- The Audi e-tron 55** charges with maximum charging capacity of up to 150 kW over a large portion of the charging procedure
- The real charging duration depends largely on the ideal charging curve
- Unique charging curve: short charging duration even beyond 80%
- The Audi e-tron** is fully charged at a fast charging terminal in around 45 minutes
The charging process is central to the everyday usability of an electric car. The shorter the stop required for charging the higher the customer’s satisfaction. Drivers of a fully electric Audi model thus benefit from high charging speeds because the charging capacity of up to 150 kW is available for a large portion of the charging procedure. This enables sophisticated thermal management of the lithium-ion battery. In order to assess the everyday usability of an electric car, customers should take not just the nominal maximum charging capacity but also the charging speed into account.
