Audi is making its presence known at the 2021 IAA in Munich and it’s ready to show the world what its electric vehicles can do. At Audi’s “House of Progress”, located at the dedicated pavilion on Wittelsbacherplatz, you’ll see three different Audi e-tron models available to test drive; the Audi RS e-tron GT, Audi Q4 e-tron, and the Q4 e-tron Sportback.
Obviously, it’s the Audi RS e-tron GT that will draw the largest crowd. After all, who doesn’t want to drive a 637 horsepower electric super sedan? It looks stunning, too, which will get a lot of EV doubters to come take a look. However, realistic EV customers will also be interested in the Q4 siblings. Both of which are far more affordable and practical than the RS e-tron GT, which wears a sticker price started deep into six figures. All three cars should get some love from attendees.
Additionally, attendees will be able to sample Audi’s fast charging “Power Cube”. Thanks to the use of second-life Audi e-tron batteries (batteries that were previously used in e-tron vehicles and have been repurposed), Audi is offering six charging ports; two at 150 kW and four at 75 kW. So even cars like the RS e-tron GT or Porsche Taycan, which can rapid-charge at 150 kW, will be able to get a quick boost.
It’s also a preview of Audi’s Charging Service, which provides 250,000 charging stations in 26 countries, at a rate of 31 cents per kWh, while using a single charge card. Audi also offers customized charging stations and wall boxes for at-home charging.
The test drive station at Audi’s House of Progress is only one of the displays the brand has in Munich. There will be concept cars, a couple of “Spheres”, and other interesting visions for the future on display, so stay tuned as we bring you more.
