Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Audi e-tron. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 42h45m 6 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 26h45m 9 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW 13h30m 19 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 230V / 3x16A 11 kW 9 hours 28 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 230V / 3x16A 11 kW † 9 hours 28 mph

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Audi e-tron.

  • Max. Power: maximum charging power the vehicle can use
  • Avg. Power: average charging power over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)
Charging Point Max. Power Avg. Power Time Rate
CCS (50 kW DC) 50 kW 45 kW 1h30m 130 mph
CCS (100 kW DC) 100 kW 95 kW 40 min 260 mph
CCS (150 kW DC) 150 kW 120 kW † 30 min 350 mph
CCS (350 kW DC) 150 kW † 120 kW † 30 min 350 mph

† = Limited by fastcharge capabilities of vehicle

NOTE: Most rapid charges are currently limited to 50 kW. Chargers with more power are expected in the near future.

All about the Audi e-tron

Pricing

The Audi e-tron has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £74,500. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Audi e-tron is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £4,500. The grant will be applied to the final invoice price of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Audi e-tron is £70,000.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Audi e-tron is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Audi e-tron is 300 kW (402 hp). The maximum torque is 490 lb-ft. The Audi e-tron is all wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 5.7 seconds. The top speed is 124 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Audi e-tron has a total capacity of 95 kWh. The usable capacity is 83.6 kWh. An estimated range of about 250 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 175 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 360 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 11 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 9 hours. However, a 3-phase grid connection is needed to achieve this. The majority of homes and charge points currently do not have this connection. In most cases the maximum charging power will be 7.4 kW, allowing for a charge time of 13 hours 30 minutes and a charge rate of 19 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 42 hours 45 minutes.

Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 150 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 120 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 30 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 175 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Audi e-tron is about 330 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 121 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 475 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 230 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Audi e-tron emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
