Battery & Range

The battery in the Q6 e-tron consists of twelve or ten modules with prismatic cells. The nickel, cobalt, and manganese ratio is 8:1:1, and the battery achieves a higher energy density.

The battery with the launch to have the following specifications

  • Twelve modules/180 cells with 100 kWh gross (96.8 kWh net)
  • Twelve modules/192 cells with 107 kWh gross (96.8 kWh net) (China only)

These batteries will give the Audi Q6 e-tron a WLTP of 625km, depending on the trim level for the 100kWh battery (15.18 kWh/100km). Thanks to 800-volt technology, the Q6 e-tron can be charged with a capacity of more than 270kW.

You can charge the battery from five to 80 percent in less than 25 minutes on an 800-volt 350KW charger.

If the station uses 400-volt technology, the Q6 e-tron uses ‘bank charging’ for the first time, whereby corresponding high-voltage switches (gates) are automatically switched in the battery before the actual charging process begins. This technology effectively splits the 800-volt battery into two batteries with a nominal voltage of 400 volts each that can charge in parallel on one 400-volt charging station without an additional HV booster. The states of charge of the two battery halves are first aligned. This functionality will only be available on the 100kWh and 107kWh battery.

Motor and performance

The Audi Q6 e-tron comes in different performance versions.

  • 2-wheel drive standard range (Audi Q6 e-tron 40?)
  • 2-wheel drive long range (Audi Q6 e-tron 45?)
  • Audi Q6 e-tron 55 quattro with 285KW/382hp (Europe version)
  • Audi Q6 e-tron 55 quattro with 340KW/382hp (US version)
  • Audi SQ6 e-tron with 380KW/510hP + 20kw boost
  • Audi RSQ6 e-tron with 450kW and +1000nm and rear axle steering

Audi will use different motor setups on the on the comming the variants.

Motors for Audi Q6 e-tron

Audi uses permanently excited synchronous electric motors (PSM) with hairpin winding on the PPE platform for the rear motor and asynchronous motors on the front. Permanent magnets are fitted on the AC motor’s rotor, generating a permanent magnetic field. As a result, compared to asynchronous motors (ASM), PSMs offer higher power and torque densities, greater efficiency, and better reproducibility of the power output.

Suspension and steering

The Audi Q6 e-tron has new shock absorbers. They come with steel springs as standard or optional air suspension.

The Audi Q6 e-tron introduces thrilling new feature-two-valve shock absorbers. These innovative absorbers offer a significantly greater damper characteristic spread, enhancing the vehicle’s performance. But that’s not all. They can also be adjusted independently, providing a noticeable boost in comfort. This unique versatility brings the driving programs of the future Q6 e-tron to life, each one offering a distinct and exhilarating experience.

The Audi Drive Select is combined with air suspension and steel suspension. The system reacts to the road condition, speed, longitudinal and lateral acceleration, accelerator pedal modulation, steering behavior, and the car’s position level.

With air suspension, depending on the speed, the body can be lowered in combination with the air suspension, improving the aerodynamics for an increased range.

The wheel widths on the front and rear axles differs significantly to accommodate the rear-focused weight distribution – for more grip and driving dynamics.

The Audi Drive Select is combined with the air suspension in the all-electric Q6 but may also be combined with the steel suspension. The system reacts to the condition of the road but also the speed, longitudinal and lateral acceleration, accelerator pedal modulation, steering behavior, and the position level of the car.

The Q6 e-tron has a completely revised double wishbone axle with a detached strut level at the front. Its kinematics and elastokinematics enable improved responsiveness, steering precision, and straight-line driving.

For the first time, customers can optionally select digital light signatures for this new evolution of digital daytime running lights in the Matrix LED headlights and the new generation of digital OLED rear lights. In addition, customers may book digital light signatures on demand.

The Q6 e-tron not only marks a new chapter in electromobility at Audi; lighting technology is an important part of Audi’s DNA. With the world’s first active digital light signature, the Audi Q6 e-tron ushers in a new era characterized by distinctive design and aesthetics unique to Audi.

With second-generation digital OLED rear lights, the Audi Q6 e-tron is taking light design, range of functions, and road safety to a new level.
