Audi has introduced the brand new Q7 e-tron 2.0 TFSI Quattro which will be aimed towards the Asian markets and this should go on sale sometime next year.
While the European version of the Audi Q7 e-tron has a 3.0 liter six-cylinder TDI engine under its hood, along with an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery, the version of the Asian market is packing a smaller unit. We’re talking about a 2.0 liter TFSI four-cylinder petrol burner, producing 252 HP (185 kW) and 370 Nm (273 lb-ft) of torque, being backed up by an electric motor with an extra 128 HP (94 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft). The total output produced stands at 367 HP (270 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque.
From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the new Audi Q7 e-tron 2.0 TFSI Quattro needs 5.9 seconds and it can reach a maximum top speed of 220 km/h (137 mph). The average fuel consumption stands at just 2.5 liters / 100 km (113 mpg UK / 94.1 mpg US) and the CO2 emissions stop at less than 60 g/km. The electric motor is taking its juice from a 17.3 kWh battery which is allowing the model to travel on electric power alone for up to 53 km (33 miles). The total range of the hybrid stands at 1,020 km (634 miles). Recharging the battery will take up to 2.5 hours. The Audi Q7 e-tron 2.0 TFSI Quattro will be offered for sale in some Asian markets in 2016.
