Charged for the checkered flag
We're unleashing the performance potential of electric vehicles. Audi e-tron® is built on technology that's inspired by Formula E. Now, we're taking this proven racing pedigree to the streets.
Legendary quattro® all‑wheel drive
"For nearly 40 years Audi has been successfully active in motorsport to test and continue to develop new technologies for production. Now, we’re doing this in Formula E as well. Our first single-seater is a precursor in the field of electric mobility that we’ll be ushering in with the Audi e-tron® in 2018."

Range to go the distance
The powertrain and battery act as a powerful muscle at the heart of Audi e-tron® vehicles. Together, they help keep the vehicle moving, and help determine the range. Lithium-ion battery technology has evolved over time giving vehicles the capability to travel longer distances — future e-tron® series models will be designed to have longer running capabilities to accommodate routine trips.
Audi e-tron® technology is designed to help simplify your life with convenient home charging solutions so you can be more prepared for your daily commute. On the road, an expansive fast-charging network can help keep your vehicle charged.
Intelligence that drives you
You can personalize each ride from the palm of your hand with the help of our Audi mobile apps, and access a growing suite of smart services to amplify your driving experience. It’s time to redefine how you connect with your Audi.

The e-tron® concept vehicles represent a bold new world. Learn more about range, performance and more.
A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) combines the range of an internal combustion engine with the immediate acceleration and efficiency of a rechargeable electric motor/battery. PHEVs like the A3 Sportback e-tron® can run entirely on gas if the onboard battery is depleted. Battery electric vehicles (BEV), on the other hand, utilize an electric motor combined with a larger battery for immediate torque, long-range capability and potentially lower operating costs. Electric vehicles run entirely on electric power that’s stored in a battery, which is typically recharged at home overnight from a 220-volt outlet.
Most electric vehicle owners charge at home overnight from a 220-volt outlet, helping to reduce the need to charge elsewhere.
For charging on the go, there are currently 17,000 public charging stations and over 50,000 public charging outlets in the U.S. Electrify America plans on adding to the existing public chargers to establish a network that includes over 650 new locations for easy charging wherever you are and nearly 300 highway sites across the country for longer trips.

Depending on the model, hardware and charging equipment, the time it takes to charge a hybrid or a fully electric vehicle will vary.
The current Audi A3 Sportback e-tron® battery can be charged in about 2.5 hours with the 240-volt charging unit that’s standard with the vehicle.
With the Audi e-tron® quattro concept, the Combined Charging System (CCS) is engineered to enable charging with DC or AC electrical current. A full charge with DC electrical current at a charging station rated at 150 kW will take roughly 30 minutes.
The currently available 2018 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron® offers a total EPA estimated range of 400 miles as a combination gas-electric hybrid.
