Audi e-tron 55 quattro review, road test

    Can this premium luxury, all-electric Audi SUV meet the company’s ambitious 200 units per year sales target?

    As standard, the e-tron is available with two home charging options – the standard 15amp wall socket and an 11kW wall box provided by Audi. Additionally, you can specify your e-tron with higher-wattage, 22kW AC fast-charging capability unlocked from the factory, which would significantly reduce charging times. We tested the 11kW AC wall box charger, and the e-tron replenished 90 percent of its battery from 10-100 percent in around 8 hours.

    Missing engine frees up additional storage area under the bonnet.

    We also tested its charging at a 25kW Tata Power DC public fast charger, and a mere 15 minutes delivered about 8 percent of charge, enough for a range of about 25-30km, the cost being Rs 106. Average charging bills at home are likely to be in the region of Rs 900 per full charge (0-100 percent), taking into account a high electricity slab of Rs 10 per kWh.

    It’s possible to juice up its battery with an additional 20-25km of range in just 15 minutes, using a 25kWh DC fast charger.

    What do you think about the Maruti Jimny's price of Rs 12.74-15.05 lakh?

    Excellent: A full 1 lakh less than the 2-door Thar



    Decent: As a second car for off-road enthusiasts



    Terrible: Way too pricey for a compact Maruti SUV
