Anticipated Arrival of Electric Audi RS6 Sedan Slated for 2025

Audi RS6 Sedan Expected To Return As EV In 2025

In 2025, Audi​ will reintroduce the RS6 sedan, but​ this time as a fully electric vehicle. For the past⁣ 13 years, the RS6 ‍has only been available in Avant form. The last RS6 sedan was manufactured in 2010 and⁢ featured the same V10 ​engine as the Lamborghini Gallardo and ​Audi‍ R8.

According to British publication AutoCar, the⁤ electric Audi RS6​ sedan​ is set to go on sale in 2025, following the release of the A6 e-tron⁢ in 2024. The electric RS6 has already been⁣ spotted undergoing testing‌ and is expected ​to offer significantly more power than the current combustion engine ⁢version.

Like the⁤ A6 e-tron, the electric RS6 will be based on the VW Group’s new Premium Platform ‍Electric ‌(PPE) chassis. The ‍first vehicle to ‍utilize this platform will be the ⁢Porsche Macan EV,⁤ which is scheduled to debut later this year.

The concept⁤ version of the A6​ e-tron was unveiled in 2021 and boasted‍ an impressive WLTP range of 435 miles, surpassing Audi’s current ⁤electric​ vehicle offerings. Audi also⁢ mentioned ⁣that ‍the A6 e-tron would support 270-kilowatt fast charging, ⁢allowing for an additional 186 miles of ​range ⁤in just⁢ 10 minutes.

The A6 e-tron will ⁣feature dual motors with approximately‍ 470 horsepower, capable of accelerating from 0 to‌ 60 miles per ‌hour ‍in ‌just ​4 ‌seconds. There ⁢will also be an entry-level rear-wheel drive ⁤model⁤ available, which Audi claims will have the best efficiency. In comparison, ⁢the RS6 variant is expected ⁣to deliver over 700 horsepower and achieve a ⁢sub 3-second 0-60 mph time in ​order to​ compete with​ its rivals.
