The 2025 Audi Q6 e-tron is a battery-electric compact luxury crossover SUV from German car manufacturer Audi. The Audi Q6 e-tron is based on the Premium Platform Electric co-developed by Audi and Porsche. The 2025 Audi Q6 e-tron is placed between the Q4 e-tron and Q8 e-tron and aims to be a solution for those who find the first one a little small and the second one a little too big.
The Q6 e-tron debuts the new Premium Platform Electric (or PPE) architecture, which features a powerful 800-volt electrical system for faster charging and will be found under other future Audi EVs, such as the Audi A6 e-tron. It’s expected the Q6 e-tron to have a standard all-wheel-drive powertrain with dual electric motors, a setup that Audi will likely call Quattro. It will rival other EV SUVs like the Cadillac Lyriq, Genesis Electrified GV70, and Lexus RZ when it launches in 2024.
It’s expected Audi will follow a similar trim level structure, offering Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige trim groups in traditional SUV or slanted Sportback body configurations. A dual-motor, all-wheel-drive powertrain setup will likely be standard, and a more powerful S model is also possible. The electric crossover will likely offer convenience features like a wireless smartphone charging pad and keyless entry, along with more luxurious options like heated and ventilated seats and a heated steering wheel.
2025 Audi Q6 : Interior
Audi has pulled the covers off the interior of the new Q6 e-tron and the model is equipped with a number of completely new technologies that you will not see in other models in the range. A single glass panel is wrapped around the driver, housing an 11.9-inch digital driver display and a 14.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The shotgun user gets their own 10.9-inch touchscreen, which they can use to assist the driver with things like adjusting the navigation system and changing radio stations. This screen also includes a privacy screen that allows the passenger to watch movies without distracting the driver.
The 2025 Audi Q6 e-tron is the optional augmented reality head-up display. The interior of the Q6 e-tron features new luxury-looking fabric options and is produced using recycled materials. If you choose the S-Line model, you can choose Dinamica or Nappa leather, which has a suede-like coating on the seats. Wood, brushed aluminum or painted metal options are available for the instrument panel finish.
2025 Audi Q6 : Engine
The all-wheel-drive version produces 375 horsepower, which Audi estimates is good for a jump to 62 mph in less than six seconds. Boost mode unlocks a bonus output of 395 horsepower for a short period of time. The performance-oriented Audi SQ6 raises the bar with 482 horsepower, while Boost mode produces 509 horsepower. Audi’s PPE platform features an 800-volt architecture that delivers very powerful electricity. The top charging speed for an estimated 93.0 kWh battery is 270 kW, and Audi says it can charge the battery from 10 percent to 80 percent in less than 30 minutes. While the furthest-going Q6 e-tron is estimated to be good for around 372 miles on the European WLTP test cycle, that range between charges is likely to be around 315 miles, though loosely converted by EPA methods.
2025 Audi Q6 : Safety
Audi has a strong reputation for safety across its vehicle lineup, and it’s likely that the Audi Q6 e-tron would maintain these high standards. Audi said it plans to encourage the adoption of this technology by other automakers in the coming years to help improve safety through vehicle-to-everything communications. Audi incorporates advanced safety technologies in its vehicles, including adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assistance, emergency braking, and a suite of airbags. Additionally, electric vehicles like the 2025 Audi Q6 e-tron often benefit from reinforced battery enclosures to enhance safety.
