Audi South Africa has released official pricing for its e-tron family of electric cars ahead of the national launch in 2022. As it stands, customers can order their e-tron through ten Audi dealerships. These are situated in Johannesburg (three), Pretoria (three), Cape Town (two), and Durban (two). Audi also confirmed that e-tron owners would be able to charge their vehicles at these dedicated e-tron dealerships equipped with charging infrastructure ranging from DC 50 to 70kW.

Currently, South Africa has more than 280 universal charge point connectors, but Audi will support customers when they make use of public charging stations in the following ways:

  • A complimentary Audi branded RFID charge card for use with the Gridcars charging network.
  • Complimentary first year membership to Gridcars charging network and charging portal.
  • A once-off charging voucher to allow for a convenient first-time charge at a public charging point.

Should e-tron owners decide to have charging infrastructure installed at their homes, a home check will be conducted by an approved service provider - complimentary - to determine the necessary upgrades or installations needed.
