Audi is building a High Power Charging network to support its EV offensive as luxury car owners demand a premium sales and ownership experience. The company is developing special charging stations to woo its EV customers starting with a pilot project this year.
In the concept stage, Audi plans to have six charging outlets at its HPC stations. So, the premises should offer a quiet, relaxing environment to take a break. Image Source: Audi
Audi’s HPC stations will allow EV customers to reserve their charging spot in advance and comfortably relax in a nearby lounge area while their EV charges up. With up to 300 kW of charging output available, it would take a little longer than a coffee break to prepare the Audi electric car for the rest of the trip. The e-tron GT, for example, can accept charging at up to 270 kW, taking roughly 23 minutes to charge the car’s battery from 5 to 80%.
