Audi unveils pricing for the E-Tron’s charging infrastructure in Europe: Electrek reports that Audi has released pricing for its chargers for the E-Tron in Europe. And they aren’t satisfied with the pricing. According to the article: Audi’s system involves several options for different tiers that gives owners access to more than 72,000 charging points in 16 EU markets with a single contract and charging card. One of them is “City tariff” which costs €4.95 per month on top of a €7.95 fee per level 2 charging session and €9.95 fee per DC fast-charging session (up to 50 kW). The second option is “Transit tariff”, which gives you access to Ionity’s new 150 kW charging stations for long-distance travel. It costs €17.95 per month and the pricing per session is the same for level 2 and DC fast-charging up to 50 kW, but when using the up to 150 kW stations from Ionity, you will pay €8.00 per charging session and €0.33 per kWh.
That roughly equates to $5.16 per month plus $9.12 per level 2 charging session plus $11.41 for the fast charging. The Transt Tarriff is $20.59 per month with $9.17 for the Ionity charging sessions with $0.38 per kWh. That really isn’t that cheap.

A rep named Ron Kinno from Subaru USA confirmed that both companies are moving forward on the next gen of the sports coupes. That’s very good news.
A Hyundai Tuscon N is coming
At least according to Autoblog. Apparently its coming in ‘21 with 340 horses and they are shooting for a 0-60 time of under 6 seconds. A rep from N is saying that this is because “Hyundai’s not interested in making also-ran cars with N badges on them in whatever class they compete.” Well damn. This should be interesting.
