Audi Q6 e-tron Quattro Revealed – Charging Tech

The impressive charging performance of this vehicle relies heavily on intelligent, high-performance, and predictive thermal management.

Additionally, charging becomes fully automated.

For the first time, if a charging station operates with 400-volt technology, the Audi Q6 e-tron1 can facilitate bank charging. This entails the automatic division of the 800-volt battery into two batteries with equal voltage, allowing them to be charged in parallel at rates of up to 135 kW. Depending on the state of charge, both battery halves are initially equalized before being charged simultaneously. Furthermore, AC charging with capacities of up to 11 kW is feasible at standard home chargers.
