The Q6 e-tron will arrive in the standard SUV and Sportback body styles, while an RS version is also likely sometime in the future. Audi is likely to equip the Q6 e-tron with a 100-kilowatt-hour battery pack and two electric motors. The Q6 e-tron will be capable of generating more than 500 hp of power in the top-spec variant. It is expected to offer a range of around 600 kilometres on a single charge.

The German carmaker has not officially revealed the technical details yet. The electric SUV will come with an 800-volt electrical system, powerful electric motors and an “innovative" battery and charging management system. The company further says that the e-SUV will feature a newly developed electronics architecture, taking a major step in electrification and digitalisation for the brand as a whole. It is expected to charge from 10 per cent to 80 per cent in about 20 minutes using fast charging.

Audi Q6 e-tron will offer unique LED light system which will allow one to customise its output. Audi will equip the electric SUV with Matrix LED headlights and digital OLED display for the taillights. The headlights have been designed for road safety by reducing glare. The lights also offer as many as 8 digital light signatures.

The electric offering is expected to make its way to the Indian market as well, either in 2024 or by 2025.
