Audi India Has Two Exciting Updates
Both concern the EV space.
Finding a vacant and working charger for your EV, especially during a long journey, can be tricky. That’s primarily because the user has to download and trust the information provided by third-party applications. For Audi EV users in India, that no longer has to be the case.
Audi India has introduced a new feature on its official application – myAudiConnect – called ‘Charge my Audi’. Available exclusively for all e-tron customers, the newly added feature gives access to multiple EV charging partners: Aargo EV Smart, Charge Zone, Relux Electric, LionCharge and Zeon Charging. All are powered by the Numocity Technologies eMSP roaming solution. And here’s the kicker – Audi e-tron customers can use any of the chargers listed across the network free of cost till August 2023.
Besides providing the convenience of an expansive EV charging infrastructure, ‘Charge my Audi’ also helps users to plan their journeys efficiently. How? The feature knows where the charging stations are along the way. Moreover, it also identifies the availability of a charger at those stations. Users can also start/stop the charging functions and pay for the consumed units via the payment gateway via the app. Audi India says that over 750 charge points are currently available to e-tron owners. The number will expand “exponentially” in the coming weeks.
Audi India has the Audi e-tron 50, e-tron 55, e-tron Sportback 55, e-tron GT and RS e-tron GT under its EV portfolio. By the end of the year, the Audi Q8 e-tron will be introduced in the country. That’s the second official update from the brand. And as it has done in other markets, the newcomer will replace both e-tron variants (50 and 55) and the e-tron Sportback 55.
The Q8 e-tron debuted in SUV and Sportback forms last year. Audi has devised three variants for both body styles – 50, 55 and SQ8. India is likely to get the former two to begin with.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in Green
