Re-imagining the enduring saloon kind
“On electrical vehicles, it’s vital for us to retain basic proportions,” says Audi’s Senior Exterior Designer, Sascha Heyde. “We wish to construct extremely emotional and extremely environment friendly cars with stunning strains that don’t essentially look totally different.”
The Audi A6 e-tron idea actually fulfils that transient, with a modern four-door Sportback coupé kind that takes Audi’s fast-evolving e-tron design language to a brand new stage. Within the Audi A6 e-tron idea’s case, this implies a protracted wheelbase and quick overhangs, which – mixed with the massive 22-inch wheels – supply a head-turning profile, in addition to extra inside area for drivers and passengers.
“With an electrical battery, we’re working with size and width, not top,” says Heyde. “That allow us design a protracted wheelbase, with an excessive amount of area between the axles for the battery. That makes a flat silhouette doable. So, the Audi A6 e-tron idea represents a smooth transition the place Audi’s conventional strains and proportions have their place.”
Formed by the wind
On the entrance of the Audi A6 e-tron idea, the blanked out aero-friendly e-tron evolution of Audi’s iconic Singleframe grille – framed by the slim Digital Matrix LED headlights – helps set the pattern for a streamlined form that creates a super-low drag coefficient of simply 0.22Cd and delivers enhanced all-electric vary.
