The Audi A6 e-tron Avant could become the best-looking electric car on the market


In mid-March, Audi unveiled the stunning A6 e-tron Concept and A6 e-tron Avant Concept and, as this walkaround video from Autotrader shows, the latter could be one of the best looking EVs on the market.

Audi has confirmed that the A6 e-tron Avant Concept will spawn a production model that will hit the market in 2024. It could serve as the perfect all-electric alternative to the iconic RS6 Avant and would be a welcome relief for all the SUVs and sedans that are beginning to dominate the electric vehicle market.

The front of the concept immediately catches the eye thanks to a pair of striking headlamps and Audi’s signature single-frame grille. Importantly, this grille is completely smooth, and instead of vents to provide cooling to an internal combustion engine, it instead features dozens of pronounced dimples and an illuminated Audi decal.

Because no matter how beautiful the front of the Audi A6 e-tron Avant Concept is, it is the sides and rear that make us most enthusiastic. Gone are traditional side mirrors and in place are slim cameras on the back. In addition, the dazzling concept shows off flowing body lines and folds along the doors, while a set of 22-inch wheels with silver and black spokes made a particularly bold statement. The lack of door handles adds to the sleek design.

The rear is simply stunning. There’s a full-width light bar made up of dozens of individual OLEDs, as well as a gorgeous spoiler tucked neatly into the glass roof and rear window. A dramatic diffuser is also featured and is finished in a slightly lighter shade of gray than the rest of the concept.

Both A6 e-tron Concepts are supported by the Premium Platform Electric (PPE) that Audi has developed together with Porsche. This platform is designed for both regular passenger cars and SUVs and will be used for the first time in the Q6 e-tron, which will be launched in 2023.
