Going Electric

From public charging to tips to maximise range, here you’ll find the information you need to take the next step in your electric journey.

Powering fleets for the road
ahead

Here at Audi, we want to make switching to an electric car as simple as it is driving one. With our expertise and wide range of fully electric and hybrid vehicles, we help you make the transition to electric as seamless as possible. You can also access our online tools and take advantage of all the charging solutions that you need through our partner Pod Point.

The longterm benefits of going electric

Over an electric vehicle’s lifetime, the total cost of ownership is significantly lower than a petrol or diesel car. As well as lower National Insurance contributions and reduced Benefit-in-Kind, electricity costs less per mile than petrol or diesel equivalents. Switching to electric cuts CO2 emissions too, minimising the impact on the environment.

 

Popular hybrid & electric cars

From our plug-in hybrid models including the self-assured A3 Sportback TFSI e and the instantly recognisable Q5 TFSI e, to our thrilling fully electric e-tron models, our range brings together spirited sportiness and everyday practicality.

    Growing charging infrastructure

    The public charging infrastructure is growing rapidly. And with our reliable e-tron Charging Service, you already have access to almost 75% of the UK's public charging points with one card², including some of the UK's leading charging operators like BP Pulse and Pod Point. It’s a network designed to deliver fast and convenient charging, wherever you go.

    Charging

    Charging cars overnight at home, or when parked at work for several hours, is usually cheaper and more convenient. However, if you need to recharge quickly, or need a ‘top-up’ during long journeys, using a rapid charge point can provide an 80% charge in around 30 minutes³.

    Electric range and how it behaves

    As with any car, driving efficiency can vary depending on driving style, temperature, and other factors. Performance-assisting features like regenerative braking which redirects unused energy back to the battery and pre-conditioning can improve efficiency and range.

The financial advantages of electric

Switching to Audi electric cuts CO2 emissions, reduces total cost of ownership and ensures an electrifying experience for company car drivers.

    Emissions - charge exemptions

    More and more towns and cities are introducing clean air zones (CAZs) and low emission zones (LEZs), each with their own charges. Electric vehicles are currently exempt from charges, which means drivers regularly entering these zones can make significant savings.

    Electrified powertrains

    A plug-in hybrid uses both the electric motor and internal combustion engine. For shorter journeys, most of your day-to-day driving can be done on electric power which reduces tailpipe emissions. Additionally a fully electric car produces zero tailpipe emissions, which helps fleets to reduce carbon footprint. Drivers also pay lower benefit in kind.

Range dependent on trim and optional equipment. All vehicles are tested according to WLTP technical procedures. Figures shown are official test values for comparability purposes; only compare fuel consumption, CO2 and electric range figures with other vehicles tested to the same technical procedures. These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including but not limited to factory fitted options, accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, road and traffic conditions, individual driving styles, vehicle load, vehicle condition, use of systems like climate control (and, for battery electric vehicles, the starting charge, age and conditions of the battery). Figures for battery electric vehicles were obtained after the battery had been fully charged. Battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. Zero emissions while driving. Figures quoted are subject to change due to ongoing approvals/changes and figures may include options not available in the UK. Please consult your local Audi Centre for further information. Data correct in October 2021.

Estimate calculation based on eCS charge points coverage of 19,485 (data correct as of 16th December 2021) and total applicable UK charge points coverage of 26,940 (November 2021 Zap map data). Data based on Type 2 and CCS devices only, excludes private and dealership charging stations (with the exception of Porsche) and non-compatible charging stations including other OEMS.

Based on an Audi e-tron 55 using an Ionity charging point. Actual charging times will vary depending on various factors, including the selected vehicle (and battery option, if available), the type of charger used, the level of charge in the battery, the age type, condition and temperature of the charger and the battery, the power supply, ambient temperature at the point of use and other environmental factors. Charging times will also be affected by the charging curve (for example, once charging passes 80%, charging will slow to protect the battery's longevity) and will be longer if battery temperature activates safeguarding technology. Direct Current (DC) timings based on a 5 to 80% charge using a ultra-rapid DC public charge station at the vehicle’s maximum charging capability.

New customers to Octopus Energy who purchase an Audi electric vehicle and who set up an account for gas and/or electricity and sign up via the referral link provided by Audi UK will be eligible for free miles in the form of £45 credit per fuel type on their energy account. To receive £90 credit, customers must switch both fuels (gas and electricity) to Octopus Energy. If only one account is switched, the customer will receive £45 credit. The credit shall be applied once the account is on supply and the first direct debit payment has been taken. If you qualify for more than one marketing incentive, Octopus reserves the right to give you just one incentive. To benefit from the Octopus Go tariff, the customer must have a SMETS2 smart meter or a SecureTM branded SMETS1 meter that they have agreed to let Octopus receive half-hourly consumption data from. There are some instances where a smart meter installation is not possible, for example remote areas with poor mobile signal. Where smart meter installation is not possible, customers can sign up to an Octopus standard tariff and still receive the £45 credit per fuel type. For the Q4 e-tron SUV 40 S line, at Octopus' Go tariff off-peak rate (7.5 p/kWh), £90 credit is equivalent to an estimated figure of up to 4,500 miles. This is based on a usable battery capacity of 76.6 kWh and official WLTP test range of 308 miles, giving an efficiency average of 0.25 kWh/mile. Efficiency differs depending on multiple variables, such as driving style, driving conditions and vehicle configuration. Figures (including official range, efficiency average and estimated mileage equivalent to the credit value) may not reflect the real life driving results you achieve. If the vehicle is not charged during the off-peak window £90 credit is equivalent to up to approximately 1100 miles based on the peak electricity price of 30.73/kWh. Existing Octopus Energy customers who joined Octopus Energy directly and purchase an electric vehicle from Audi can still avail this offer and should contact Octopus Energy directly on evoffers@octopus.energy to request a switch and/or add credit to their account. Existing customers must not have claimed other Octopus joining rewards (and must not have joined via a refer a friend scheme or another Octopus partner) to be eligible.
