Audi also mentions that the e-tron’s batteries are “engineered to utilize 88 percent, or 83.6 kWh, of the 95 kWh total battery capacity,” adding that “This engineering approach ensures battery longevity, repeatable performance and peak charging power for longer amounts of time during the charge cycle.” Perhaps this approach is too conservative and has hampered the car’s driving range in favor of quick charge times and longevity.
