How does an electric car work in the Nordic cold? A Norwegian family who has driven the Audi e-tron since 2019 shares their experiences. Alongside explanations from Audi’s own technicians, this will give you the best insight into how the Audi e-tron performs in a cold climate and on icy roads.
After its debut with four stage victories at the Dakar Rally in January, the Audi RS Q e-tron is facing its next challenge: From March 6 to 10, the innovative desert prototype with electric drivetrain, a high-voltage battery and the highly efficient energy converter will contest the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge. Team Audi Sport is fielding a car with factory drivers Stéphane Peterhansel/Edouard Boulanger in the second round of the FIA World Rally-Raid Championship.
Like the entire Volkswagen Group, Audi is pursuing the vision of carbon-neutral mobility and wants to achieve net climate neutrality by 2050. The focus is on vehicles with electric batteries. In addition, Audi is increasing the environmental sustainability of its combustion engines: The company has now approved many of its current six-cylinder diesel engines for use with the renewable fuel HVO (hydrotreated vegetable oil).
The Ferry Porsche Foundation, German cosmetics manufacturer the BABOR BEAUTY GROUP, green startup everwave, and the Audi Environmental Foundation are starting a cleanup mission together. Around Earth Day (April 22), the quartet will deploy everwave’s highly efficient garbage collection boat CollectiX. Equipped with a conveyor belt and intelligent sensors, the boat will gather information about the amount, type, and composition of garbage. Long term solutions and prevention concepts for the region can be developed on that basis. In all, the boat will spend five weeks in Romania collecting plastic and other waste from the Danube and its tributaries.
Let’s talk recuperation.
How does the Audi e-tron ensure that you have enough energy and range on your journey? The Audi e-tron models recuperate energy while coasting or braking, recovering up to 265kW of power (for the Audi e-tron GT) for greater range.
You can adjust your recuperation manually or automatically, giving you full control of your car’s regenerative capabilities. In other words, you will always have sufficient energy when you embark on your journey.
