About the e-tron SUVThe e-tron SUV is the most popular and has also been around the longest. It’s considered a luxury SUV and offers a clean and stylish look with powerful electric motors. The original e-tron has two electric motors, making it heavier than a typical gas-powered SUV. But Audi is releasing the e-tron S and e-tron Sportback, which have a sleeker style and will feature three electric motors for a more powerful vehicle.
About the e-tron GTThe e-tron GT is Audi’s smaller four-door sedan with a more compact design but the same stylish and attractive appearance. Despite the popularity and success of the e-tron SUV, Audi plans to make the GT the new icon of their brand as they transition into electric vehicles. The GT features a 522 horsepower electric engine that can get it to 60 miles per hour in less than four seconds. So for those that want something a little wilder, this will be the new standard.
About the e-tron Q4The Q4 e-tron is a more compact SUV. It has a lovely futuristic look that Audi believes will be the new standard for electric vehicles. It has a range of around 280 miles, making it one of the longest-running electric cars on the market, so you don’t need to stop and power up every 50 miles.
How To Charge Electric AudisAll electric Audi models, excluding the original e-tron, use the industry-standard J1172 plug type for level 2 charging. But the original model of the e-tron is capable of DC fast charging using the SAE Combined Charging Connector (CCS) plug.
Audi Has Big Plans for Electric in the FutureAudi plans to pivot completely toward electric vehicles by 2026. They plan to phase out gasoline and non-electric cars to move with the times and become a trusted name in the electric vehicles industry. They aren’t the only car brand that plans to do this, but they are planning it sooner than many other manufacturers. The sooner they make this change, the sooner they’ll become a competitor with Tesla.
Audi’s Charging Hub ConceptAudi opened its first charging hub in Nuremberg, Germany, at the end of 2021 to test the feasibility of these luxury charging stations in urban areas.
