    We have previously reported to you that Audi will be globally launching the Q6 e-tron SUV in 2024. Now, our sister publication Autocar UK has learnt that the all-electric SUV will have a range of 600km on a single charge. The Q6 e-tron will be one of more than 20 new models the brand plans to launch by 2025, with half of them being EVs. It will be underpinned by the new Premium Platform Electric (PPE) architecture co-developed with Porsche, which will be used by the Macan EV.

    The 600km range was recently confirmed to our sister publication by technical development boss Oliver Hoffmann. The PPE platform allows a charging rate of up to 270kW, thanks to its 800V technology. Full performance figures for the Q6 e-tron have yet to be released, but the Audi A6 e-tron concept packs a claimed 469hp and 800Nm from its dual-motor, four-wheel-drive powertrain.

    The Macan EV boosts this to 611hp and more than 953Nm, thanks to new permanently excited electric motors using a "double V" magnet arrangement. However, this technology may be reserved for Porsche, or for a future ‘RS’ variant of the Q6.

    The Q6 e-tron SUV will be followed by the launch of a coupé-SUV version, or Sportback in Audi’s speak. This is expected to trade some practicality and affordability for a more fashionable and aerodynamic body shape, yielding a slight boost in range. The Q6 will be sandwiched between the  Audi Q4 e-tron and the Q8 e-tron, both of which are on sale globally.

    Audi Q6 e-tron launch plans

    Previously planned to launch last year, the Q6 E-tron will be revealed in the second half of this year, hitting global markets by the start of 2024. It will be the first electric Audi to be built at the brand’s historic Ingolstadt factory in Germany, and it currently produces the Audi Q2, Audi A3, Audi A4 and Audi A5.

    The Audi Q6 e-tron could even make it to Indian shores after it goes on sale globally. Audi currently sells the e-tron, e-tron Sportback, e-tron GT and RS e-tron GT in India.
