The Audi e-tron 50 is a more affordable variant of Audi's e-tron 55 BEV SUV. Featuring the same refinement, aesthetics and build quality, but with a reduction in performance and range. Still, range is well over the 150 mile mark and its rapid charging still pulls 120kW, so there's good opportunity to take this SUV on longer journeys. Likewise 0-60 in less than 7 seconds means this remains a spritely SUV. And of course, more than £10k off the list price will mean those sacrifices make sense for many. This guide is based on the 50 quattro.

Charging Details

Charging time for an Audi e-tron

The table below shows the estimated time to charge your e-tron from empty to full. For rapid charging, we show the time to charge from 20% - 80%, as charging tends to slow outside this range to protect the battery.

CO2 emissions from UK grid electricity usage (EV Made Easy calculated)*48 gCO2/km

* This metric estimates the environmental impact of driving your electric vehicle based on how the electricity that powers your car is generated. We take the average carbon intensity across the UK grid measured throughout 2021 to calculate the expected grams of CO2 emitted per 1 km driven. The actual number will vary by region, when you charge (e.g. carbon intensity is usually lower overnight period) and whether your electricity comes from more renewable sources than the average.
