The high-performance models of the Audi Q4 e-tron series will start in 2022 with shorter charging times. Variants with a large battery delivering 76.6 kWh of usable energy (82 kWh total) will benefit from this. i.e. the Audi Q4 40 e-tron, Audi Q4 45 e-tron quattro and Audi Q4 50 e-tron quattro models and their Sportback derivatives. Now they are charged with up to 135 kW. Charging times for the Q4 40 e-tron and Q4 Sportback 40 e-tron are ideally reduced from 5 percent to 80 percent to 29 minutes for the Q4 45 e-tron quattro and the Q4 50 e-tron quattro and Q4 Sportback models. 50 e-tron quattro up to 36 minutes.
These improvements come from optimized thermal and battery management software. All models have one thing in common: CO2-free local driving, long distances and, if desired, convenient charging with the Audi e-tron charging service at approximately 320,000 charging stations in 26 European countries.
