2023 Audi Q6 e-tron Preview Price, Specs, Release Date

2023 Audi Q6 e-tron

Model Preview

Audi’s focusing on coming out with electric vehicles, but is doing so by doubling down on SUVs. The newest EV to come with the German automaker's badge will be the 2023 Audi Q6 e-tron. The Q6 e-tron is expected to be built on the Premium Platform Electric (PPE) architecture that’s being co-developed with Bentley and Porsche.

While the Q6 e-tron has been confirmed, Audi hasn’t revealed any pictures of what the electric SUV will look like. We’ve seen spy shots of the SUV, though it’s always been heavily camouflaged. From the photos, we can see that the Q6 e-tron will wear slim headlights, a massive grille, triangular taillights, and an exhaust-less bumper. The Q6 e-tron is expected to have a familial design with Audi’s other electric SUVs like the Q4 and e-tron. Size-wise, the Q6 e-tron should be slightly larger than the Q5.

Interior shots of the 2023 Q6 e-tron are scarce. Just like the SUV’s exterior design, we believe the electric SUV will share the same interior look as Audi’s smaller SUVs. That means the Q6 will have a simplistic, tech-forward design with two large screens, limited buttons, and a center console that’s slightly angled toward the driver.

Official powertrain specifications for the 2023 Q6 e-tron are not available yet. We expect the SUV to be available with a dual-motor setup with roughly 470 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. The battery pack should have a capacity of roughly 100 kWh and offer 350-kW charging. Range should be in the 300-mile ballpark.

As an all-electric vehicle, the Q6 e-tron will be eligible for up to a $7,500 federal EV tax credit. Additionally, state and local incentives can reduce the SUV’s starting price tag for consumers looking to purchase or lease the vehicle.

Pricing & Release Date

Audi has not announced when the 2023 Q6 e-tron will go on sale, but production has been delayed for the brand due to the semiconductor chip shortage and the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Production was originally expected to start in late 2022, but it's possible that production will be delayed until the beginning of 2023.

Pricing details haven't been released yet, but the SUV will cost more than the Q4 e-tron, which starts at $44,945 with destination. We expect the Q6 e-tron to arrive as a 2023 model in fall 2022.
