A Class Of Its Own

Audi A6 Avant e-tron Proves Electric SUVs Are Overrated

Audi would not outright validate if this notion will ever get there in the United States, simply telling CarBuzz to “never say never.” But regardless of whether it arrives stateside or not, the enterprise is adamant that elements from this concept will make it on manufacturing vehicles.

“With the Audi A6 Avant e-tron thought, we are supplying a completely tangible glimpse at upcoming output designs on our new PPE engineering system,” states Audi Board Member for Technical Improvement Oliver Hoffmann. “We’re not just electrifying the Avant’s productive 45-yr historical past. What we want most of all is to use specialized ability to increase an exclamation stage. In particular, this includes strong 800 volt technological know-how, 270 kW of charging potential, and a WLTP vary of up to 700 kilometers (435 miles).”

Audi suggests the 800 volt charging architecture will permit the auto to recoup a lot more than 300 kilometers (186 miles) of vary in just 10 minutes. In less than 25 minutes, the 100 kWh battery will charge from five to 80 per cent. As a notice, Audi’s believed 435-mile array is on the WLPT cycle, which equates to close to 305 miles on the EPA cycle.
