Audi has introduced a standard technical update for its electric product line. This combines optimized drive-system hardware with software adjustments to improve efficiency. The result is an extra 25km of range in the e-tron SUV.
The engineers have also made improvements to cooling. The flexible thermal management system, which comprises four separate circuits, has been revised and now regulates the temperature of the high-voltage components even more efficiently.
Volume flows in the coolant circuit have been reduced, which means the pump uses less power. The sophisticated cooling system continues to guarantee rapid DC charging, a long battery life and reproducible performance even under heavy loads.
The standard heat pump harnesses waste heat from the high-voltage battery to keep the interior warm. Depending on the outside temperature, that can boost the Audi e-tron’s range by up to 10% in customer operation.
