Audi is intensifying its electric vehicle product portfolio with the Premium Platform Electric (PPE); a key component for the expansion of the global range of all-electric Audi models.

For Audi, it represents an important step in becoming a leading provider of sustainable premium mobility. For the next generation of electric vehicles from Audi, the company has redeveloped the electric motors, the power electronics, the transmission, as well as the high-voltage battery and all related components, and tailored them exactly to the requirements of battery electric vehicles.


The company is gradually refitting all production sites for the manufacture of all electric models instead of building new ones.

In line with the early decision to phase out the combustion engine, Audi has also intensively promoted the transformation of its employees and trained the workforce for fields of the future, for example in the new battery assembly plant in Ingolstadt. The brand with the four rings is thus increasing vertical integration and bringing important skills to the sites. At the same time, Audi is creating new job opportunities.

The scalable and future-proof electronic architecture allows Audi to offer various vehicle models and derivatives on a standardised electronic basis through the PPE.


This approach reduces complexity in both development and production and creates additional economies of scale. In addition, the new electronic architecture forms the basis for future innovations.

The Audi Q6 e-tron is the first all electric model series produced on the Premium Platform Electric (PPE), marking the next step in the company's transformation into a provider of premium electric mobility, and stands for Audi's commitment to sustainability, from production to product.

The model is defined not only by impressive driving and charging performance, but also by increased efficiency and long range. The Audi Q6 e-tron embodies typical Audi SUV styling with a further refined e-tron design language.


When designing and developing the high-voltage (HV) battery for the Premium Platform Electric (PPE), Audi prioritised both range and charging performance.

With a state of charge (SoC) of about 10 percent, just 10 minutes at a fast-charging station with a maximum charging power of 270 kW is enough to replenish up to 255 kilometres of range on the Q6 e-tron under ideal conditions. This is enabled by the 800-volt architecture, the new preconditioned HV battery, and the new predictive thermal management in the PPE.

The interior of the Audi Q6 e-tron is orientated towards the needs of the user more than ever. The Audi Multi Media Interface (MMI) panoramic display and the MMI passenger display form a visually clear digital stage. The interior is finished with high-quality materials - some of which are recycled - which can also be found in the seats.

Thanks to the new PPE, which was developed specifically for e-mobility, the vehicle has a generous feeling of space and roominess as well as a high level of everyday practicality. The interior offers plenty of storage space and compartments. The increased comfort of the middle seat in the rear is typical of an electric car with a long wheelbase and lacking a central tunnel. As a result, the Audi Q6 e-tron offers space for five passengers and their luggage.


Available exclusively for “242” ordering, the new Audi Q6 e-tron “Launch edition”, with a range up to 572Km*, also features a complementary upgrade with an impressive interior and exterior design package valued at €5,000 included in the monthly rate of €698*.

The Audi Q6 e-tron performance is the Audi Q6 e-tron rear-wheel drive offering and boosts a range up to 635Km*, while providing a system output of 240 kW, accelerating from 0 to 100Km/h in under 7 seconds.

Overtake your expectations, with the brand new, fully electric Audi Q6 e-tron and be amongst the first to appreciate the car prior to its launch on Irish roads later this summer.

Experience the Audi Q6 e-tron at an exclusive sneak peek preview in Audi dealerships from June 21st to July 11th. The new Audi Q6 e-tron sets new standards in terms of performance, range, charging, driving dynamics and design, taking the digital experience to a new level.

All roads lead to the Audi Q6 e-tron.
