Audi Offering 22-kW Charging On 2021 E-Trons

As the world shifts over to electric vehicles, the features that will be updated and introduced with new model years won’t be the same that car shoppers are traditionally used to. Goodbye minor improvement in miles-per-gallon, hello improved kilowatt charging.

That’s the announcement from Audi this week regarding the new line-up of its E-tron models, at least in Europe. While the current models can charge at 11 kW when connected to a DC fast charger, the 2021 model year E-tron 55 and E-tron Sportback 55 can now be ordered with a second on-board charger that doubles the power to up to 22 kW at “appropriate charging terminals,” Audi said. Other E-tron models, the E-tron 50 and the E-tron S specifically, will get this option in the middle of 2021. The new 22-kW on-board charging system can be used at home or at public

PS5 And Xbox Series X Scalpers Are Charging A Big Premium

After a busy week of launches, the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S have so far been difficult to come by, with new stock being bought up almost as soon as it drops. Some have blamed the stock shortages on bots buying up consoles for scalpers, and while we can’t know how many of the purchases were made by bots, there sure are a lot of next-gen consoles being listed for high prices on Ebay.

While it was inevitable that the consoles would end up on Ebay with inflated prices, it looks like the re-sellers are doing a decent trade, too. A look through the PS5 listings that have sold in the day shows the consoles going for between $850 and $1200 in most cases. The console’s recommended retail price is $500 for the disk edition or $400 for the digital-only console.
