What electric models do Audi offer?

Audi has a fantastic range of fully electric and plug-in hybrid models.
Our fully electric cars are called 'e-tron'. Unlike petrol or diesel-powered engines, fully electric cars use electric motors powered by the electricity in their battery resulting in zero tailpipe emissions. The battery can then be re-charged in a number of convenient ways.
Our plug-in hybrid cars are called 'TFSI e', they use both a combustion engine and an electric motor. To recharge the electric battery, they are plugged into a power supply when stationary, in the same way that electric cars are. Drivers can choose between three driving modes; purely electric, purely combustion, or an automatic combination of both.

Where can I learn about Audi electric vehicles?

You can learn about Audi electric vehicles on our Discover Audi Electric area. Here you'll find details on all EV topics including range, charging, ways to buy, useful tools and videos. You can also visit individual model pages and configurator to find out the finer details of each car.

Is an EV suitable for me?

A good first question and the answer is probably yes! As you learn more about Audi electric, you’ll see there are some things to consider before you commit to switching to an EV. For example, you’ll have to think about how and where you’ll charge it and the kinds of journeys you do on a regular basis, but most people can make it work. We are heading to an electric future and the products and UK charging infrastructure are evolving at pace.

What do I need to look for when choosing one?

Choosing an EV is fundamentally no different to choosing any other vehicle. You need to consider practicality, reliability, your budget and running costs as well as things like specification, colour and power.
Charging is of course the one big difference. Think about how far you usually drive in a day/week/month, and then whether you can charge at home or work, or will need to rely on the public charging infrastructure. There’s no right or wrong to this – you just need to understand the implications for your lifestyle.

Will it be reliable?

Yes of course! Like any Audi car, it’s designed to be reliable and trustworthy. Of course we’d always recommend that you visit your local Audi Centre, which has specially trained high voltage technicians to keep your car in great working order.
