Audi is expanding its range of electrified models: Following the A6 saloon, the station wagon version of the Audi A6 is now also being launched as a plug-in hybrid. The new A6 Avant TFSI e quattro offers up to 51 kilometres of electric range in the WLTP cycle with prices starting at 71,940 euros.
The technical specifications of the PHEV station wagon are almost exactly the same as those of the A6 saloon, meaning that the A6 Avant TFSI e quattro sports a four-cylinder petrol engine and a 105 kW electric motor. The 2.0-litre combustion engine contributes 185 kW to the system output, which Audi says totals to 270 kW. The A6 can reach speeds of up to 135 km/h with the electric drive, while in hybrid mode, the top speed is 250 km/h.
The electric range according to WLTP is up to 51 kilometres, two kilometres less than in the saloon. As with the saloon, Audi specifies fuel consumption at 1.9 to 2.1 litres, while power consumption is slightly higher at 17.6 to 18.1 kWh. In contrast to the range, these are values measured according to WLTP and then calculated back to the NEDC. Further identical details were worked out when we presented the partially electrified A6 Sedan.
As a station wagon, the A6 Avant TFSI e quattro should naturally stand out from the rest of the car by virtue of its boot capacity: the standard version here has 405 litres without a step in the boot floor, as Audi describes it. When the rear seat is folded down the volume increases to up to 1,535 litres. Visually, the estate version of the A6 saloon lags a bit behind in terms of sportiness: here too, the basic equipment includes the ‘S line exterior package’, black applications, red brake callipers and 19-inch rims.
The entry-level price for the Audi A6 Avant 55 TFSI e quattro is 71,940 euros – slightly higher than that of the sedan (68,850 euros).
