Baden-Württemberg’s Minister-President Kretschmann exam drives an Audi e-tron

The Audi e-tron is a initial quite electric large-scale prolongation indication from a Ingolstadt-based reward vehicle manufacturer and has captivated sold courtesy from a state supervision of Baden-Württemberg. The E-SUV for a Minister-President comes from Audi’s CO₂-neutral prolongation trickery in Brussels. It is a “myth-black” Audi e-tron modernized 55 quattro (electricity expenditure total in kWh/100 km*: 26.2-22.6 (WLTP); 24.6-23.7 (NEDC); CO₂ emissions total in g/km: 0). The Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Transport will also shortly take over dual Audi e-tron models for exam drives.

“I am really gratified that a e-tron is now a initial quite battery-electric Audi to go into array prolongation and that we can now exam expostulate it. This vehicle is an glorious instance of tolerable mobility,” pronounced Minister-President Kretschmann. “The state supervision will continue to lead by instance in low-emission mobility. There is good approach in a state administration for vehicles with choice expostulate systems. We are support this record also with a state’s electric mobility initiative, that was resolutely determined in a bloc agreement. The aim is to make a tellurian mutation of a automotive attention a success in dual respects: Success for a meridian and health protection, as good as success for companies and employees. And each vehicle that drives with low or even 0 emissions helps to grasp a goals of a Strategy Dialogue of a Baden-Württemberg Automotive Industry.”

“At Audi, a Audi e-tron represents a new epoch of foundation and digital services. We are gay that a Minister-President of Baden-Württemberg is eager about a Audi e-tron,” pronounced Audi CEO Bram Schot. “In Sep final year, Minister-President Kretschmann was means to take a tighten demeanour during a E-SUV during a universe premiere in San Francisco, and now he will exam expostulate it,” pronounced Schot.

With a swift of 50 Audi e-tron convey vehicles, a association was already means to denote a unsentimental capabilities of a E-SUV in a Swiss plateau during a World Economic Forum in Davos this January. The initial deliveries to European business will start in March; some-more than 20,000 business worldwide have already done allege reservations for a model.

Schot: “We intend to electrify all a indication ranges and make all a plants CO₂-neutral by 2030.” By 2025, Audi will offer twelve cars with all-electric expostulate in a many critical markets worldwide, and will beget about one third of a section sales with electrified models. Production of a Audi e-tron Sportback will start during a Brussels plant before a finish of this year. In 2020, a Audi e-tron GT will follow from a Böllinger Höfe bureau during a Audi site in Neckarsulm. The association also intends to use fuel-cell record in a future. The competences for a Group are total during a Audi site in Neckarsulm, Baden-Württemberg.

The sustainability of a Audi e-tron has a origins already during a prolongation site in Brussels, a world’s initial large-scale prolongation in a reward shred approved as CO₂-neutral. The Audi plant in Belgium has achieved this pioneering feat with 3 measures – immature electricity, ecological feverishness supply and meridian remuneration projects.

Essential for a Audi e-tron is a altogether judgment of tolerable production, locally CO₂-neutral pushing and arguable charging. A 95-kWh high-voltage battery is a basement for a operation of some-more than 400 kilometers in a WLTP pushing cycle. This is done probable above all by a innovative appetite recuperation system, that contributes adult to 30 percent to a car’s range. The worldly aerodynamics are also wilful for a high potency of a Audi e-tron. One of a technical highlights is a choice of practical extraneous mirrors – a universe creation for a series-produced automobile.

The dual electric motors of a luxury-class SUV broach adult to 300 kW and, in multiple with a electric all-wheel drive, safeguard best opening on any terrain. On prolonged journeys, on holiday for example, business can assign a e-tron with adult to 150 kW approach stream (DC) during fast-charging stations – a initial series-produced vehicle to offer this option. Coupled with a finish charging offer for a home, business can expostulate quite electrically but carrying to make any compromises.
