First pictures of a disguised Audi A6 e-tron prototype emerge online
It is no secret that the two German luxury automakers Audi and Porsche are working on numerous electric cars based on the shared platform called PPE, short for "Premium Platform Electric". However, the final designs of these premium EVs are not exactly set in stone, which is why first images of an apparent Audi A6 e-tron prototype are now making the rounds online.
According to a report by Motor1, the Audi A6 e-tron was supposedly caught by a photographer during a test drive by one of Audi's suppliers. Several pictures of the electric sedan, which is scheduled for a launch in 2023, can be seen in an according photo gallery. These images for example show a redesigned front including headlights whose daytime running lights and projector for the high and low beam are clearly separated. Due to the camouflage pattern of the Audi A6 e-tron prototype, other potential design changes are hardly discernible.
Unfortunately, there are no new and exciting details regarding the technical specifications of the electric powertrain of the Audi A6 e-tron, but the officially revealed concept car featured two electric motors with an output of 350 kW and 590 lb ft of torque. Its giant 100 kWH battery is further expected to provide a range of more than 435 miles according to the WLTP standard, which means that the Audi A6 e-tron could possibly turn into a worthy competitor for established luxury electric sedans like the Tesla Model S.
