Redefining the Status Quo
Welcome to the new age of driving. One that is a marriage of technology and tradition, reshaping the way we move — for the better. Our goal is to lead the charge in emission-free driving. Today we’re starting that journey by reimagining what it means for a vehicle to be electrified. Audi plans to release 20 new electric cars, along with 10 new plug-in hybrids by 2025.
Incentives for Zero-Emission Vehicles
The Government of Canada has launched the Incentives for Zero-Emission Vehicles (iZEV) Program to encourage purchase of vehicles with low or zero emissions. Under this program, incentives up to $5000 are available and the savings are passed on to the consumers. That means your Audi is now more affordable to own, starting with the purchase.

Audi TFSI e models
View Audi's lineup of plug-in hybrid models, combining an electric motor with a traditional engine, this lineup is poised to deliver a driving experience unlike any other.
Level 1 Charging
Offers a maximum of 1.2 kW charging power and will charge an empty e-tron battery in approximately 95 hours.
Available in most homes as the standard outlet.
Level 2 Charging
Offers a maximum of 9.6 kW charging power and will charge an empty e-tron battery in approximately 10 hours. Charging will take even less time when the battery is already partly full, which is many times the case.
Needs to be installed by a certified technician.
Level 3 Charging
A special feature of the Audi e-tron is its ability to accept up to 150 kW of charging power when connected to a suitable Level 3 DC Fast Charger.
Canada is home to over 7,000 public charging points where the e-tron can be topped off while on the go. To see an interactive map of charging sites, visit www.chargehub.com

Frequently Asked Questions
- Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV): These vehicles use electric motors as their only source of power, storing energy in a battery, and getting recharged using an electrical outlet at home or by plugging into a puble charging station. BEVs rely exclusively on the battery and electric motors to operate. Current BEVs in the Audi lineup include the Audi e-tron, e-tron Sportback, and the upcoming e-tron GT.
Level 1: Uses 120 Volts. This is the slowest form of charging and is suited more for emergencies than for regular use. On the e-tron 55 quattro, it takes approximately 100 hours² to recharge the battery using a Level 1 charger.
Level 2: Uses 240 Volts. This is the most common form of charging. The e-tron 55 quattro comes standard with a charging unit capable of either 120 or 240 Volts. On a Level 2 charger at 9.6 kW, the battery recharge time takes approximately 10 hours.² Using the Audi charging system requires a NEMA 14-50 receptacle to be installed by a certified electrician at your place of residence or wherever you plan to charge. The e-tron 55 quattro charging system requires a dedicated circuit capable of supporting a 40-amp continuous load. In order to ensure your home is equipped, we suggest that those living in condominiums, townhouses or other residential type buildings contact their housing/condo boards to ensure: a) that an EV charger can be installed at your location, and b) that there is enough power to supply and fulfill your charging requirements.
Level 3: Also known as DC Fast Charging, this Level is typically only found at public charging stations. It uses much higher voltage and amperage to deliver more charging power directly to the vehicle’s battery. With the Audi e-tron 55 quattro, charging time to 80% is roughly 30 minutes when using a 150 kW Level 3 charger.²
In order to prepare your home for an electric vehicle, contact your Audi Oakville, who can help you locate a certified electrician to assess your home.
Please note that the e-tron 55 quattro charging system requires a dedicated electric circuit capable of supporting a 40-amp continuous load. The necessary charging equipment required for the e-tron 55 quattro is included with the vehicle. This equipment includes: the charging unit that connects the vehicle to the electric power source (Audi Charging System compact), two interchangeable power supply cables for Level 1 (NEMA 5-15 standard home electric receptacle) and Level 2 (NEMA 14-50 240V receptacle which will need to be installed by a certified electrician), as well as a bracket for mounting the charging system conveniently on the wall. All this equipment is included as standard on the Audi e-tron 55 quattro.
1. Please note that the range of the vehicle, similar to that of a combustion engine, relies on a number of factors such as driving behavior, accessories used, temperature, terrain, driving route, and charging frequency.
2. Estimated charging times are provided as a reference only. Actual charging times will vary based on battery state of charge, driving behaviour, battery condition, current, resistance, and ambient temperature, available voltage and charging frequency.
