e-tron in everyday life.

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. 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.

More than 70,000 public charging points: e-tron Charging Service¹

The e-tron Charging Service¹ offers you uniform access to one of the largest public charging networks in Europe. By the beginning of 2019, you will be able to charge at well over 70,000 public charging points in 16 European countries. In addition, new target countries and charging points are constantly being added. With e-Roaming, cross-border charging with a single contract is possible in currently 16 countries, whereas the network coverage is constantly expanding. Uniform and transparent tariffs per country make it easy and worry-free to switch to electric mobility.

All public charging processes and invoices can be viewed easily and clearly via the myAudi portal and the myAudi app².

    The myAudi app²

    In addition to route planning and activation of the offered charging points, the myAudi app² provides information on all charging points in the network and allows you to start the charging process. You can always check the charge level of your Audi e-tron in the app.

    The charging card

    Audi e-tron customers can activate charging points with the e-tron Charging Service¹ charging card or the myAudi app. The identification and billing runs automatically in the background - no need to worry about anything.


Mode-3 charging cable

Audi provides a Mode-3 cable for AC charging stations without a fixed charging cable. This supports the AC charging capacity of the vehicle with 11 kW³ as standard.

Fast charging on long routes: The IONITY network

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 charging 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.

These services are offered by IONITY High Power Charging:

• Around 400 IONITY stations with an average of 6 charging points in 25 European countries should be available by 2020
• Comfortable access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
• Convenient billing via the e-tron Charging Service
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.
