Shoppers searching for a luxurious electric SUV have quite a few options these days, and Audi is gearing up to add yet another to the list: the 2025 Q6 e-tron. Slotting between the Q4 e-tron and Q8 e-tron, it aims to be a solution for those who find the former a bit too small and the latter a bit too big. The Q6 e-tron will be the first vehicle to ride on the new Premium Platform Electric (or PPE) architecture, which features a powerful 800-volt electrical system for faster charging and will be found underneath other future Audi EVs such as the Audi A6 e-tron. We expect the Q6 e-tron to have a standard all-wheel-drive powertrain with dual electric motors, a setup that Audi will likely call Quattro. When it hits the market sometime next year, it'll rival other EV SUVs such as the Cadillac Lyriq, the Genesis Electrified GV70, and the Lexus RZ.
What's New for 2025?
The Q6 e-tron is an all-new model that's expected to debut sometime during the 2023 calendar year and enter the market for the 2025 model year.
Audi hasn't released information on pricing for the Q6 e-tron yet, but we expect it to be priced in accordance with its position between the Q4 e-tron and Q8 e-tron models. We also expect it to follow a similar trim-level structure, offering Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige equipment groups in either conventional SUV or sloped Sportback body configurations. A dual-motor, all-wheel-drive drivetrain setup will likely be standard and it's possible there will be a more powerful S model. The electric crossover will also likely offer convenient features such as a wireless smartphone charging pad and keyless entry in addition to more luxurious options like heated and ventilated seats and a heated steering wheel.
