Just found out after plugging in, may all our road trips be a little sweeter!
It seems to me that charging it at EA at regular rates costs more or less the same as driving a gas car, given the price per kWh of energy delivered. Is that just my impression? 6$ for 40% battery that is 6$ for about 80 miles of range.I charged from 39% to 80% in less than 20 minutes, and saved a little under $6.
Yes, I think about the same as $3 per gallon of I remember correctly when I did the math.It seems to me that charging it at EA at regular rates costs more or less the same as driving a gas car, given the price per kWh of energy delivered.

There is still the brake fluid replacement and kind of mandatory maintenance cycles. I hope these do not become the "oil" replacement on eTron. There was a thread about it as well.not having to do oil changes or really any major maintenance on the e-tron (or any EV I chose), I would come out better.
I just used once to test whether it works. No surprises, but for now still able to do all trips within the range of home charger without any major issues. Also, waiting for the workplace to add chargers, which will be pretty nice since we might be getting cheap charging option when the car is parked for 8 hours straight.I ended up getting the car prior to getting getting a NEMA 14-50 receptacle installed and actually used the DC fast charge station twice while locating someone to install at a reasonable price.
Yeah, that was a bit odd considering ID.4 is getting 3 years with no cap.What is odd to me is Audi only giving 1000KWh free charging on the e-tron
I would take the option of having battery replacement option on eTron down the road. Car stays the same, just battery with newer tech becomes available and can be replacement. Wouldn't that be cool?The change over is going to cause some headaches as folks learn how to ‘fuel’ and maximize the life of their battery. I think we should have battery swap options available as well as increased charging points. The next year is going to be exciting.
yes, please - it would take away the issue of having plug fun when it just refuses to work. Even better, set up a post-paid account associated with your car, pull up, charge, and pay after that, just like gas station. It is all software at the end of the day, nothing more.Audi and EA need to sort out the plug and charge thing, so they can do payment via your online account, instead of needing the App.
