Audi To Present Audi Q5, A6, A7 and A8 Plug-In Hybrids In Geneva

A week away from Geneva, Audi is unveiling four new plug-in hybrid models, the Q5, A6, A7 and A8 TFSI e.

Audi is set for the Geneva Motor Show with the announcement of four new plug-in hybrid variants of the Q5, A6, A7 and A8. Ready to make their debut next week, the new TFSI e will have an all-electric range of 40 km.

With this announcement, the German manufacturer mentions that from now on, the e-tron nomenclature will now be used for 100% EVs only. For this reason, the announced plug-in hybrid variants will carry the name “TFSI e”.

The lithium-ion battery in the Audi Q5, A6, A7 and A8 TFSI will have a capacity of 14.1 kWh. Each model will be available in two distinct versions, comfort and performance.

According to the British magazine Auto Express, these variants will wear the names 50 TFSI e or 55 TFSI e for the Audi Q5, A6 and A7. As for the Audi A8, it will be badged as 55 TFSI e and 60 TFSI e.

The 50 TFSI e versions will be powered by a 2.0L 4-cyl turbo engine while the 55 TFSI e will be powered by a 3.0L V6.

Three different modes will be offered to the drivers of these plug-in hybrids: “EV”, “Auto” and “Hold”. The “Auto” mode allows the system to choose, on its own, when to use the gas engine or electric motor for maximum efficiency. The “Hold” mode controls the powertrain so that the current state of charge of the battery is maintained. Obviously, the “EV” mode prioritizes driving in electric mode.

In addition to the three modes mentioned above, the driver will be able to select different driving modes, namely “comfort”, “efficiency”, “auto”, and “dynamic”, which will thus influence the configuration of the drive, suspension and steering.

The myAudi app will also be available to the buyers. This will allow you to remotely check the battery and range status, start the charging process, program the charge timer and view the charge and consumption statistics.

Pre-entry climate control is also available with the myAudi app. A prompt start of the climate components is also possible when unlocking the vehicle with the key.
