It’s a different kind of Q7. One that combines SUV design, with our latest plug-in hybrid technology.
The Audi Q7 e-tron quattro is the world’s first plug-in hybrid car with a six-cylinder diesel engine and permanent all-wheel drive. Its sporty power is impressive: The 3.0 TDI and electric motor deliver 275 kW (373 hp) and 700 Nm (516.3 lb-ft) of system torque – enough to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 6.0 seconds and for a top speed of 225 km/h (139.8 mph). The Q7 e-tron quattro travels up to 56 kilometers (34.8 mi) on electric power alone.
According to the ECE standard for plug-in hybrid vehicles, the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro needs only 1.7 liters of diesel fuel per 100 kilometers (138.4 US mpg) – with a CO2 emission level of 46 grams per kilo-meter (80.5 g/mi) and a new best value in the segment. The standard thermal management system with integrated heat pump was specially developed for the Q7 e tron quattro. With this technology, Audi is the first manufacturer worldwide to set a new benchmark in the areas of interior comfort and climate control efficiency.
The new Audi Q7 e-tron quattro is a long-distance car with great sporting talent and yet suitable for everyday use. The new electro-mechanical power steering is highly efficient as well as sensi-tive. The five-link wheel suspensions, also newly developed, on the front and rear axles are lighter by 60 kilograms (132.3 lb) compared with the predecessor model, and greatly contributes to the high driving dynamics. The lowered center of gravity also plays an essential role here.
Audi has added specific items to infotainment for displays in electric mode. Consumption statis-tics are available, for example, along with a graphic display of the electric range in the navigation map. Charging as well as the preliminary air conditioning can also be time-controlled and adapted to the customer’s requirements, such as departure time, so as to save resources and costs.
The body plays a decisive role in the relatively low weight of the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro. With its many components made of hot-formed steel and aluminum, it utilizes the same lightweight construction potential as the conventional Q7. The drag coefficient is only 0.34.
The only way to discover what the Audi Q7 e-tron is really like is to take a test drive. We would be delighted to arrange this for you (either from the showroom, your office or home).
