HERNDON, VA - September 12, 2018: Next Monday night, Audi will present the world premiere of the Audi e-tron, their first all-electric vehicle, in San Francisco, California. Full vehicle specifications and pricing for the U.S. market will be announced, along with other news on how Audi is building an EV ecosystem for U.S. customers to confidently go electric.


Leading the charge
Audi e-tron® will be engineered to charge with 150 kW DC high-speed public stations using the SAE Combined Charging System (CCS). These high-speed public chargers can provide an approximate 80% charge in about 30 minutes.

The Audi e-tron® will utilize a dedicated cooling system which helps keep the battery operating at an optimal temperature and ensure repeatable performance.

Having undergone extensive crash testing, the solid casing of the 95 kWh battery is designed to enhance security in the event of a collision.

Regeneration
The Audi e-tron boasts a one-of-a-kind regeneration system. Regeneration helps the e-tron recapture energy from 90% of braking applications and is designed to contribute up to 30% of the vehicle’s range. The e-tron has variable regeneration modes via the steering wheel paddles that allow the driver to optimize their range depending on where they’re driving and the efficiency they want from the vehicle.

Advanced driving dynamics

Quick acceleration provided by two electric motors creates nearly instantaneous torque — and an unparalleled driving experience. An electric motor is placed on each of the axles, distributing power more efficiently. The new electric quattro® all-wheel drive helps provide exceptional control and confidence in a variety of driving conditions.

Positioned low in the vehicle to enhance driving dynamics, the battery pack is designed to be compact and sleek.
