Attention explosives! You have to put the next Audi RS 6 at the charging station

Do you remember the Audi gang? That was a group of bombers with a preference for powerful Audis, such as the RS 4 and RS 6. The criminals used them to quickly get away from the crime scene and stay ahead of the police. From 2026 they will have to ensure that the battery of their power station is full, because the next generation Audi RS 6 will be a plug-in hybrid.

The current Audi RS 6 – with 600 hp twin-turbo V8 – will last until 2025. It will then be replaced by the very last RS 6 with combustion engine. Audi has already confirmed that the model will get a plug-in hybrid powertrain. Whether the electric motor and battery support a V6 or V8 is not yet known. Given the increasingly strict emission requirements (Euro 7 will come into effect in 2025), we think that Audi will opt for a six-cylinder.

NextAudi RS 6 is the last with combustion engine

Why the next RS 6 will be the last with a combustion engine? Because Audi has decided to launch only fully electric cars from 2026. The petrol and diesel models that existed at the time are still serving their time, but all new Audis will receive an electric motor (or two), a battery and a plug.

Will there be another Audi RS 6 Performance? That’s what it looks like

The current RS 6 is not yet fully developed. The Australian car magazine Wheels asked an Audi spokesperson about a possible RS 6 Performance and the answer was hopeful. “We have some ideas, so just wait and see. We’ve launched a Performance version of the previous RS 6 and the R8 RWD, so I think you can rest assured that we’ll continue our Performance strategy.”
