Audi A6 Avant e-tron

Audi has unveiled a concept of the A6 Avant e-tron, based on the A6 Sportback e-tron Concept exhibited at the Shanghai Motor Show in 2021; the station wagon version now appears in an unprecedented battery variant, however, re-proposing the much-loved silhouette that distinguishes the family cars of the house of the Four Rings. Although still a concept, Audi specifies that the model could arrive in production in 2024 with minor modifications.

Ingolstadt has had some talent for making beautiful station wagons over the years and this A6 Avant e-tron it could definitely follow in the footsteps of previous models; while the front part shares some elements of the current cars on the market or on the way, the side section is renewed and, in particular, the rear one. The result is a car of almost 5 meters, characterized by aerodynamic but also muscular lines. Thanks to the aerodynamically functional design, the Cx of the car is just 0.24, the same value as the e-Tron GT. At the moment, the interiors are unknown but it is legitimate to wait for a high level of on-board habitability considering the type of car and, above all, a large trunk with a regular shape.

The price is unknown at the moment, even if the A6 range has always been aimed at the premium public attentive to both design and performance and it is therefore easy to imagine an uncontained market value.

Up front, only a small handful of styling cues differentiate the A6 Avant E-Tron concept from its sedan counterpart. Both body styles feature a body-colored insert where you'd expect to find a grille and sharp-looking headlights with Matrix LED technology that will soon be legal in the United States. It's what's beyond the front end that counts: The roof line peaks above the front passengers and gently slopes towards a spoiler mounted above a steeply-raked D-pillar. The rear end is dominated by a light bar with digital OLED elements that are customizable, a feature that illustrates an upcoming way to personalize a car. All told, the Avant's design puts a bigger emphasis on form than on function.
