Better potency and longer range: technical refurbish for a Audi e-tron

* Information on fuel/power expenditure and CO2 emissions in ranges depending on a selected apparatus turn of a car.

** The common fuel expenditure values of all models named and accessible on a German marketplace can be found in a list supposing during a finish of this MediaInfo.


“Every fact counts” – that was a element that engineers operative on a Audi e-tron practical as they succeeded in fluctuating a operation nonetheless further. Future versions of a Audi e-tron 55 quattro** will be means to expostulate for adult to 436 kilometers (270.9 mi) on a full battery assign (WLTP cycle), that is an additional 25 kilometers (15.5 mi) over a prior capability. Thanks to a new form of circle brake, a developers have achieved serve reductions in what is famous as residual stop torque. This refers to rubbish that start as a outcome of a vicinity of a stop calipers to a stop discs. The expostulate complement has also turn some-more efficient. In normal driving, a engine on a back spindle provides thrust as standard. Now, interjection to a series of optimizations, a front electric engine is roughly wholly unattached and away from a electricity supply. Only when a motorist requests some-more appetite do both motors open into action. Running but appetite or drag losses, a vital advantage of a asynchronous engine concept, is even some-more effective as a result. In addition, a serviceable operation of a high-voltage battery has increased. The battery in a Audi e-tron 55 quattro** has a sum ability of 95 kWh and now gives business entrance to a net appetite figure of 86.5 kWh. All newly constructed models will advantage from a technical upgrade. There is no change to prices for a Audi e-tron 55 quattro**, that start during €80,900.

Highly fit thermal government

The engineers have also done improvements to cooling. The rarely stretchable thermal government system, that comprises 4 apart circuits, has been revised and now regulates a feverishness of a high-voltage components even some-more efficiently. Volume flows in a coolant circuit have been reduced, that means that a siphon uses reduction power. The worldly cooling complement continues to pledge fast DC charging, a prolonged battery life cycle and reproducible opening even underneath complicated loads. The customary feverishness siphon harnesses rubbish feverishness from a high-voltage battery to keep a interior warm. Depending on a outward temperature, that can boost a Audi e-tron’s operation by adult to 10 percent in patron operation.

Improved coasting recuperation

The innovative recuperation complement contributes to adult to 30 percent of altogether range. The Audi e-tron can redeem appetite in dual ways: by means of coasting recuperation when a motorist releases a accelerator, or by means of braking recuperation when a stop pedal is depressed. In both cases, a electric motors duty as generators and modify kinetic appetite into electrical energy. During deceleration actions of adult to 0.3 g – that relates to over 90 percent of such actions in bland pushing – a high-voltage battery is charged by a electric motors, that act as generators. The recuperation complement provides for non-static law of appetite recuperation between both electric motors, both in coasting mode and during braking. The grade of coasting recuperation can be set to any of 3 stages by means of paddles on a steering wheel, and there are now larger distinctions between a three, that allows a motorist a choice of a some-more conspicuous “one-pedal feeling.” When braking from 100 km/h (62.1 mph), a Audi e-tron can recuperate adult to 300 Nm (221.3 lb-ft) and 220 kW. That corresponds to some-more than 70 percent of a handling appetite input.

Sporty S line

The S line extraneous package emphasizes a sporty DNA of a Audi e-tron. The new apparatus chronicle is accessible now and facilities 20-inch wheels and competition atmosphere suspension. The some-more admirably contoured fender is flanked by bigger and some-more fluent atmosphere curtains, that urge atmosphere flow. They extend next a headlights, thereby formulating a energetic coming even from a distance. An S line button adorns a radiator grille, while a bright aluminum doorway sill trims underline an #S logo. The spoiler propitious as customary and a distinguished diffuser during a back minister to a superb aerodynamics of a e-tron Sportback. In contrariety to a simple model, a attachments on a S line extraneous are embellished in a extraneous physique color, including a circle arch trims, doorway sills, bumpers and extraneous mirrors. The discretionary black styling package also accentuates a area of a Singleframe, a side windows and a bumper. The extraneous counterpart housings are also accessible in black as an option.

Second outlay level

At marketplace launch of a e-tron Sportback, Audi will be charity a second engine variant. The e-tron 50 quattro**, accessible as an SUV or Sportback coupé, delivers 230 kW of appetite and 540 Nm (398.3 lb-ft) of torque (combined electric appetite expenditure in kWh/100 km (62.1 mi)*: 26.6 – 21.6 (WLTP); 24.3 – 21.4 (NEFZ); total CO2 emissions in g/km: 0). The indication can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 6.8 seconds and has a tip speed of 190 km/h (118.1 mph). The battery comprises 27 modules, any with twelve kaleidoscopic cells. The complement is roughly 120 kilograms (264.6 lb) lighter than a one in a sister indication and provides 71 kWh of sum appetite (64.7 kWh net). As a result, a Audi e-tron 50** can cover adult to 336 kilometers (208.8 mi) on a full assign in a WLTP cycle, while a Sportback chronicle can strech 347 kilometers (215.6 mi) interjection to a streamlined body. The Audi e-tron 50 quattro** is accessible now starting from €69,100, while prices for a Audi e-tron Sportback 50 quattro** start during €71,350. As a result, both models validate for a Umweltbonus funding offering in Germany.
