At Audi South Africa we feel confident that the market we serve is ready to embrace a more premium and sustainable form of mobility. As we plan to bring the Audi e-tron range of electric vehicles to South Africa, we believe that it’s also an opportune time to inspire and expose consumers towards the future of motoring and all that it can offer. The future is really an attitude if you are able to embrace the transformation and look at the possibilities that the new era of e-mobility will include.
Maintaining the charge
As a market, South Africa is assumed to have many adoption barriers to overcome as it prepares to embrace the next era of mobility. But the excitement and possibilities around e-mobility offer much fascination when one considers the optimistic outlook, writes Sascha Sauer, Managing Director of Audi South Africa. Let’s debunk and address the perceived anxiety associated with charging an electric vehicle in the current South African landscape.
Calming the uncertainty: range anxiety, charge time, battery power
Each evening before we switch off the lights, we keep our devices plugged in for an overnight charge so that they’re ready for operation in the morning. In a digital world of mobile phones, tablets and smartwatches, recharging is so habitual that we do it unconsciously. And so the idea of a “top up charge” to an electric vehicle each night can easily form part of our daily routine, writes Sascha Sauer, Managing Director of Audi South Africa.
