Regenerative braking is used as much as possible, but the friction brakes are used for deceleration stronger than 0.4 G.

A heat pump helps efficiently generate warmth for the cabin without using too much battery power, Audi says.

Multiple drive modes and a predictive efficiency system will let you optimize the model's economy.

In the Auto and Efficiency drive modes, the A6 will "coast" with the engine and motor turned off when the driver lifts off the throttle.
