Audi and Electrify America have pledged to have 500 of these fast-charging facilities either under construction or completed in 40 states by July 2019. E-tron customers will receive 1,000 kWh of free charging at the Electrify America sites over four years of ownership. For residential charging, a standard 9.6 kW AC capsule charger is provided, and can deliver a full charge overnight utilizing a standard 120-volt household outlet. A partnership with Amazon Home Services will allow Audi e-tron buyers to set up a fully-digital experience for in-home electric vehicle charging installations. Using the myAudi app, customers can plan, control and monitor the charging and pre- heating/cooling of their electric SUV. The app also displays charging and driving data. Amazon's Alexa has been fully integrated into the MMI system, and allows the driver/passengers to access many of the same features and services in their e-tron as they can in their home or through other Alexa-enabled devices. Outfitted with all the comfort and high-tech accoutrements befitting an Audi, the driver-oriented cabin boasts a central Audi virtual cockpit with a slim, visually free-standing display, two MMI touch response displays, a standard Bang & Olufsen Premium Sound System, and a phone box for inductive smartphone charging. Customers are able to choose from a host of comfort, driving and technology amenity packages for a fully customized driving experience. Base price for the Premium Plus trim level e-tron is $75,795. Customers can now configure and reserve their e-tron with a fully refundable $1,000 reservation fee in advance of delivery in mid- 2019. For more information visit audiusa.com. sl slmag.net 59
