For customers taking delivery of the 2022 Audi e-tron GT, the company is offering access to several available charging solutions, including three years of complimentary DC fast charging sessions through Electrify America after vehicle purchase and enrollment activated through the myAudi app, and customized in-home charging solutions with a concierge customer experience through sustainable solutions provider Qmerit.
Electrify America plans to have about 800 charging stations with approximately 3,500 chargers by the end of 2021.
For customers new to electrification who may not yet have an in-home charger, Audi is delivering two turn-key installation solutions for in-home charging with sustainable infrastructure provider Qmerit. Option 1, a NEMA 14-50 power outlet upgrade, is installed for use with the included 9.6 kW AC capsule charger (Level 2, 240-volt/40 amps), which comes standard with the vehicle purchase. This charger includes plugs that can utilize both a standard 120-volt household outlet (1.2 kW) and a faster-speed 240-volt NEMA 14-50 outlet (9.6 kW). Option 2, for customers looking for a more tailored home charging experience, Electrify America’s HomeStation is available for purchase. Electrify America’s HomeStation is Wi-Fi-capable and offers 9.6 kW charging power.
Expected to go on sale this summer, the e-tron GT and RS e-tron GT are manufactured in the Böllinger Höfe plant near Neckarsulm, Germany. Its production is certified as net CO2-neutral, the company says. By the end of 2021, Audi says it aims to have the largest offering of electric vehicles of any luxury automaker in the U.S. Including plug-in hybrid vehicles, Audi plans to electrify approximately 30% of its U.S. model lineup by 2025 and become net CO2-neutral globally by 2050.
