Charging Audi e-tron turned out to be more expensive than diesel Q7

Specialists from the UK calculated the costs of motorists to operate two popular models with different power plants.

In the UK, the local edition of Which Car? decided to find out how much the owners of the electric crossover Audi e-tron cost its operation. For clarity of the experiment, they compared the amount received with those costs that the owners of the diesel Audi Q7 50 TDI have. It turned out that every new mile when replenishing the energy of the Audi e-tron at a fast charging station (like the Ionity network) is more expensive than a crossover on diesel. To recharge an electric car from 10 to 80 percent, its owner will have to part with the amount of 45.89 pounds. One mile in this case costs the car owner almost 34 pence. The Audi Q7 mile is estimated to be much cheaper – 22 pence.

 At the same time, British experts note that charging the Audi e-tron can be done much more inexpensively if you use less powerful charging stations. In this case, the charging time of the car increases.

 So, charging from the terminal for 150 kilowatts will cost a little more than 23 pounds, and from a 22-kilowatt one – only 6.32 pounds. Recall that in Europe, electrocross from Audi can be purchased in two versions – 50 quattro and 55 quattro. The power plant capacity is 313 and 360 hp. respectively, and the battery capacity is 71 and 95 kWh. The “younger” e-tron 50 quattro will travel 299 km without recharging, and the “senior” – 411 km.
