Audi UK goes EV myth-busting with Rory Bremner

Audi has teamed up with impressionist Rory Bremner to host a YouTube series that looks to debunk myths surrounding electric vehicles.

Comedian and impressionist, Rory Bremner, leads the five-part series where he will address common misconceptions such as cost, range and charging infrastructure.

In the short series of myth-busting films, Bremner points out, for example, that as well as being cheaper to run the all-new Audi Q4 e-tron is actually over £4,000 cheaper to buy than an equivalent, conventionally-powered Q5. As well as highlighting the advantages EVs bring when it comes to running costs, Bremner will also touch on the Q4 Sportback e-tron 40 Sport’s driving range of up to 323 miles, which is a significant 38 times the distance of 8.4 miles driven in an average single journey in the UK.

The five-part series begins today on the Audi UK YouTube channel as well as being published across official Twitter and Instagram channels. The full schedule for the series is as follows:

November 12 – Why do EVs cost so much more?

November 15 – Can you drive an EV through a carwash?

November 19 – Isn’t it expensive to service an EV?

November 23 – EVs don’t go far enough on a full battery, aren’t they inconvenient?

November 26 – Are there enough public chargers? What if I need to top up on the move?

The new web series comes in line with Audi’s commitment for all new models to be electric by 2026, with its internal combustion engine production being scraped in 2033.
