Re: Sub optimal charging performance

The vehicle is limited to charging on AC at 11 kW due to the inverter, so the vehicle will not charge higher than that. My experience of public AC PodPoint chargers is that they can vary quite significantly in terms of their charing power, regardless of the supposed rating. On your 3.5 kW charge - t...

Re: Hello - Newbie with couple of questions please!

My feedback: 1. No impact on the vehicle standing still, there is zero/minimal loss of range. 2. You'll likley get 240 miles on your motorway journeys from 100% when driving at 70 mph and with aircon on, with 20C ambient temperature outside. There are plenty of large charge points now popping up on ...

Re: How Heat Pump affects range

Cold weather will have a negative impact on range due to higher resistance in the high voltage battery, but also due to increased use of the heating system to maintain the cabin temperature. At climate temperatures between 0 - 5C, you'll probably see a 15 - 20% reduction in range (that's my experien...

Re: Wrong Badge?

I believe the 50 is only available as Quattro, whilst the 45 is only rear wheel drive. However; with the 2024 model year updates, the 50 is now replaced with a 55 and the 45 now also available in Quattro...

Re: Auto handbrake no longer comes on after new tyres

I think you mean the auto hold or hill-hold feature, which shows as a green (P) in the instrument display, when activated. This uses the hydraulic brakes to hold the vehicle, so once you come to a stand-still the vehicle maintains the brake pressure in the system. When you pull away, the brake press...

Re: Software Update

Just had my Q4 50 updated to 3812. No issues during the update and the added functionality appeared in the app automatically. For the Plug & charge, you need to be subscribed to Audi charging in the app, rather than the e-tron service agreement, and then you can set it up in the app too. I’ve no...

Re: Family road trips in the Q4

I did a 250 mile drive yesterday and could have managed that on a single charge from 100%, though I had two quick breaks and added 5 kWh each time. Without the charging, I would have got to my destination with approximately 5% SOC, instead of the 19%. It was 25C and I mostly had the air-con off and ...

Re: Family road trips in the Q4

I’ve got a Q4 50 Quattro and achieve maximum 3.2/3.3 m/kWh at motorway speeds of 70 mph in the summer with aircon on, on a good day. From 100% SOC, I can achieve max 250 miles - but that is getting close to 0% at destination. I usually aim to stop for a charge at 20-30% and plan three or four charge...
