Audi pulls the plug on the A6 Hybrid image

The German based automaker Audi has officially announced the production stop of the A6 Hybrid because of the weak demand.

Audi has decided to pull the plug on the A6 Hybrid, after three years of production. The decision has been made after the model has turned out to have a weak demand. After the three years spent on the market, the company has managed to sell just 4,000 units of the A6 Hybrid and because of this, production of the model has been recently stopped and it will not be resumed.

As a quick reminder, the Audi A6 Hybrid is taking its power from a 2.0 liter TFSI four-cylinder engine, which is capable of developing 211 HP (155 kW), being backed up by an electric motor, providing an extra 45 HP (33 kW). The total output produced by this assembly stands at 245 HP (180 kW) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque. The “green” premium sedan can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.3 seconds and it has a top speed of 238 km/h (148 mph). The average fuel consumption stands at 6.2L / 100km (45 mpg UK / 38 mpg US) and the CO2 emissions stop at 142 g/km.
