Audi has unveiled its latest concept model, an EV station wagon dubbed the Avant e-tron. It’s part of Audi’s ultra-luxurious A6 Class models and shares the same design language as the A6 Sportback e-tron.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What is the battery capacity of the Avant e-tron?

    The Avant e-tron is fitted with an 800-volt battery.
  • What is the maximum power output of the Avant e-tron concept?

    The Avant e-tron can make 463 horses with 800Nm of torque.
  • The Avant e-tron’s luxurious designation is immediately noticeable thanks to its A6 emblem. It sports a large enclosed Singleframe grille flanked by headlights with digital Matrix LED and digital OLED technology. The side profile is highlighted by graceful lines as well as sleek, camera-based virtual exterior mirrors at the base of the A-pillar and large 22-inch wheels. The rear, says Audi, features a new generation of digital OLED elements.

    Audi built the Avant e-tron using the PPE platform. It’s designed exclusively for battery-electric drive systems and puts a battery module between the axles that holds around 100kWh of energy. The batteries supply power to the two electric motors which produce around 463 horses with 800Nm of torque.

    The German carmaker is now calling the Avan e-tron a “storage champ.” and while it does come with a spacious interior, the battery is also worthy of this title.

    The Audi Avant e-tron concept wagon is equipped with a powerful 800-volt battery. It can be charged with up to 270kW in a very short time at fast-charging stations which led Audi to claim that just 10 minutes of plugging the Avant e-tron in gives owners sufficient power to drive the car for more than 300km. That said, charging the Avant e-tron for a little under 25 minutes brings the battery level up to 80 percent.

    The Audi Avant e-tron is expected to make its debut sometime this month.

    “With the Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept, we are offering a completely tangible look at future production models on our new PPE technology platform. We’re not just electrifying the Avant’s successful 45-year history. What we want most of all is to use technical skills to add an exclamation point. In particular, this includes powerful 800-volt technology, 270 kW of charging capacity, and a WLTP range of up to 700 kilometers (435 miles),” said Audi Board Member for Technical Development Oliver Hoffmann.
