Audi’s Innovative Quick Charging Hub: Chill In A Swanky Lounge Or Test Drive an E-Tron
Audi recently unveiled its very own charging lounge concept. It is currently opening the first of them to the public at a very visible location, i.e at the Nuremberg Exhibition Center in Germany.
Audi is testing this new charging model in action for the first time with this pilot location. The fast-charging station features reservable high-power charging bays, along with a lounge area with a vending machine that will serve customers as they put some juice back into their EVs.

What Was The Audi RS3 Thinking Before Challenging The Tesla Model 3 To A Drag Race?
The Audi RS3 was recently updated and it is a fantastic proposition overall. Audi even gave it a little more torque this time around. But, it is still not in the leagues of EVs when it comes to straight-line races. The folks at Carwow pit the Audi RS3 against a Tesla Model 3 that was nothing more than a glorified squash. The Model 3 is in a league of its own, and in this race, it proved the same by obliterating the RS3.
Check out the Facelifted E-Tron SUV Playing in the Snow
Following a fresh batch of Q6 E-Tron spy shots and the first spy shots of the Q8 E-Tron’s facelift, we now have a new set of the facelifted E-Tron doing some winter testing. Much like the last prototype we spotted, this one is wearing. A similar bottom-only camouflage, indicating changes to the front end, side skirts, and lower rear end.
As was the case with the last prototype, the front grille on this prototype features a honeycomb mesh, so we can say with little doubt that this is a production feature. It will be a very nice change from the vertical and horizontal slats of the pre-facelift model. We can’t say much else about it due to the extensive coverage, but it looks as if we will see further changes to the front fascia, and there’s a good chance there will be some minor changes to the front genders as well. The rear lights are still concealed, so you can expect some more change there, too. If you want to know more, be sure to check out the last round of Q8 E-Tron spy shots and learn what we know about the “next-gen” model.
The Audi Q6 E-Tron Was Recently Spied Winter Testing With A Camo Quilt In Sweden
Q8 E-Tron Confirmed as Facelifted E-Tron Prototype Reveals Minor Changes
Audi is not backing down from electrification. Just recently we learned that the RS6 Avant E-Tron should launch in 2023 and not even a week after that, the company launched the China-only Q5 E-Tron, basically a rebadged Volkswagen ID.6X. And, while all these new models are cool, we can’t forget about existing models, like the original E-Tron – Audi’s largest electric SUV to date. That’s why the company is hard at work to refresh it for 2022 – a move that will keep it fresh until its successor arrives. That successor, we just learned will be coming in 2026.
The Q5 E-Tron Is Just a Rebadged VW ID.6X
At the beginning of November 2021, I brought you spy shots of a mysterious Audi EV prototype that could have been the Q6 E-Tron or a special, China-only model that would slots somewhere between the Q6 and Q4 E-Tron. As it turns out, it was the China-only Q5 E-Tron, and now it has been fully revealed. As you’d expect it’s based largely on the Audi Concept Shanghai that was reveled back in April 2021, a car that led us to believe that China would be getting something like a fancier ID.6 with an Audi badge.
Check Out This New Audi Q5 E-Tron Prototype
The Audi Q6 E-Tron will probably be revealed in 2022, so when these spy shots landed in my inbox this morning, I thought for sure that’s what I was looking at. However, sources are new telling us that this is a Chinese-market special, and it should even be a seven-seater.
Audi Can Make Your E-Tron Go A Little Further, But There’s A Catch
Audi e-Tron owners, 2019-20 model years, receive a free software update that will add about 12 miles or 20 kilometers to its total range. The update also optimized the thermal management along with electrical losses in the motor. It is after three years that the company rolled out an update to improve the mileage efficiency of its first-ever EV, and for starters, the overall mileage was not that great if compared to the likes of the Jaguar I-Pace, and the Tesla Model Y.
Latest Spy Shots of the 2023 Audi Q6 E-Tron Prototype Reveal A Very Modern Look

Audi Grandsphere Concept - A Luxurious EV That’s A ’Private Jet For The Roads’
Audi’s onslaught in the EV segment continues. Less than a month after debuting the convertible two-seater Skysphere concept, the automaker has now unveiled another concept; this time a four-door concept called the Grandsphere. The concept comes with interesting specs like a dual motor setup, 711 horses and 708 pound-feet of torque, 0-62 mph in just over four seconds, etc. The stretched model which Audi calls “private jet for the roads” is surprisingly even longer than some Ford F-150 models! Seems like an interesting product, doesn’t it?

2021 Audi Skysphere Concept - A Transformer That Can Change Shape On The Fly
Concept cars come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The Skysphere Concept, which Audi has now digitally unveiled, is unique in more ways than one. It is a massive autonomous open two-seater GT car, that can drive itself.
However, the biggest highlight of this long electric roadster with a soft-top is its ability to change its dimensions on the fly by 9.8 inches. Yes, you heard that right, at the push of a button, the 16-feet long GT extends its length and gets even longer to 17-feet.
Can An R8 Beat The Most Powerful Audi, The RS e-Tron GT, In Straight-Line Races?
Audi is arguably the most proactive company that’s adopting electrification. The company has many all-electric vehicles in its portfolio already, and one of them is the RS e-Tron GT. The RS e-Tron GT is the most powerful Audi vehicle that you can buy today. The folks at Carwow pit this beast against a car that can be considered its fuel-powered alter-ego, the Audi R8. Do you think the Audi R8 can defeat the RS e-Tron GT in a series of races?
Audi Might Have a Big Surprise At the 2022 Geneva Motor Show
Audi showed up to the Shanghai Auto Show with the A6 E-Tron Concept, a car that seemed more like a futuristic A8 than an A6, and one that had production written all over it. It could also become the brand’s first electric wagon, but we’ll leave that discussion for another time. Until now, we’ve heard nothing about when we’d see a production version, but a new report says that A6 E-Tron is slated for production very soon.
Audi Is Befuddled About What a Sports Car Really Is
Following Audi’s last teaser for the Grand Sphere concept – a flagship sedan with RS6-like proportions and potentially a hint at the next-gen A8, Audi has shown off another teaser. This time, we’re looking at the Sky Sphere which is, appropriately, a roofless car that also features sporty proportions. However, there’s something about this specific concept that doesn’t make a lot of sense.
2021 Audi Grand Sphere Concept - A New Direction for Audi and The Next-Gen A8
Here’s a look at Audi’s Grand Sphere Concept, which will usher in the next-gen of the flagship luxury sedan from Ingolstadt.

Does The Audi Q7 V-12 Have Enough Oomph To Beat The Torquey-Audi E-Tron?
We’ve been seeing Teslas extirpate internal combustion-engined for the longest time. With the Model S Plaid, it has gotten as brutal as it can get. EVs have surely set the bar high and cars sprinting from 0 to 60 mph in over six seconds are considered slow, but that doesn’t necessarily mean all EVs are performance machines. The Audi e-Tron Sportback, is one of them. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not slow by any means, but it’s not quick like most of the Teslas either.
So, to have a fairly competitive race, the folks at Carwow pit the Audi e-Tron Sportback 55 against an Audi Q7 V-12 for a series of drag and rolling races. Can a mighty V-12 beat two electric motors?
