New 435 horsepower Audi SQ7 with electrically powered compressor revealed

The SQ7, is first Audi S model in the Q7 lineup, and the second ever S-specific Audi SUV. Electric powered compressor is a world first on a production car packing 435 hp and 900Nm from the V8 BiTDI. 0-62 mph comes in just 4.8 seconds, while the top speed is limited to 155 mph.

As the world’s first series production car combining turbocharging with an electrically powered compressor, it brings breathtakingly immediate response. Consigning ‘turbo lag’ to history, the boundary-stretching technology underscores the newcomer’s eligibility for the ‘S’ badge that denotes extraordinary performance across the Audi range, and fittingly goes hand-in-hand with another major forward stride in dynamics – electromechanical active roll stabilisation for significantly reduced body roll.

The redesigned V8 BiTDI engine develops 435 hp and 900 Nm of torque, returning up to 38.2 mpg combined. This corresponds to CO2 emissions of 194 g/km.

“Following the launch of the successful SQ5, we are now also applying the concept of a diesel-engined S model to the Q7 model line. So equipped, the SQ7 TDI with a V8 TDI engine achieves the consumption figures of a six-cylinder. The new technology solution of the electric powered compressor in the SQ7 TDI is a world first in the competitive environment, with which Audi once again underscores its claim Vorsprung durch Technik,” said Dr. Stefan Knirsch, Member of the Board of Management of AUDI AG for Technical Development.
