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 Sportback. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.
NOTE: Audi has not released details about the on-board charger of the e-tron Sportback. The information below is based on estimatation of the most likely on-board charger.
|Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)|
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Power||Time||Rate|
|Wall Plug (2.3 kW)||230V / 1x10A||2.3 kW||42h45m||7 mph|
|1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW||26h45m||11 mph|
|1-phase 32A (7.4 kW)||230V / 1x32A||7.4 kW||13h30m||21 mph|
|3-phase 16A (11 kW)||400V / 3x16A||11 kW||9 hours||31 mph|
|3-phase 32A (22 kW)||400V / 3x16A||11 kW †||9 hours||31 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 Sportback.
- 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||150 mph|
|CCS (100 kW DC)||100 kW||95 kW||40 min||290 mph|
|CCS (175 kW DC)||150 kW †||140 kW †||30 min||390 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 Sportback
This electric vehicle is a concept: data marked with * are estimates and other data might not be officially confirmed. The text below is written as if the Audi e-tron Sportback would be available today. Please note that data for the final production version might differ significantly from the concept. The purpose of listing this concept vehicle is to give an insight in upcoming vehicles and EV trends.
The Audi e-tron Sportback has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £72,500. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Audi e-tron Sportback is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £3,500. The grant will be applied to the final invoice price of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Audi e-tron Sportback is £69,000.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Audi e-tron Sportback is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Audi e-tron Sportback is 370 kW (496 hp). The maximum torque is 590 lb-ft. The Audi e-tron Sportback is all wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds. The top speed is 130 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Audi e-tron Sportback has a total capacity of 95 kWh. The usable capacity is 83.6 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 280 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.
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 21 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 140 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 30 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 195 miles of range.
The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Audi e-tron Sportback is about 295 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 136 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.
The Audi e-tron Sportback 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.
