A company from Ingolstadt has updated the lineup of its popular crossover, as well as expanded its line of rechargeable hybrids. Now on sale is the 450-horsepower Q7 PHEV, and 40 km of power reserve.

Audi introduced its rival to the hybrid variants of the Volvo XC90 and BMW X5. Now the engine line of the Audi Q7 crossover has replenished with the TFSI e Quattro variant with two power levels. Options for 449 and 376 horsepower are available for purchase. In both cases, only an “automatic” with eight steps and a proprietary all-wheel drive system are offered.

As the main power unit, a 3.0-liter turbo engine is used, paired with a 126-horsepower electric motor. A battery of 17.3 kW * hours is used as a power source, which provides up to 40 km of power reserve only on electricity. The maximum speed in the electric car mode is 135 km / h.

 In design, there are practically no differences from the standard version. Outside, the hybrid can be recognized by the charging port hatch on the front left wing, as well as the inscription “TFDI e” on the stern. Additional indicators appeared in the cabin, and a version with three rows of seats disappeared. Now the battery does not allow you to place additional seats.

At the moment, it is known that the model will be offered in Europe, but the United States will not receive it.
