Audi is currently in the process of turning its stunning A6 e-tron Concept car into a fully-functioning production car. The Concept was a gorgeous, sleek, and subtly muscular all-electric sedan, so we’re hoping the production car looks similar. In these new spy photos, we can see that it should look similar but not exactly the same. (We don’t own the spy photos but you can see them here)
These new photos show off the upcoming Audi A6 e-tron putting in some work at the Nürburgring. The test mule in these photos is covered completely in camouflage, which prevents us from seeing almost anything. Though, there are a few details we can make out.
For starters, it’s clear the Audi A6 e-tron will have split headlights. This is a new design, not taken from the concept car, and I’m not quite sure how I feel about it. If these new lights are anything like those found on the newly BMW X7 facelift, the upper half of the headlights will act as slick looking daytime running lights, as well as turn signals. While the lower half acts as both the main and high beams.
It’s silhouette is similar to the concept car’s, only with a bit more of a hatchback looking trunk. It has a sort of A5 Sportback body shape to it, which means it will be more practical than your average sedan but the looks won’t be fore everyone. It also looks like the pull-style exterior door handles will be replaced with flush ones, similar to older Audis, such as my old B6 Audi A4.
The back end is too heavily covered in camouflage to be of any use o us. Though, expect some sort of very snazzy taillight technology for the Audi A6 e-tron.
We can’t wait to see the Audi A6 e-tron in the flesh when it finally debuts. Until then, though, these spy photos will have to suffice.
