THE SPARK INSIDE ELECTRIC
Innovation is built into every Audi. The plug-in hybrid and fully electric cars are no exception. With sophisticated batteries, forward-thinking navigation systems that build charging into your journey and innovative driving systems for safety and control, an electrified Audi is a leap into smarter driving. Audi is fully committed to finding sustainable ways to strive forward and protect the planet and they are planning that 40% of all new vehicles will be electrified by 2025.
There are many pros to going electric. There are even a number of grants available from the UK government to make it cheaper and easier for you to make the switch. Audi has transformed itself from a classic premium manufacturer into a system provider for electromobility. There's a comprehensive range of charging options with intelligent solutions for at home and on the move so you can drive electrically without compromise.
As well as fully electric, Audi have a growing range of plug-in hybrids. Plug-in hybrid cars use both a combustion engine and an electric motor. To recharge the battery that drives the electric motor, they are plugged into a power supply when stationary. All offer the economy of an electric motor, backed up by the performance and reliability of an Audi combustion engine.
AUDI & OCTOPUS ENERGY
To help get you moving, Audi have partnered with Octopus Energy, offering electric customers a great value green energy solution. If you're an Audi customer who switches your home energy to Octopus, you'll receive up to £90 credit^.
Octopus Go is a smart tariff that provides you with super-cheap overnight electricity at 12p/kWh between 00:30am - 04:30am every night using nothing but 100% renewable, carbon-free electricity.
With electricity currently cheaper* than petrol or diesel, it could cost less than you think to keep your electric vehicle charged. With 95% of car journeys in the UK being less than 25 miles** most of your journeys can be covered by charging at home using a home wall box.
When carrying out longer journeys, there are now thousands of public charging stations scattered across the UK with new ones being added every day. Charging your car battery has never been simpler.
Once you have selected which charging unit you will be using, a home wall box or a public charging point, you will need to connect to your cars charging point
Best of both worlds
On plug-in hybrid cars, you will only have an AC port and on fully electric Audi cars, you will have both AC/DC ports. If the charging unit is a home wall box or AC charger that is untethered, you can use the charging cable (Type 2, Mode 3) that comes as standard. If you’re using a DC charging station, the cable will be attached to the unit, ready for you to use.
Once connected all that is left is to let the car charge. When the charging LED light flashes green it is working. If you lock the car, the charge will continue and the cable will remain locked to the car until you return. Charging is complete when the LED light stops flashing and remains green. Using your myAudi app on your smartphone, you can track the charging level.
A wall box is the best way to charge your electric Audi at home. A 7kW home wall box charges your car overnight, so it’s ready for the morning journey. The recommended wall box supplier, Pod Point, can help you choose a charging unit and even guide you through the process of applying for a grant. Audi recommend that you use a wall box to charge your electric Audi over a 3-pin socket. However, occasionally you may want to charge your car using a 3-pin socket, therefore your electric Audi also comes with a Compact Charging System^^, to help you connect
Charging at home can help you take advantage of cheaper night time electricity rates and can save you from making trips to public charging stations.

^To benefit from the free miles, you'll need to be a new or existing customer of Octopus Energy and have purchased a Audi electric vehicle. New customers to Octopus Energy who own an Audi electric vehicle (currently excluding Q8 e-tron models) and who set up an account for gas and/or electricity supply will be eligible for free miles in the form of £45 credit per fuel type on their energy account. To receive £90 credit, customers must switch both fuels to Octopus Energy. If only one account is switched, the customer will receive £45 credit. The credit shall be applied once the account is on supply and the first direct debit payment has been taken. To benefit from the Octopus Go tariff, the customer must have a SMETS2 smart meter or a SecureTM branded SMETS1 meter that they have agreed to let Octopus receive half-hourly consumption data from. Octopus Go is still a beta product and is subject to changes and tweaks as it is optimised and developed. For the Audi Q4 e-tron SUV 40 S line, at Octopus' Go Green tariff off-peak rate (12 p/kWh), £90 credit is equivalent to up to 3,600 miles. This is based on a usable battery capacity of 76.6 kWh and WLTP of 308 miles giving an efficiency average of 0.25 kWh/mile. Efficiency differs depending on multiple variables, such as driving conditions and vehicle configuration. Mileage calculations are based on rates from 21/07/2022. These rates are subject to change. If you qualify for more than one marketing incentive, we reserve the right to give you just one incentive.
*According to UK Power the average electricity cost is currently (January 2020) 14.37p/kWh
^^The compact charging system is currently unavailable with some of the TFSI e models however these models will still come with an alternative charging system to allow charging via a 3-pin plug. The AC charging cable (mode 3 type 2) is not affected and will also be supplied. The industrial charging cable is not included for these. For more information please speak to you local Sytner Audi centre.
‡From April 2022, the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) announced that the Electric Vehicle Homecharge scheme (EVHS) grant of £350 is being replaced by the EV charge point grant which is only available to homeowners who live in flats & consumers in rental accommodation (flats and single-use properties). Our partner Pod Point can advise if you are eligible and will support you through the grant application process. The Government grants are subject to full terms and conditions and eligibility may be revised or withdrawn at any time without prior notice. UK sales only (excludes Channel Islands and Isle of Man). See https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/ev-chargepoint-grant-for-flat-owner-occupiers-and-people-living-in-rented-properties-customer-guidance for further information.
Lithium-ion batteries, of the type used in most electric vehicles (including Audi electric vehicles) have a restricted lifespan. Battery capacity will reduce over time, with use and charging. Reduction in battery capacity will affect the performance of the vehicle, including the range achievable, and may impact resale value. New car performance figures (including battery capacity and range) may be provided for the purposes of comparison between vehicles. You should not rely on new car performance figures (including battery capacity and range), in relation to used vehicles with older batteries, as they will not reflect used vehicle performance in the real world.
