Audi models & EV chargers

Audi electric vehicle lineup

As a member of the Volkswagen Group, Audi represents the pinnacle of German engineering, combining refined luxury and thrilling performance. Since the brand’s introduction to the racing world in the early 1970s, Audi has long been a perennial powerhouse. In 2009, Audi began a new chapter in its nearly century-long history with the formation of the “e-tron” brand. A number of hybrid-electric vehicles and concept cars soon followed, leading to the release of Audi’s first-ever fully electric vehicle, also bearing the e-tron name, in 2019. 

 

Here is a rundown of every available Audi electric vehicle, and discover the best Audi electric car charger options for each model.

 


 
 

Audi battery electric models

Audi Q8 e-tron

The Audi Q8 e-tron is the first fully electric vehicle offering from Audi, and an early example of an expanding EV portfolio offered by the Volkswagen Group. Combining cutting edge engineering and sophisticated styling, the e-tron characterizes the careful design that Audi is known for in a groundbreaking new package. The Audi e-tron features industry-leading DC fast charging capabilities that enable a 30 minute charging time to get to 80% capacity.

 

For the 2024 model year, the e-tron will be renamed and placed under the Q8 lineup as the Q8 e-tron. With an increased battery of 106 kWh providing an estimated 300+ miles of range, the Q8 e-tron is being brought into 2024 as Audi’s flagship electric SUV.

Audi e-tron GT

The Audi e-tron GT is the brand’s first EV sedan sharing its platform and 800-volt architecture with its cousin, the Porsche Taycan. Similar to the Porsche, the e-tron gains the J1 platform’s 800-volt architecture allowing for 270 kW of DC fast charging, 93.4 kWh lithium-ion battery and Audi’s signature Quattro all-wheel drive.  

Audi Q4 e-tron

The Audi Q4 e-tron occupies the compact crossover SUV position of Audi’s lineup. Sharing its MEB-based platform with the less-luxurious VW ID.4, it brings over the 82 kWh battery and 150 kW DC fast charging speeds to a more elevated experience. The Q4 e-tron is EV luxury at a more obtainable price point.

Charging Audi electric vehicles

In contrast to the smaller battery of the Audi A3 e-tron PHEV, the all-electric e-tron sports a 95 kWh lithium-ion battery with an EPA-rated driving range of 226 miles. The e-tron can charge at a rate up to 9.6 kW from Level 2 charger and 150 kW from a DC fast charger, making it one of the fastest charging EVs on the market. Both models use the industry-standard J1172 plug type for Level 2 charging. Of Audi’s offerings, only the Audi e-tron supports DC fast charging, using the SAE Combined Charging Connector (CCS) plug.

 

With a versatile line of home charging solutions, there is a JuiceBox for every electric Audi model. The JuiceBox 32 can comfortably accommodate the smaller battery of the Audi A3 plug-in hybrid and max out the vehicle’s charge rate. With the e-tron’s large battery, it is important to have a powerful Level 2 charging station at home for all of your residential charging needs. Using a high performance Level 2 EV charger like the powerful JuiceBox 48, the e-tron has a charging time of around eight hours to charge fully. By comparison, it would take over 60 hours of continuous charging to charge the battery-powered vehicle with a Level 1 EV charging cable.

Audi plug-in hybrid models

Audi A3 e-tron PHEV

First unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show, the Audi A3 e-tron plug-in hybrid was brought to market a year later, representing Audi’s first plug-in model. With an 8.8 kWh battery pack, the A3 e-tron delivers an all-electric range of 31 miles. The A3 e-tron’s onboard charger can charge at a maximum rate of 3.6 kW. The A3 e-tron saw commercial success and is widely recognized as an impressive first step by Audi into the world of electric vehicles.

Audi Q5 55 TFSI e

Since 2020, Audi’s bread-and-butter compact crossover SUV has been electrified. The Audi Q5 55 TFSI e was powered through 2022 with a 14.1 kWh battery and 20 mile of electric only range, increasing to 17.9 kWh and 23 miles respectively starting in 2023. This vehicle has since become the most popular plug-in hybrid in the Audi range.
