Audi and other manufacturers have become accustomed to presenting concepts that represent 90 percent of potential production models. The new A6 E-Tron EV concept from the German car manufacturer is another example. With some modifications made to the official photos, we can get a good idea of what the production model will look like.
ElectricVehicleWeb got in touch with us to promote their new A6 E-Tron production-spec renderings, and we said they did. They don’t have to do much, but the front bumper and grille have been slightly altered, door handles added, and some current production Audi wheels (21 inches instead of the 22-inch concept) were added as well.
They also ditched the front-lit Audi badge, enlarged the headlights slightly, and removed the E-Tron script from the underside of the bumper (since no similar Audi power production line). What hasn’t changed is the side pod containing the rearview camera, as Audi already has something similar for its production model.

Audi has yet to confiirm the A6 E-Tron as a production model. Although it must be said, the fact that the automaker chose to call this concept A6 is a strong indiication that it will be in production. The manufacturer hasn’t shown a photo of the interior yet: maybe it’s too close to production, and they don’t want to show it, or the workspace doesn’t exist.
The big news with the A6 E-Tron is that it is the first VW group vehicle to use the new PPE platform jointly developed by Audi and Porsche. It will also support the upcoming electric Tiger (which will be a completely different vehicle from the next-generation gas-burning Tiger) and the Audi Q6 E-Tron electric crossover.
