Pre-orders began with dealers of the brand in Germany. Such bi-fuel Audi, in addition to environmental friendliness and obvious savings, are ready to offer customers technological effectiveness and a new sports design.
In Germany, you can place an order for the Audi A4 Avant g-tron and A5 Sportback g-tron. Base prices for these cars will start at 43,200 euros and 45,100 euros, respectively. Models of the g-tron series are equipped with a 2.0 TFSI gasoline engine, which has been improved for working with compressed natural gas. Its power reaches 170 horsepower. Up to 100 km/h of cars with such a power plant can accelerate in 8.4 seconds. The maximum speed for the A4 Avant g-tron is 221 km / h, and for the A5 Sportback g-tron – 224 km / h. The drive here is front-wheel drive, and the seven-speed S tronic acts as a transmission.
Four reservoirs for natural gas, designed for 17.3 kg of fuel, were placed in the rear of the car. At the same time, there was no solid weight gain. And all thanks to a well-thought-out multilayer structure of different materials: polyamide, carbon fiber and fiberglass.
The cruising range of the Audi A5 Sportback g-tron in combined mode varies from 420 to 455 kilometers, while the A4 Avant g-tron has 420-440 km.

Tank filling is controlled by two indicators at once. Audi connect and Audi connect plus systems are also available, offering a wide variety of online services.
