New software will increase the power reserve of the Audi e-tron 55 quattro SUV – DRIVE

We hope that the “four rings” will notify Russian customers of the software update, because e-tron (360 hp, 561 N • m) “starts” from 6 610 000 rubles, and e-tron S – from 8,450,000. A coupe is even more expensive: e-tron Sportback – from 6,815,000, e-tron S Sportback – from 8 655 000. Sedan is on the way e-tron GT.

Electric crossover owners Audi e-tron 55 quattroproduced by the plant Audi Brussels from mid-September 2018 to the end of November 2019, they can now install software for free, which will increase the cruising range by about 5% or 20 km. True, the numbers do not agree: instead of 456 km, the Germans speak of 441 km (+5). In addition, the lack of an update “by air” forces you to go to an Audi service center. On e-tron Sportback 55 quattro the promotion does not apply, although for “just” e-throne this is already the second increase in mileage through software: the first in November 2019 brought 25 km.

The new software also “optimizes” the front electric motor, which will “almost completely shut off” when not needed, and only activate in duet with the rear. The thermoregulation system now cools the battery more efficiently by reducing the volume in one of the four circuits.
