HPC charging with IONITY

IONITY is a company that is expanding and operating an express charging network of arterial roads and motorways in 24 European countries. Approximately 22.5 minutes¹⁴ are sufficient in order to charge the high-voltage battery of the Audi GT quattro¹⁵ ¹⁶ for a range that is suitable for long distances. The Audi e-tron GT quattro¹⁵ ¹⁶ uses a charging power of up to 270kW for this.

Audi Plug and Charge

Audi Plug & Charge

Audi offer a particularly convenient form of charging exclusively on the IONITY network known as “Plug and Charge”. This refers to the ability to easily and securely charge an EV without an RFID (radio frequency identification) card or even an app. The authentication process takes place automatically at compatible charging stations via encrypted communication as soon as the charging cable is connected to the vehicle. Then the charging process also starts. And finally, billing is handled automatically on the basis of a contract on file via your myAudi account. To use this system, drivers must have a PnC-capable model of the Audi e-tron series and an active Audi Charging Service contract. Users need to activate the feature in the myAudi app and in the MMI of their Audi.

Frequently asked questions

What is Audi charging?

Audi charging is a payment service for Audi customers for billing the electricity used for charging at public charging stations. You can charge your Audi anywhere in the supported charging network using an Audi charging card or the myAudi app.

How can I use Audi charging?

First, download the myAudi app from the App Store or Google Play to your mobile phone. After entering your personal data, you set up your vehicle in myAudi, using its chassis number, as well as the main user. Now you can select your appropriate rate in the "Audi charging" area and order your Audi charging card.
After pairing the myAudi app with your Audi charging card number, you can use the charging service.

What do AC and DC mean?

The shortcut AC stands for alternating current, and DC, for direct current. Both alternating current and direct current can be used to charge electric cars. Since only direct current can be stored in the high-voltage battery, the alternating current must first be converted into direct current. Electric vehicles therefore also require a so-called AC/DC converter (charger), which converts the alternating current (e.g., via a Schuko socket) into direct current.

What does HPC stand for?

Charging powers of 50 kW and more are referred to as fast charging. Not every electric vehicle supports high charging currents of this kind. To make electromobility more attractive, charging stations for up to 350kW are already available today. HPC charging* is usually found on motorways to enable short charging times and, consequently, shorter stops. This shortens your travel time considerably.

HPC charging is typically used between a charge level of 20% and 80% of the SOC**, as charging from 80% – 100% takes an above-average amount of time.


*HPC charging (high performance charging or high power changing) = charging power of 100 kW and above


**SOC (state of charge) = the state of charge of a high-voltage battery expressed as a percentage

How up to date is the data for the charging stations?

The information about charging stations in the myAudi app and in the vehicle navigation system is updated every day. Information about the availability of charging stations is also constantly updated but is subject to a small delay of a few minutes.
If your vehicle is in an underground car park, for example, the data can only be updated once the vehicle has established a connection online (shortly after leaving the underground car park).

Access and network: the number of accessible charging points is continually evolving. The e-tron Charging Service can only be used for electrified models of the Audi brand (a vehicle identification number is required). Europe-wide access: the e-tron Charging Service is available in 26 European countries, and an offer for further countries is planned. The number of charging points provided is continually being developed but is country-specific and depends on the degree of development of the available infrastructure. There is no entitlement to be able to access every charging point in a country. AUDI AG does not guarantee the operation, availability, charging performance or any other characteristics of the charging infrastructure. The location information about the number of charging points is updated regularly; no claim is made to its completeness. The e-tron Charging Service customer card can only be used across the network 24 hours after card activation. The card can potentially be used within the first 24 hours with local restrictions. Authentication via myAudi App (QR code on the charging point) requires an active radio and Internet connection. This authentication method is not available at all charging points. Prices within individual European countries are uniform but can differ from the price in Germany.

The Audi e-tron Charging Service is offered by Digital Charging Solutions GmbH (Mies-van-der-Rohe-Strasse 6, 80807 Munich, Germany).
15
The charging time of the battery may vary, depending on various factors, such as, e.g., the ambient temperature, the use of other, country-specific plugs, and the use of the preconditioning feature (e.g., remote-controlled air conditioning of the vehicle). When using household plugs, the charging power is limited by the e-tron charging system.

Audi e-tron GT: Combined power consumption in kWh/100km: 21.6–19.6; combined CO₂ emissions in g/km: 0. Information on fuel/power consumption and CO₂ emissions where ranges are given depends on the equipment selected for the vehicle.
17
The stated consumption and emission values were determined according to the legally prescribed measurement methods. On 1st January 2022, the WLTP test cycle completely replaced the NEDC test cycle, which means that no NEDC values are available for vehicles that have been newly type-approved after that date. The information does not refer to any, single vehicle and is not part of the offer but is used for comparison purposes only between different vehicle types. Auxiliary equipment and accessories (attachments, tyre format, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters, such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics, and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions and individual driving behaviour, can influence the fuel consumption, power consumption, CO2 emissions and driving performance of a vehicle. Because of the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO2 emission values measured according to the WLTP are in many cases higher than those measured according to the NEDC. This may result in corresponding changes in vehicle taxation as of 1st September 2018.

Further information on the differences between WLTP and NEDC can be found at www.audi.de/wltp. Further information on the official fuel consumption and official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the "Guide on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and electricity consumption of new passenger cars" (Leitfaden über den Kraftstoffverbrauch, die CO2-Emissionen und den Stromverbrauch neuer Personenkraftwagen), which is available for free at all sales outlets and at DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern, Germany, or at www.dat.de.
