The Audi E-Tron GT Quattro, which costs 113,295 euros, comes to the consumption check.
In the meantime, production in the Böllinger Höfe is apparently running smoothly. In any case, the Quattro muscle of the test car, which has a maximum of 390 kilowatts, is not torn – the neck muscles of the occupants are more likely to hurt. Small side effects of the well-known immense thrust of these 800 volt cars. The e-tron GT is quickly explained. Two models are for sale, the 475 kW (boost) RS and the basic variant here, both with two permanently excited synchronous machines on the axles, both with 396 pouch cells in the underbody, which together have a net capacity of 83.7 kWh. ,
The Audi likes it more relaxed. The slightly better space, especially in the rear, also goes with its solid handling. The headroom and leg rest on a comfortable, softly padded bench are not to be underestimated in view of such a narrow passenger cell. It should also be mentioned here that the Audi drives up with an additional seat plus a standard 40:20:40 backrest division. And what about the fuel and maintenance costs?
Our test consumption
Audi specifies a WLTP consumption of 19.6 kWh per 100 kilometers for the E-Tron GT Quattro. He moves away from this value in everyday life. We have determined an average consumption of 28.5 kWh, which causes electricity costs of 15.11 euros per 100 kilometers. The Audi consumed 20.6 kWh on the eco lap, while it consumed 28.3 kWh on the commuter route. If the Audi was moved in a sporty manner, consumption rose to 37.2 kWh. In November 2022, auto motor und sport calculated a total average price per kWh of charging current for using an electric car in Germany: 52.96 (rounded 53) cents.
Monthly maintenance costs
If you drive as resource-efficiently as we do on our eco tour, you reduce the electricity costs for 100 kilometers to 10.92 euros. The rather violent gait resulted in a sum of 19.72 euros. The vehicle tax for the Audi costs 0 euros per year, the liability insurance is 439 euros. Partial and fully comprehensive insurance add up to 217 and 1,079 euros respectively. Monthly maintenance costs of 337 euros are paid by those who drive the Audi 15,000 kilometers a year. If the mileage is doubled, the sum increases to 619 euros. We leave out the loss in value in this calculation.
This is how it is tested
This is how auto motor und sport measures the power consumption: 70% commuter consumption: short distances of 21 km driven several times with 70% city, 30% overland share. 15% eco-consumption: economically driven driving profile using the maximum range with urban, rural and motorway sections. Motorway speed 130 km/h. 15% sports driver consumption: Constant driving with 80% Vmax (maximum 160 km/h) plus consumption information from a comparison drive, country road and motorway.
The monthly maintenance costs include maintenance, wear part costs and vehicle taxes assuming an annual mileage of 15,000 and 30,000 kilometers without loss of value. The basis for the calculation is the test consumption, a three-year holding period, no-claims class SF12 for liability and fully comprehensive insurance with Allianz including discounts for garage parkers and the restriction to certain drivers (not under 21). At Allianz, SF12 offers a discount rate of 34 percent for liability and 28 percent for comprehensive insurance. ,
In the auto motor und sport test consumption, the Audi E-Tron GT Quattro, which costs 113,295 euros, ends up with an average value of 28.5 kWh per 100 kilometers. This means that the electricity costs over this distance are 15.11 euros. The monthly maintenance costs are 337 euros (15,000 km annual mileage) or 619 euros (30,000 km annual mileage).
