Audi Electric and Hybrid Charging and Range Explained

If you’re thinking about heading down the Audi electric vehicle route, you might be wondering – how long does it take to charge electric cars? So, with this in mind, let’s take a look at the charging process and capabilities of Audi’s e-tron range.

Audi e-tron – how does it charge?

The e-tron is Audi’s first ever electric vehicle boasting an electric motor at the front and the rear. These offer a combined power output of 300kW and exceptional acceleration speeds. The e-tron can be charged from home using a domestic socket or a specially fitted wall box for faster charging times. It’s also compatible with high-powered charging stations. Where available, the e-tron can be replenished at 150kW terminals that can recharge the battery to 80% within 30 minutes and 100% within 50 minutes.

Audi e-tron – what’s the range?

When fully charged, the e-tron has proven to be capable of travelling an impressive 248 miles under stringent test conditions.

Audi e-tron Sportback 55 – how does it charge?

The all-new Audi e-tron Sportback 55 is a head-turner in every way. With impressive regenerative braking, the Sportback is highly efficient with recouped energy powering up to 30% of the vehicle’s impressive 240-mile range on a full charge. When extra power is needed for longer trips, the e-tron Sportback 55 can be recharged at fast-charging stations via a 150kW outlet. This can top up the battery to 80% in under 30 minutes.

All fully electric vehicles from Audi must be plugged in, but with regenerative braking allowing you to travel further without stopping, the all-new e-tron range is practical and convenient for everyday driving.
