Welcome to the world of cars
If you recall last year’s Audi A6 e-tron concept, which teased an electric version of the company’s mid-size car, you’ll recognize the A6 Avant e-tron concept unveiled today. This attractive idea teases a wagon variation of the electric A6 planned in 2024, with much of the same style and technology as the earlier A6 e-tron concept, but with a longer roof that appeals to our eyes even more.
The A6 Avant e-tron is comparable in length to the gas-powered A6 wagon, which is already available in the US as a raised Allroad and a high-performance RS6 Avant, although it is wider and two inches lower than the hefty RS6. Audi claims a drag coefficient of just 0.24. Air intakes for cooling the batteries, engines, and brakes, as well as air curtains to gently channel air around the side of the car, are hidden under the famous Audi grille. The rear diffuser has more prominent tunnels to minimize lift than the A6 e-tron sedan.
The matrix LED and OLED lighting technology on the A6 Avant e-tron, like that on the sedan, allows for a variety of entertaining party tricks. Projectors in the body’s side greet passengers with messages thrown into the ground beside the car, and they may also project useful signals like a warning symbol to incoming bicycles that the door is about to open. When the car is parked, Audi claims that the projectors can show a video game onto a wall while the passengers play inside.
