Porsche is expanding its Macan range with a battery-electric variant based on the new PPE dedicated electric-vehicle platform developed by Automaker in partnership with the Volkswagen Group brand Audi.
The electric McCann is due to end in 2023, and just as we saw with the Porsche Tycoon and the Audi E-Tron GT Twins, it will eventually create an Audi counterpart called the Q6 E-Tron.
A prototype for Audi has just been seen again, revealing that it will look similar to the recently launched Q4 E-Tron, only on a larger scale. However, a new component in the Q6 E-Tron, also new to the Audi brand, is a split headlight design.
Audi CEO Marcus Dusman first confirmed the Q6 E-Tron at the Automaker’s annual general meeting in early 2021. He said in a speech that the Q6 e-Tron is expected to end in 2022, which means we will probably see it reach dealerships by 2023. The model assumes that there is no delay from chip shortages and other epidemic-related problems.
Production of the Q6 E-Tron will be conducted at Audi’s plant in Ingolstadt, Germany, which is being developed for PPE-based vehicles, as well as batteries.
The Q6 E-Tron is expected to be slightly larger than the Q5, just as the Q4 E-Tron is slightly larger than the Q3. Duisman did not supply any spectacles to the car, but we do know that its PPE platform will have an 800-volt electrical system and a maximum range of 300 miles or more in charge.

Like another coupe, the Q6 Sportback E-Tron is thought to be in the pipeline. Six months to a year after the regular Q6 E-Tron we need to see the slicker variant.
Audi has ambitious plans for the EV, as the automaker aims to have 20 in its lineup by early 2025. It has already launched E-Tron, E-Tron GT and Q4 E-Tron and will be adding this Q6 E-Tron soon. , As well as an A6 e-tron. An electric A8 replacement will be released in 2024 and sales are expected to begin in 2025.
The automaker announced last June that it would launch its final car equipped with an internal-combustion engine in early 2026. This means you can expect that most models in the Audi lineup will switch to electrical power if redesigned. Stay tuned.
