The model in question is now being highlighted once more this time with the help of its first official video. The full-size SUV made in Ingolstadt, which is now in its second generation, has received the 3.0 liter TDI six-cylinder diesel burner under its hood, along with an electric motor and a 17.3 kWh lithium-ion battery, connected to an 8-speed tiptronic transmission.

The total output stands at 373 HP (275 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque, allowing the SUV to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6 seconds and to go up to 225 km/h (140 mph). The fuel consumption stands at 1.7 L / 100 km (166 mpg UK / 138 mpg US) and the CO2 emissions stop at 50 g/km.
