Audi Q5 crossover will get a hybrid engine

A couple of minutes ago, it became known that the German crossover in the performance of 55 TFSI will receive a version of the E Quattro with a hybrid power plant. Audi already accepts orders in Europe for the Q5 55 TFSI E Quattro crossover, the initial price is 60,450 euros. The first deliveries are scheduled for the third quarter of the year.

After the launch of the E-Tron Quattro and the Chinese Q2 L E-Tron (an elongated and electric version of the crossover, designed only for China), it became known about another Audi model that received an electric motor. Unlike the above-listed cars, the new Q5 TFSI E Quattro retains the internal combustion engine, forming a hybrid powerplant. The role of the main engine plays a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine, which develops 248 horsepower (370 Nm). There is also a 141 hp electric motor. (350 Nm).

Audi claims that a hybrid installation with a plug-in module allows a medium-sized crossover to have a total capacity of 362 hp. (500 Nm).

An electrified car spends just 5.3 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h, and its maximum speed is 239 km / h, which is not bad considering the size of the car and the relatively small four-cylinder engine acting as the main one.

Audi promises that the new Q5 55 TFSI E Quattro will consume only 2.1 liters per 100 km in the combined cycle. This means that CO2 emissions are only 46 g / km in the “hybrid” mode, while in the fully electric mode, the novelty will be able to travel more than 40 km. Without an internal combustion engine, the crossover can accelerate to 135 km / h.
