We have already mentioned that Audi, in addition to the top-of-the-range Sphere family, made up of the Urbansphere, Skysphere, Grandsphere and Activesphere concepts, will produce a tram just under five meters long called the A6 e-tron, which will be offered in a saloon version. and Avant, the van. It is now known that these two models will also be offered in a sporty version, the RS6..
Audi has always had the A6 as one of its most popular models, back in the days when combustion engines single-handedly dominated the automotive industry. In addition to the four-door saloon versions and the versatile Avant van, the model’s image was achieved mainly at the expense of the RS6, the family sports car and sold in both body versions. Well then, Despite the switch to electric technology, the good news is that the exciting RS6 will still be around, in both body styles and built on the EPP platform. (Premium Platform Electric), which is scheduled to hit the market in 2024.
Audi chief designer Marc Lichte revealed to Top Gear that the philosophy of the RS6 will remain, assuming itself as a respectable sports car that does not renounce its family vocation, where it is still possible to transport bicycles and other bulky objects. And this is even a good strategic option, since keeping the sports version will not only generate interesting sales volume, but the more exuberant image of the RS6 will do wonders for the image and reputation of all A6s.
Lichte even made progress when Audi revealed the design of the future RS6 to a group of 1,000 top managers of the company, who “They went crazy with what they saw”. And the stylist went further, ensuring that the RS6 will have 90% of the solutions advanced by the A6 e-tron Concept that you can see in the photos, the concept that anticipated the future A6 for sale to the public and that will be equally low and wide. And in a period in which several brands accuse electric SUVs of being too heavy and with little aerodynamics, it will be curious to see to what extent Audi’s option to bet on sedans and vans will prove successful.
