Bjorn Nyland returned to the Audi e-tron testing for a little bit to check the range during summer conditions, and guess what? It's still electron guzzler.
The result at a constant speed of 90 km/h (56 mph) is just 12% better than in the winter - 370 km (230 miles) compared to 330 km (205 miles) previously.
Summer range test results:
- at a constant speed of 90 km/h (56 mph):
- Summer range: 370 km (230 miles)
- Energy consumption: 225 Wh/km (362 Wh/mi)
- at a constant speed of 120 km/h (75 mph):
- Summer range: 270 km (168 miles)
- Energy consumption: 308 Wh/km (496 Wh/mi)
Winter range test results at a constant speed of 90 km/h (56 mph):
- Winter range: 330 km (205 miles)
- Energy consumption: 253 Wh/km (407 Wh/mile)
It's not known why the estimated ≈83 kWh estimated available battery capacity (out of 95 kWh total) doesn't give the e-tron more range. Maybe it's because of not efficient enough electric motors of power electronics.
Anyways, the Audi e-tron is still one of the better electric cars on the market - second after the Tesla brand, that Bjorn Nyland would buy - which alone sounds like a strong recommendation.
