Audi Plug & Charge, charging made easy

by admin

ROME – Surprise: the models of the Audi e-tron range produced from 1 December 2021 will be equipped with the Plug & Charge function, a service that makes the “refueling” of energy in the Ionity network even faster. The charging stations will automatically recognize the cars and start charging without the need for any RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) card or app. Authentication will take place via encrypted communication when connecting the charging cable and billing will also be automated.

The cars of the Ingolstadt company that will benefit from this new function are the Audi e-tron and Audi e-tron Sportback, in the 55 quattro and S configurations, produced from 1 December and with an active e-tron Charging Service contract. Users simply need to activate the PnC option via the myAudi app or MMI.

In the meantime, Ionity, the public network High Power Charging, will invest 700 million euros in the expansion of the network. By 2025, the joint venture present in 24 European countries in which the Volkswagen Group participates with the Porsche and Audi brands, will increase the 350 kW charging points from the current 1500 units to around 7000. Not only that. The charging points will no longer be located exclusively on the motorway, but also in large cities and along the main road arteries.

“The electrification of the Audi range is proceeding at full speed. An epochal change, accompanied by no less extraordinary opportunities ”, explains Markus Duesmann, CEO of Audi AG. “A properly rooted fast charging infrastructure is crucial for the success of electric mobility. Today more than ever it is not the only product that is decisive, but rather the entire ecosystem. The Ionity offensive will make a decisive contribution to electric mobility, making it much more attractive and usable “. (fp)
