2016 Audi Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI quattro revealed [video]

Audi has unveiled the all-new Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI quattro based on the latest second-generation Q7 SUV.

The Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI is the first diesel plug-in hybrid with quattro drive in its segment, offering great performance and fuel economy.

Power comes from a plug-in hybrid powertrain that consists of a 3.0-litre TDI six-cylinder diesel engine, an electric motor and a 7.2 kW lithium-ion battery. Combined power output is 373bhp and 700Nm of torque, enough to take the big SUV from 0-62mph in 6.0 seconds on its way to a top speed of 139 mph.

The Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI can travel in purely EV mode for up to 56 km (35 miles) and overall range is up to 876 miles. Average fuel economy is a very impressive 166mpg.

Visually the e-tron model is distinguished from the standard Q7 with a new front fascia featuring a revised grille and modified air intakes. There is also a new rear diffuser and new aerodynamic 19-inch alloy wheels.

The interior carries largely over from the standard models and comes with standard MMI navigation plus, with Audi connect internet module, that closely integrated into the hybrid management system on the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro.

While in Europe the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro will use the petrol engine and an electric motor, it is rumoured to use a petrol engine in few other markets like the North America.

Sales are scheduled to start in the spring of 2016.
