Audi A5 e-tron Quattro Plug-In Hybrid Prototype Revealed

Audi A5 e-tron Plug-In Hybrid Prototype is powered by a 2.0 litre TFSI engine, that produces 211bhp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The engine is matched with a 45bhp electric motor on the front. Both these engines are used to drive the front wheels through a dry clutch and four-speed automatic transmission.

There is also a second electric motor at the back, that produces 81bhp and 221 lb-ft of torque. This engine is only used in case there is additional traction needed or when accelerating.

Electric motors get their power from a 9.4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, that offers a range of up to 25 miles from a full charge and speeds up to 62 mph. Average fuel economy is 104 mpg, 0-62mph comes in 5.9 seconds and it has a top speed of 142mph.

Peugeot is launching their 3008 HYbrid4 all-wheel drive diesel-electric hybrid later this year, so we wouldn’t be surprised if Audi is also taking their e-tron quattro plug-in hybrid into production vehicles in the near future.
