The charging idea of Audi is very different from the Superchargers at Tesla. With those chargers you just sit comfortably in your car while you recharge the battery for a few minutes. At Audi, the experience becomes more complete because the docking stations would have a real lounge space to make users feel at home.
with extra batteries
The Audi charging area is given a cube shape with six charging points around it. Those who want to charge their Audi could book in advance to be sure of their place. The maximum charging speed is 300kWh, slightly more than the 270 kWh that the e-tron GT can handle, for example. To provide sufficient energy, Audi uses batteries that store electricity, with a maximum of 2.45 mWh.
According to Audi, the need for that kind of experience at charging stations is growing as more and more people will drive an electric car. The range is also steadily expanding at Audi itself, by 2025 the brand wants to have a good 20 different electric models in its display window. The lounge charging solution from Audi will be tested on a small scale from the summer, in collaboration with a number of partners.
