Audi A6 e-tron May Get A Wagon Variant

Audi hints that another desirable electric wagon might be in the works


  • The A6 e-tron Sportback was revealed at last month’s Shanghai auto show.

  • This e-tron is built on the PPE platform.


We have to hand it to the Volkswagen Auto Group. They are among the very few to include the station wagon body style within their collections of all-new electric vehicles. Porsche has the Taycan Cross Turismo while Volkswagen is expected to launch a production version of the ID. Space Vizzion concept. Now, we learn that there’s a good chance the Audi A6 e-tron will also be available in estate form.

Audi Reveals A6 E-Tron Sportback At Shanghai Show

The Audi A6 e-tron Sportback concept introduced last month is the first model from an upcoming A6-segment of electric cars. Unlike what many thought, this A6 Sportback is not set to replace the A7 but to be sold alongside it.

Audi’s development chief for the PPE platform, Johannes Arneth said, according to Autocar: “We really wanted to stress that it belongs to the A6 model family. The A7 is a very successful derivative of the A6 family, and it’s independent enough for its own name. But with the derivatives that could come later, the A6 seemed to us to be the more logical choice.”

The A6 has long offered a wagon variant and Audi will offer such a body style for this new family of e-tron models. This anticipated new version explains why the A6 name is being used for this category of new PPE-based electric vehicles and not A7.
