This is the second blog in a series of blogs highlighting the Electric Vehicles (EV) currently in production.
Beginning in 2021, there has been a large influx of new EV models introductions. How quickly will companies adopt EVs in commercial fleets? That depends on the fleet and how they use the vehicles (range, energy consumption, charging needs, climate, etc.). Additional considerations that impact the speed of EV adoption included infrastructure to support EVs (power and utilities, charging station availability), government support (incentives and regulation), and of course consumers/fleets who are willing to purchase. Currently only 2% of the vehicles on the road are EVs.
Manufacturers are introducing enough vehicles over the coming 18 months to more than double the current product selection.
Up next… Audi e-tron!
Model: Q4 e-tron

Here is a video overview:
EPA range and charging
The 2022 e-tron has a driving range of 222 miles, while the Sportback has a slightly lower rage at 218 miles. It will take about nine hours to fully charge the e-tron using a 240-volt household power outlet or a Level 2 public charging station. A public Level 3 charger will charge to 80% in 30 minutes. The battery is covered with an eight-year/100,000 mile warranty.
