This week at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show Audi unveiled its all-new Q7 e-tron quattro, a plug-in hybrid SUV with a range of 1,410 kilometres including 55 kilometres in EV mode. It also emits fewer than 50g/km of CO2 and achieves 1.7L/100km according to the European test cycle.
The Audi Q7 e-tron quattro is the first plug-in hybrid SUV equipped with a diesel engine, namely Volkswagen AG's TDI. The latter produces 255 horsepower, and if you add the 94 kW (126 hp) from the electric drive train, total output amounts to 368 horsepower. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h takes six seconds, and top speed is 223 km/h.
Offering the largest interior in its class, the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro has 890 litres of cargo room with all seats up; fold down the second and third rows and you wind up with 2,075 litres.
Pricing and availability have yet to be announced, so stay tuned for more details. Customers in the U.K. will be able to order one starting in late 2015.
