Charging with 50 kw chargers is very slow,  We desperately need more 150 kW chargers to make this process less painful.  The range of just around 200 miles is about 100 miles short of where they need to be as an effortlessly functional road trip vehicle. But in the end I’ll deal with it and make it work because I love the car, the look, the comfort, and the features.

 

Our take:

Audi’s flagship EV – etron – has a range of 220 miles per charge.  It is capable of charging at 150 kw (can charge 80% in 30 mins.  source).  As charging networks improve and faster DC chargers  (150 kw+ ) become more common, charging during trips will become quicker.
