    Misha, do you have range anxiety with EV due to the way you drive? Or charging station in Germany are frequent enough to not worry about that? I personally think battery technology still can be improve, so are charging station infrastructure... but I agree all current EVs have its' limitation, they're more of a city-car.

    So, you made about every beginner's mistake there is to be made when using the etron? Well done Micha. Is the Audi press fleet department that good at explaining you what to do? 1 charge at night when the car is stationary anyway. You will also use more of the excess wind power. 2 if you use the emergency charge cable, don't reduce charge current. 1.2kW? Seriously? Our normal wallplugs get you at least 2.3kW. 3 you have quick charging available at Apex, the socket is visible in every other shop video. Drehstromsteckdose guys. Requires a fancy cable but gets you at least 11kW. 4 don't charge to 100% when DC fastcharging. stop somewhere between 70 and 80%. Maybe watch a bit of nextmove or Björn Nyland or similar here on YT to get up to speed with the basics. Might be worth it.

    Misha, there's a difficult, long run into the mountains where I was living. Watched a Tesla pass me...maximum 300km range until a regular plugin. They were still parked, waiting as we filled up, and left (Audi RS5) for home. Erhhmm, I love Audi, always will...but it relates to your BMW 'disconnect' video....does Audi not see what they are doing?

    Full charge before trips. Drive a Tesla. All problems resolved. Audi NOT for trips.

    I like how Audi gets only slav accents commands. They know where they gonna end 10, 15 years from now.

  19. H3OTest
    Před 24 dny

    Well the charging is most effiecienty between 20-80 percent SOC. Meaning with around ~ 30 minutes of charging you can get 150km of effective range. Which I think for daily commuting is perfectly fine. That being said on the short clip I saw you charging the Etron Im pretty sure you didnt get the full charging power the audi can achieve. Afaik it should get up to 150Kw/h instead of only 70.

    So why did you not charge the Audi overnight, on a normal plug it could have charged sufficiently 🤷 Good job on making one of the fastest charging EV's look bad, but you said it yourself, bad preperation. For 90% of people and driving, EV's are perfectly suitable.

      @TwistedSymmetryUK easier said than done... There's a big gap between a 1500 multipoint bolt in and a 5000 welded in. Plus paint.

    2. TwistedSymmetryUK
      Před 12 dny

      @vipecrx Then dont have a cage and wait til you can afford a decent one 🤷🏽‍♂️ rather wait and spend more when i can afford it than have a shitty cage that might work when you need it. But anyway good chat i really need to get on with work now 🤣

    3. vipecrx
      Před 12 dny

      @TwistedSymmetryUK well, yeah. But it does for most. Most would love to have a "proper" cage. Few can afford it.

    4. TwistedSymmetryUK
      Před 12 dny

      @vipecrx I friend of mine had a bolt in in hes 46 from Nickson and it was very good. My argument is if a custom cage manufacturer can make it tight and then produce the same cage over and over from the measurments they have why cant a huge company? Price doesnt even come into it for me when it comes to safety. Dont mention the B word lol

    5. vipecrx
      Před 12 dny

      @TwistedSymmetryUK yeah, Cs ones are more like harness bars... Didn't even know nicks on did bolt on. There's not much on their website. A lot of custom manufacturers could make bolt ins tight to the body. But we're comparing mass production to custom-ish products now. Price also makes a difference so would have to factor that in too. Even more so now with brexit.

    Misha ziet Volvo, sweet memories! Mensen met een ICE auto vergeten dat 100 jaar geleden het tankstation netwerk ook beroerd was toe er steeds meer auto's kwamen, nu gebeurt het zelfde met het EV charge netwerk, dat is zich nu ook aan het ontwikkelen. Komt goed!

    I have a vehicle that can travel long distances, it sometimes needs to refuel like after 6 hours of driving, but it can refuel in a couple minutes, it's amazing! I have a feeling this amazing technology will catch on.

    Electric cars are just not there yet. Worst are those plug in hybrids, you waste so much time plugging those cars in. In longer trips your fuel consumption is ruined. Even local trips the cost of charging in my country is similar cost to an efficient diesel. For now diesel engines are still the best for daily driving and long trips. Better to save money and buy a cheap diesel, then you can have a proper car for the weekends.

      @Kyle B For most people it is fine. If you know you drive a lot or make trips you should just buy a petrol or plug in hybrid

      @MauriceNL its still 20+ minutes with a fast charger, that's enough time to get a decent size meal from a fast food store, nothing beats a sub-minute fuel-up and dash

    Charging to 100% overnight is the name of the game for longer trips for sure, but that's not practical for some people. Higher charging power also saves a fair bit of time (Tesla Superchargers go up to 250 kW) but long trips do get frustrating if you weren't already stopping to eat or some shit somewhere where you can charge. If you're not doing long trips driving many hours a day that often however, not paying for gas feels really nice and makes it possible to drive places you otherwise wouldn't bother with due to cost (gas is about €1.5 per liter/$6.70 per gallon in Sweden)

    Regards charging the eTron - I listened to a podcast who had an interview with the guy who had just broken the EV record across the USA (in a Taycan), he broke his trip down into 160km sections the theory being the charge is very fast until 60% (or there about) there after it slows right down. So charge little but often seems to be the way to do it.

    Hi Misha.. and greetings to the Apex gang 👍🙂👍 Talking about EV's, I'll share comment I left on Shmee video awhile back about his Porsche EV... If EV's are the future of motoring how will they supply thWorlds DEMAND for electric energy to charge these vehicles?.. Shutdown/close all coal & oil fired Electric power stations and rely on Sola power & Wind turbines?? Or dam up more rivers & lakes to build Hydro Electric Power stations??? The concept of EV's taking over the motoring world to the demise of petrol/diesel powered vehicles is just a FARCE! it's a JOKE far as I'm concerned!! ...Nuff said LOVE Ya Work bro Godbless, ava gday 🙂

    I had a Tesla P85d 4 years ago and I had all them range problems. When I sold it the journey to the dealer took me over 9 hours with stopping for charging. On the way home with the new petrol powered beast it took 5 with one stop to fill up! Local driving and as a traffic light racer they are great apart from that 💩 great vid as always.👌🏻🤟🏻

    Already last year, after 3 longer trips in our new BEV, I concluded: never ever again that I will go on >200km trip with the BEV. It is just not working. Even if high power charging expands, it will never match the convenience of driving 500km at very high speeds, then stopping for 5, max 10 min, getting coffee, toilet break AND fuel for another 500 high speed km:s...
