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. Or simply because you like having an alternative when charging at home is not an option. Whatever is important to you personally – in all three cases, a public charging infrastructure is crucial.
¹ Access and network: The e-tron Charging Service is expected to be available in the last quarter of 2018. The number of accessible charging points is continuously growing.
The e-tron Charging Service can only be used by Audi e-tron customers (it requires a vehicle identification number). Europe-wide access: The e-tron Charging Service will be available in 16 European countries on market launch, a provision for further countries being at the planning stage. Prices of the e-tron Charging Service are country-specific. The number of charging points provided is country-specific and depends on the degree of development of the available infrastructure. There is no claim to be able to access a charging point everywhere in a country. Audi AG does not guarantee the operation and availability of the charging infrastructure. The location information about the number of charging points is updated regularly, there being no claim to completeness. The e-tron Charging Service customer card can only be used in the entire network 24 hours after card activation. Within the first 24 hours, the card can be used if necessary 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.
² Requires registration and conclusion of a main user contract with myAudi, as well as a main user nomination in the MMI vehicle. The verification and registration as main user ensures that you can use the vehicle control feature (for example, locking and unlocking the vehicle via app). Nominating the main user in the MMI vehicle, i.e. the link between your myAudi account and your Audi, is required in order to set the departure time in the app and transmit it to your Audi.
³ The charging capacity depends on the type of mains connection plug used, country-specific voltage, number of available phases of the power grid, and the customer-specific house installation. It can therefore be reduced on an individual basis. The power supply cable with an industrial plug and the operating unit of the charging system are matched to each other and allow a certain charging capacity. Changing the power supply cable later to another industrial plug is technically possible, but this may lead to a lower charging performance.
The specified fuel consumption and emission data have been determined according to the measurement procedures prescribed by law. Since 1st September 2017, certain new vehicles are already being type-approved according to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure for measuring fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Starting on September 1st 2018, the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) will be replaced by the WLTP in stages. Owing to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions measured according to the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those measured according to the NEDC. Therefore, the usage of CO2 emission values measured according to WLTP for vehicle taxation from 1st September 2018 on can cause changes in this regard as well. For further information on the differences between the WLTP and NEDC, please visit www.audi.de/wltp.
We are currently still required by law to state the NEDC figures. In the case of new vehicles which have been type-approved according to the WLTP, the NEDC figures are derived from the WLTP data. It is possible to specify the WLTP figures voluntarily in addition until such times as this is required by law. In cases where the NEDC figures are specified as value ranges, these do not refer to a particular individual vehicle and do not constitute part of the sales offering. They are intended exclusively as a means of comparison between different vehicle types. Additional equipment and accessories (e.g. add-on parts, different tyre formats, etc.) may change the relevant vehicle parameters, such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics, and, in conjunction with weather and traffic conditions and individual driving style, may affect fuel consumption, electrical power consumption, CO2 emissions and the performance figures for the vehicle. Further information on official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO₂ emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the guide “Information on the fuel consumption, CO₂ emissions and electricity consumption of new cars”, which is available free of charge at all sales dealerships and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Strasse 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen, Germany (www.dat.de).
