Audi will Bless us with an RS 6 e-tron

The Audi RS 6 e-tron may very well become one of the most sought after hyper-cool EVs in the near future


  • It could arrive by 2025.

2021 Audi RS 6 Avant Review: The One

We assume that the A6 e-tron, the first Audi to be assembled on the brand’s Premium Platform Electric (PPE) with an 800-volt system and a charging capacity of up to 270 kilowatts, will launch as early as next year. This would be followed in 2024 by the Avant iteration. And now, it looks as though RS will get to tweak the wagon.

“The PPE platform offers us plenty of performance to realise such an RS6,” says A6 marketing boss Niko Martens as reported by Car magazine. “We have the most talented designers to give you the optical look for one, too, so you’ll have to wait until that surprise is sprung on you.”

Under the A6 Avant e-tron concept’s suggestive body, a pair of electric motors, one on each axle, produce a total output of 469 horsepower (350 kilowatts) and 590 lb.-ft. (800 Newton-meters) of torque. This means that a solid 800 horsepower a real possibility for the RS 6 Avant e-tron.

2025 is shaping up to be a beautiful year. We hope we didn’t just jinx it…
