Audi E-tron to charge faster than Tesla Supercharger network

Post by Rob » Mon Apr 23, 2018 3:39 pm

Audi has revealed the production version of its E-tron electric SUV will be powered by a two-motor powertrain, 95kWh lithium-ion battery and capable of 150kWh DC fast-charging. The latter is claimed as a world first and is more rapid than the Tesla Supercharger network.

Releasing more technical details ahead of its launch in August, the E-tron was shown to the press at a Siemens heavy-duty electrical engineering test centre in Berlin, where the car was subjected to a symbolic 500kV test to ‘spark’ the car into life.

The exact output of each E-tron motor, however, remains a closely guarded secret, but it's expected to be a maximum of 160bhp with overboost — equivalent to around 120kW — to give a total peak output of around 320bhp or 240kW.
