The Audi Group has recently published its first official details about the future A6 Hybrid, the version that will try to protect the environment starting from next year.
According to the German car manufacturer, the new A6 Hybrid will be equipped with the famous 2.0 liter TFSI engine, capable of developing 211 HP and 350 Nm of torque, which will join the electric 54 HP motor, kept alive by a set of 72 cell lithium-ion batteries, placed in the trunk. Joining the two engines will result in the total 245 HP and 450 Nm.
Even though the next generation of the A6 will be friendly with the environment, this doesn’t mean it will also be slow. In fact it will be pretty fast considering its size, its weight and its hybrid technology. 7.3 seconds, that is the 0 to 100 km/h acceleration time according to the auto maker for the A6 Hybrid, with a top speed of 238 km/h. All of this for a 6.4 liter / 100 km average fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of just 146 g/km.
The new A6 Hybrid will come with an automated eight-gear transmission with three functioning modes, EV (with priority for the electric motor), D (both engines) and S (for sportier driving).
Despite the battery set being placed in the trunk, customers of the future A6 Hybrid will benefit from 375 liters of space and 850 liters when the back seat is down. The new premium-sedan will also keep its standard gas tank which can be filled with 73 liters and even with the hybrid technology on it the car will only have 1.770 kg.
The new Audi A6 Hybrid will hit the showrooms probably next year with an official appearance during an international auto show possible before that.
