2021 Audi E-Tron Base Model and Sportback Now Charges Faster than Before

2021 Audi E-Tron Sportback

The line of electric cars is best utilized when they are capable of covering longer distances and can charge faster.

The 2021 Audi E-Tron has been improved and it is applicable for both the base model as well as the Sportback edition. The car is now able to charge much faster which saves you time and enables users to quickly cover long distances.

The electric SUV is already a crowd favorite considering the fact that there are very few cars that offer the level of comfort, features and fully electric capabilities. While most major automobile brands are going to launch their version fully electric SUVs in the near future, Audi is already way ahead of its competition. The on-board charger found in the newest variants has been increased from 11 kW to 22 kW, making them more powerful and faster to charge. Buyers planning to purchase the new 55 series models will get these features.

Audi Showcases the E-tron Quattro: the Large Electric SUV Concept Car Due for the Market in 2018

Audi showcased the E-tron Quattro, the large electric sports utility vehicle (SUV) concept car that is expected to be due in the market in 2018. The new E-tron Quattro, to be powered by a 95 kWH battery pack, is expected to deliver a driving range of 310 miles.

The new concept electric SUV is designed with a low roofline and appears more like a wagon rather than an SUV. However, this aerodynamic design is intended to optimize driving range from the power supplied by the electric system of the vehicle.

The E-tron Quattro features a 95 kWH battery which promises a driving range of 310 miles. The battery pack is fitted under the passenger seats deliberately, in an effort to lower the center of gravity. The battery set supplies power to three different motors, one each for the two rear wheels and one for the front wheels.

This alignment enables the drive system to put extra torque on the outside wheel, thereby pushing the back end and counteracting understeer. This arrangement enhances the overall handling of the vehicle. The 4-wheel-steering accommodates for high-speed turns and low-speed maneuverability while an air suspension enhances driving comfort.

The Audi E-tron Quattro battery pack takes 50 minutes to charge from zero to full when charged at a Level 3 DC charging station. The company is also looking at wireless charging options wherein the vehicle could drive on its own to a wireless charging pad.

The sharper line design of the E-tron Quattro reflects a combination of last year’s Prologue concept and Audi Q7. The geometric grille, narrow-roof-tailed cabin and LED headlights have been taken from Prologue.

The E-tron Quattro concept SUV’s retracting door handles and replacement of rear view mirrors with camera pods on the front fenders that transfer images at the back onto a monitor inside the cabin are features that enhance the aerodynamics of the new vehicle. Additionally, these features, combined with the low-roof cabin bring the coefficient of drag to 0.25 which is better than any other SUV in the market.

The concept car features an LCD on the instrument cluster, an idea borrowed from the company’s Virtual Cockpit driver interface. An LCD on the dashboard allows passengers view entertainment options while a smaller monitor at the console’s base enables the driver to set functions such as climate controls.

Audi Q6 e-Tron All Electric SUV with 310 Mile Range to Debut at Frankfurt Motor Show 2015

Audi is determined to produce a better electric SUV than Tesla and rival the Tesla Model S.

Teaser pictures of the new, Audi Q6 e-tron have surfaced on the internet and the electric SUV that can offer up to 500 kilometers of running on a single full charge of the battery is set to debut on September 15, during the Frankfurt Moto Show.

Audi has just released a teaser photo of the new, all-electric SUV vehicle and it is already dubbed as the “Tesla killer”. One thing to note though, the Audi Q6 e-tron will be able to seat four people inside, while the Model S can offer seating for 7 people. The Q6 e-tron, however, has its own strengths and advantages.

The main advantage of the Q6 is its sporty, luxurious look and the mileage of more than 300 miles with a single charge.

For the design of the SUV, Audi took an approach “start from scratch”. The Q6 e-tron is not a modification of an existing SUV, but rather a design from the ground up. The underbody of the Q6 is very similar to the Tesla Model S, an underbody for a more aerodynamic look. The concept SUV uses three electric motors for driving, one powering the front wheels and two powering the rear wheels. Those three motors allow the Q6 e-tron to run on all-wheel drive system.

Sketches from the new design show a resemblance to the Q5 and Q7 models, but apart from the size, the Q6 e-tron is nothing like them. The only similarity is that the new model will sit somewhere in between in size. But the design is a departure from the current designs and is influenced heavily by the new head of design, Marc Lichte. The Q6 e-tron has sleeker profile than its bigger and smaller brother, for starters.

The biggest challenge for Audi, according to CEO Rupert Stadler, is to produce a fuel efficient car with zero-emission. In the past, SUVs were not seen as fuel efficient options, but Stadler believes that the new lightweight technology and the electric drive system show that SUVs can be quite efficient. The Audi Q6 e-tron is expected sometimes in 2018, which will conclude the development peek for Audi in the charging department.
