Audi explains the e-tron’s low range, highlights safety and long-term durability

In the midst of dialogs on electric vehicle battery innovation and Tesla's lead in the EV fragment overall, Audi has given a few subtleties clarifying why its first all-electric SUV, the e-tron 55, just has an EPA-appraised scope of 204 miles for each charge in spite of its 95 kWh battery. As indicated by the German carmaker, a great deal of it has to do with security.

Audi noticed that the e-tron 55's battery is worked to deal with genuine maltreatment, and this is a key motivation behind why range must be yielded for protecting the pack's long haul solidness. This could be found in the e-tron 55's cooling framework, which independently screens and cools singular battery pack modules to keep them working at ideal temperatures. These forceful and excess cooling frameworks at last include weight and devour control. 

Aside from the e-tron's cooling frameworks, the vehicle is likewise outfitted with a powerful, well-ensured, overbuilt battery pack. Audi does not enable clients to get to the e-tron's full 95 kWh battery, walling 12% of the vehicle's pack and leaving drivers with a useable 83.6 kWh.

Regardless of having a pack that is just marginally bigger than the e-tron 55's 95 kWh battery, the Model X Long Range is equipped for enduring 325 miles for each charge. That is 38% more range for a battery that is just 5% greater.

A month ago alone, Audi propelled a 71 kWh, shorter-extend variant of the vehicle, named the e-tron 50, that is evaluated comparably to the Tesla Model 3 Performance. Addressing neighborhood news outlets, Audi Norway CEO Elin Sinervo expressed that the vehicle is an ideal counterpart for the nation's drivers, who just drive a normal of 30 km (18.6 miles) every day.
