Hi,

I'll be taking delivery of my e-tron in a couple of weeks and was wondering what charging networks are included in the Audi Charging Network. I'm told I get £150 of free charging and a 12 month subscription to the "Transit" tariff.

I've been reading up on the e-tron charging services website and it only mentions IONITY and Source London specifically:


Does it include networks like BP Chargemaster / Polar, Shell / New Motion, PodPoint, ChargeYouCar etc.?

I'm currently a PHEV driver so don't have experience of rapid charging yet.

Cheers,

Tony

As far as I am aware you can only use the IONITY network within the Audi Network. Currently they are few and far between. Even though as we all get the £150 free credit and 12 months free membership I have yet to use my card.

The nearest IONITY charge point to me is in an area I never travel. Its a nice idea and can see it being useful, but because they are limited I have only set up my account, when I set it up I also set the activation date for December 2020. This was the latest future date It would allow me to select before it becomes active. I was mindful that there are future plans for sites and thought it a good idea to put my membership on hold until it is further established.

I have reached out to Audi for confirmation and the correct information to see if we can use other networks with our Audi Charge cards, It would be good to be able to use the credit we have on other networks.

I have spoken to Audi UK they sent me this link: You may have read it already:


The basis of it are the following are included within the Audi Network.

498



Limited right now for my travel areas but may suit many.

Thanks - that's really helpful. There's quite a few here that will appear along my road trips according to "A Better Route Planner" and Zap Map. I charge at home and work so won't be making use of ones in my county unless I'm almost empty and returning from a long journey. Reading the article implies that even PodPoint will work despite the fact that it doesn't make use of RFID, and the MyAudi app should trigger the charge. We'll see... My e-tron is due in the next couple of weeks. I've got a first tentative mini-road trip of about 250 miles being planned to ease myself into BEVs.

No problem
Be sure to post up some pics on the forum!
All the best for the 250m drive. Be sure to have a read through some posts on the forum if you have not already about the regen braking and the different drive modes.
Obviously the AC is a killer. All it takes is good planning and a fast charger if needed on route and you will be fine.
If you have time it would be a really interesting read to see how you get on, so if you can (be bothered that is!) try and document the journey. Lots of owners, new buyers and those investigating would benefit from your experience. Most posts are based on opinion and your trip will be genuine.
A 250 mile trip is a great way to get going,

Thanks - I'll definitely feedback here on my first experience. I'm a bit of a stats geek as well as an EV advocate (although just a PHEV driver at the moment) so anything I can do to help I'll make sure I'll do. I'll also post some pictures.
