Some Audi e-tron models are getting an over-the-air (OTA) update that further develops the all-electric SUV’s driving reach. The changed programming was first presented in 2019 with the introduction of the e-tron Sportback in worldwide business sectors, however the update is currently being carried out to different models of the standard SUV, delivered for the 2019 and 2020 model years.
The update opens more reach in a couple of ways. First off, it opens more usable limit in the lithium-particle battery pack.
Albeit the e-tron 55 quattro has a 95kWh battery pack, a portion of that limit can’t be gotten to by the driver to protect the existence of the battery pack.
The update implies less of the lithium-particle battery is cordoned off, opening up more reach. The update changes how the dynamic battery cooling framework functions for more noteworthy effectiveness. It additionally implies the front engine can be turned off totally now, making the vehicle more proficient at a journey or under light choke inputs.
Audi says the e-tron 55 quattro has acquired a reach augmentation of up to 20km – an expansion of approximately five percent. The update empowers the model’s battery to convey higher net usable force, which means the vehicle would now be able to profit from 86kWh of its 95kWh battery when driving.
Audi additionally guarantees the update advances the control of the electric engine at the front, detaching it in circumstances where the vehicle requires less force. The cooling framework – which Audi says is the reason for quick charging, long battery life and steady EV driving execution – has likewise been improved by bringing down volume stream rates in the coolant circuit.
The standard e-tron in India is accessible in two powertrain choices – the 50 quattro, with a 71kWh battery pack, and the 55 quattro, which has a bigger, 95kWh battery pack. Until further notice, the models have a guaranteed scope of 264-379km and 359-484km, individually, according to Europe’s WLTP test methodology.
