Volkswagen presented the seventh concept car of the ID. family. The ID. SPACE VIZZION follows the ID, ID. CROZZ, ID. BUZZ, ID. VIZZION, ID. BUGGY and ID. ROOMZZ. Like all the ID. models, the new ID. SPACE VIZZION will be fully electric. The concept car is based on the modular electric drive matrix (MEB). The 82 kWh gross battery capacity allows distances of up to 590 kilometres (WLTP) or 300 miles (EPA). With a system output of up to 250 kW (4MOTION), the ID. SPACE VIZZION accelerates to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds (5.0 seconds to 60 mph).
The Audi e-tron Sportback in the WLTP cycle has a range of up to 446 kilometers (277.1 mi) on a single battery charge. Each axle is fitted with an asynchronous electric motor that is fed with three-phase current by the power electronics. The battery system of the Audi e-tron Sportback 55 quattro stores 95 kWh of gross energy (86.5 kWh net) and operates at a rated voltage of 396 volts. It is fitted as a wide flat block beneath the passenger cell, to which it is bolted at 35 points. The battery system is exceptionally rigid and crash-proof. These are arranged on two levels, as a long lower “floor” with 31 modules and a short upper floor with five modules.
The Audi e-tron Sportback 55 quattro can charge with direct current (DC) at up to 150 kW at fast-charging stations. In just under half an hour, the battery reaches 80 percent of its capacity. The e-tron Sportback 50 quattro can charge at up to 120 kW and achieves an identical charge status in the same time.
Audi also offers a range of solutions for charging in the garage at home, depending on the capacity of the domestic power supply. The standard compact charging system is suitable for a simple 230-volt connection and for a 400-volt three-phase outlet with an output of up to 11 kW.
