Press Launch Hybrid Quattro Audi Q5: Electrically, the fastest

Audi now has its first full hybrid, the Audi Q5 Hybrid Quattro. Towards the end of the year he will initially be delivered in Germany. Its price: 53 700 euro, so about 10 000 € more than a comparable Q5 without the electric drive components. The price puts an enhanced equipment around 5000 €. The hybrid costs about 5000 € that is additional.

So far, Audi had more than once occasion the allegation that the Ingolstadt were too late with its own hybrid model, countered with even more efficient diesel. The need at the consumption data do not compare to spare with a hybrid, especially not if you plan not only to use his car in city traffic.

But a hybrid is now apparently in each model program. Audi itself estimates the share of hybrid vehicles in 2020 to around 30 percent. The world is ticking just different, especially in the U.S., Japan and in China, the country with the largest cities. Audi also assumes that a smaller gasoline engine needs to bring in the combination with the electric motor driving performance and driving experience as a six-cylinder model.

The petrol engine is the 2.0 TFSI, the Ingolstadt have chosen a much acclaimed four-cylinder direct injection and turbocharging, which develops 155 kW / 211 hp and a torque of 350 Newton meters (Nm) brings. The electric motor is located directly in the eight-speed automatic and provides 40 kW / 54 hp.

Its torque of 210 Nm starting at zero speed. Together they bring both to a system output of 180 kW / 245 hp and maximum torque of 480 Newton meters. These values are present in so-called boost and, ten seconds is available, enough for the motorway and overtaking all. The standard sprint from zero to 100 km / h in 7.1 seconds creates hybrid, as maximum speed 225 km / h indicated.

Consumption (the average for EU standard) is 6.9 liters per 100 km / h, corresponding to a carbon dioxide emission of 159 grams per kilometer. The users of company cars, many of which are subject recently of a 160 g / km rule will be happy that. For the better consumption Audi has laid the hybrid 10 millimeters lower, and the revised aerodynamics.

The drag coefficient is now at the class time high of 0.32 to 0.33. The Quattro Q5 Hybrid weighs 1910 kilograms, of which around 130 kilograms accounts onto hybrid system, of which the electric motor 20 kg, the additional clutch six kilograms, the 1.3 kWh lithium ion battery 37 kg and the power electronics ten kilograms.

The electric drive is equally at 60 km / h approximately three-kilometer range and speed make the car a maximum of 100 km / h. The latter should represent the hybrid scene in a peak value. The battery will be found where the normal Q5 will be the spare room or under the trunk floor otherwise, an additional loading space for small items was available.

More losses required by the hybrid drive is not, and the trunk is unaffected. Pride is one of Audi that the maximum towing capacity remains at 2400 kg. The latest version of the MMI - already known Audi A8 and Audi A6 - can and the display of the onboard computer, the driver can also provide information on the operating conditions of his car.

He always knows whether just fed during braking energy or how much influence his accelerating consumption. Audi is convinced that the battery keeps the car's life, and now takes 300,000 km. In the guarantee, the Ingolstadt abide by the rules that apply to other brand vehicles: two years.

It is very convinced of its first hybrid, and calls the "the first full hybrid SUV in the B segment of the premium class."
