U.S. Audi e-tron buyers can soon ready their homes for the new all-electric SUV. In a first collaboration of its kind, Audi and Amazon Home Services are teaming up to make home EV charging as easy as ordering the millions of others items and services available on Amazon.com.
“When Audi does electric, we do it by bringing our customers the utmost in convenience and premium experience,” said Scott Keogh, president of Audi of America. “In addition to our customers being able to reserve their e-tron online, we’re proud to work with a similarly customer-centric company like Amazon to make in-home charging simple and convenient for e-tron buyers.”
Amazon Home Services will offer Audi e-tron buyers a fully digital experience where they can conveniently learn about EV home charging installation and equipment, view upfront pricing for electrical services, schedule an electrician to install an EV charger, and read helpful reviews from other Amazon customers. Amazon’s Happiness Guarantee backs all home charging installation services, so customers know it will be done to their satisfaction.
The Audi e-tron is expected to arrive in U.S. showrooms the second quarter of 2019. This turn-key solution offered through Amazon Home Services will be available in advance at www.amazon.com/audicharging for e-tron owners to ready their homes.
The Audi e-tron is the first all-electric, fastest-charging vehicle being introduced by the Audi brand. It is a spacious five-seater, electric mid-sized SUV that is very well-equipped for premium buyers to go electric today. The Audi e-tron boasts an innovative battery design engineered for repeatable performance and longevity with safety in mind, accompanied by the highest levels of infotainment and driver assistance systems. A complete EV ecosystem delivers the confidence customers deserve to go electric today.
The e-tron will be the first of three battery-electric vehicles that Audi plans to debut by 2020, with nearly 30 percent of its customers in the U.S. anticipated to go electric by 2025.
