Audi has had some big plans for the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show. And nobody knew about them. Because the German car manufacturer managed to surprise us when they unveiled the all-new A6 e-tron Concept car.

Don’t take the name into consideration because the concept car is bigger and has a totally different design compared to the classic A6 sedan. It is more like a Sportback variant and it is based on the PPE platform. This architecture is especially developed for electric cars and was made by Audi and Porsche.

In 2022, Porsche will launch an electric Macan while Audi will launch the Q6 e-tron SUV. Both cars will be based on the PPE platform.
