Audi confirms “over 400 kilometers” expected range for e-tron Quattro SUV
In a recent press release, German automaker Audi has confirmed that the expected range of its all-electric e-tron Quattro SUV on the WLTP driving cycle will be “over 400 kilometers (248.5 miles)” on a single charge.
The all-electric e-tron Quattro SUV is schedule to hit the production line at Audi’s carbon-neutral facility in Brussels in the next few months. According to Audi, the deliveries of the vehicle in the European markets will begin by “the end of 2018.”
Audi’s recent confirmation of the range of the e-tron Quattro SUV, equipped with a 95 kWh battery pack, is notably ‘more realistic’ than the “310 miles” of range which has been advertised by the automaker since 2015, when the e-tron Quattro prototype was first unveiled. At that time, Audi was still using the unreliable NEDC standard for the range.
In addition to confirming the expected range of e-tron Quattro SUV, Audi also reaffirmed the 150 kW charging capacity of the vehicle, which will go into production in coincidence with the projected expansion of the Ionity charging network -- supporting 150 kW up to 350 kW -- in Europe over the next couple of years.
Moreover, in the press release, Audi also said that it offers “various solutions for charging at home,” and shared details about the e-tron Quattro SUV’s home charging capacity.
