e-tron

The world is changing – and mobility is changing with it. Be inspired by it and experience the movement of tomorrow. Because with e-tron, electromobility is not only sustainable but also exciting. Loaded with a thrilling design, a breathtaking driving experience, and innovative technology for almost limitless freedom.

What is e-tron?

e-tron means enjoyment while driving and unlimited suitability for everyday use thanks to the electric drive. This includes plug-in hybrids, purely electrically powered vehicles, and the new Audi e-tron, Audi's first all-electric production model. With the Audi e-tron, technology becomes the product series and model designation.

 

e-tron in everyday life.

The incredible acceleration. The almost silent drive. The great feeling of driving locally without CO₂ emissions. If you've ever experienced an electric car or driven electrically with a plug-in hybrid, you know how fascinating electric mobility is. However, e-tron not only means driving enjoyment thanks to the electric drive, but also unrestricted suitability for everyday use. Because a trouble-free everyday life with an electric car or plug-in hybrid first and foremost means problem-free charging.

 

Charging at home

Charging at home

The majority of electric cars and plug-in hybrids are charged at home, in your own garage or carport. No wonder, because the vehicle is safely parked here and can be left overnight to charge. The usable charging capacity depends not only on the vehicle and the charging equipment used, but also on the individual house infrastructure or house connection. Depending on the requirements, Audi offers powerful and compact charging systems for such cases. With a home check that you can order for a fee from your local Audi partner, a cooperation partner of AUDI AG will carry out a professional check of your electrical installation for charging an electric car. If the electrician recommends adjustments to your house electrical system, they will prepare an individual offer for you.

Public charging

Public charging

Whether it's the freedom to drive very long distances with an electric car or the flexibility to charge it as needed when you're taking a break anyway. Or if it is simply about having an alternative if you don't have the option of charging at home. Whatever is important to you personally – in all three cases, the public charging infrastructure is crucial. To ensure that you can fully enjoy the long-distance capability of your Audi e-tron vehicle, Audi is committed to building up a powerful network of charging stations along the main European transport axes. IONITY is a company that sets up and operates an express loading network of highways and motorways in 25 European countries. The high power charging (HPC) network with charging power of up to 350 KW enables electric mobility over long distances. The charging stops are automatically scheduled using the e-tron route planner. 30 minutes are enough to charge the Audi e-tron's high-voltage battery for a long-distance range – the Audi e-tron uses a charging power of up to 150 kW for this. In Europe, around 400 IONITY stations with an average of 6 charging points will be available by 2020.

Audi e-tron

Audi e-tron

Experience the first purely electric production model from Audi. The Audi e-tron turns Audi's well-known e-tron technology into a product series. The Audi e-tron is a luxury SUV that proves that uncompromising driving enjoyment and environmental awareness are not mutually exclusive. Coupled with a comprehensive charging offer for at home and on the road, the Audi e-tron is both sporty and suitable for everyday use. The Audi e-tron's large high-voltage battery stores up to 95 kWh of energy and thus forms the basis for its long range. Over long distances, for example when on holiday, customers can charge their Audi e-tron with up to 150 kW direct current (DC) at fast-charging terminals in the Ionity network – the first series-produced car ever to have this capability. This means that the Audi e-tron is ready for the next long-distance leg in less than half an hour. Alternatively, the electric SUV charges alternating current (AC) with up to 11 kW, optionally with 22 kW. Audi's own charging service provides e-tron customers with easy access to around 80 percent of all public charging stations in Europe. Whether AC or DC charging, whether 11 or 150 kW – a single card is enough to start charging. The Plug & Charge function, which is coming in 2019, will make the procedure even more convenient: the car authorises itself at the charging station and activates it.
