First Look At Audi E-Tron Battery Pack On Display

APR 21 2018 BY MARK KANE 6

Audi recently presented the upcoming e-tron all-electric SUV in Berlin and hinted at some new details about charging options.

Audi e-tron prototype: Charging

According to the Roadshow’s coverage, the 95 kWh battery pack, as part of the vehicle structure, weighs some 750 kg, and enables the e-tron to go some 400 km (250 miles).

The German manufacturer equipped e-tron with a three-phase on-board charger (11 kW or 22 kW) and CCS Combo fast charging inlet with capability to accept 150 kW of power.

The battery cells are of course under the control of a sophisticated thermal management system.

Audi e-tron prototype spec:

  • 95 kWh battery and more than 400 km (248.5 mi) of WLTP range
  • up to 150 kW DC fast charging
  • three-phase on-board charger – 11 kW standard and 22 kW optional
  • charging inlets on both sides of the vehicles (right only AC)

I don’t think a Tesla coil is anywhere close to a bolt of lightening.

It’s going to take a lot more than a bolt of lightning to knock Tesla S off it’s Battery Range Topping PERCH. LOL

I desperately want to see Tesla make stable and consistent net profits for at least 4 quarters because without those profits, the Tesla battery range will only matter in the history books.

There is significant debt coming due for Tesla in 9-12 months as well as payables that are coming due.

Thats a very heavy battery.

But the 95 kWh are useable, total capacity is clearly above 100, rather 105 kWh. So probably the energy density is nearly at the level of the Tesla 100 pack. Questions is are:
How much power can it deliver? They talk about 400 kW, which is clearly below Teslas peak power, but maybe for a longer time?
How fast can it be charged? 150 kW peak theoretically, might result in 130 kW real peak, which is slightly better than Tesla. But how long can it retain max. charging speed and how much is it limited by low or high temperatures?
It might beat the Tesla X100D for charging speed (km/hour), but not the S100D due to the higher energy consumption of the crossover SUV body.
How long will these batteries last? Unknown for the time beeing.

Tesla 100kWh has almost 160Wh/kg. audi only 126Wh/kg according to this article.
