While it's true that 2021 is marked by the introduction of several new electric models, plug-in hybrid technology - or PHEV if you prefer - still has its raison d'être, although in the long term its relevance will be increasingly questioned as improvements make all-electric vehicle more and more attractive and acceptable to masses of consumers.

We begin this overview of the company that has decided to bet everything on electric propulsion in the next few years. The e-tron range had shown clearly what to expect from the German automaker in terms of its electric strategy. At the same time, let's not forget that Audi has no fewer than three plug-in hybrids in its lineup: the A7 TFSIe, A8 L TFSIe and Q5 TFSIe. While the Q5 SUV is an obvious fuel-efficient and eco-responsible choice in this SUV era, the A7 sedan-coupe and A8 L limousine are two unusual options for environmentally conscious motorists with big budgets.

Possible ranges (in electric mode): between 29 (A8 L) and 39 km (A7)
