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 55 quattro. 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
Standard 11.0 kW On-Board Charger
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 42h45m 5 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 26h45m 8 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW 13h30m 17 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW 9 hours 25 mph

3-phase 16A (11 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW 9 hours 25 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 400V / 3x32A 22 kW † 4h30m 50 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 55 quattro.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%

All about the Audi e-tron 55 quattro

Pricing

The Audi e-tron 55 quattro has a Recommend Retail Price (RRP) of £70,805 and an On The Road Price (OTR) of £71,520. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Audi e-tron 55 quattro is eligible for a Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £3,500. The grant will be applied to the invoice of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Audi e-tron 55 quattro is £68,020.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Audi e-tron 55 quattro is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Audi e-tron 55 quattro is 300 kW (402 hp). The maximum torque is 490 lb-ft. The Audi e-tron 55 quattro 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 55 quattro has a total capacity of 95 kWh. The usable capacity is 83.6 kWh. A range of about 225 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 160 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 315 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 17 mph. An optional on-board charger with a maximum power of 22.0 kW is available. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 4 hours 30 minutes. 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 155 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 146 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 30 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 155 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Audi e-tron 55 quattro is about 370 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 109 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 520 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 265 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Audi e-tron 55 quattro 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.
