Audi has taken the wraps off the Q7 e-tron 2.0 TFSI quattro developed specifically for Asian markets. Its heart and soul is a TFSI 4-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine developing 252 PS (185 kW) and 370 Nm (273 lb-ft) of torque working together with an electric motor that pumps out 128 PS (94 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft). With a combined output of 367 PS (270 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft), it’s no wonder the plug-in hybrid Q7 can complete the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in only 5.9 seconds before hitting a top speed of 137 mph (220 km/h).
Audi says the Q7 e-tron 2.0 TFSI quattro will consume a mere 2.5 liters / 100 km and emit less than 60 g/km of CO2. It comes packed with a 17.3 kWh battery which has enough juice to enable the SUV provide an electric range for as much as 33 miles (53 km). When used as a hybrid, the vehicle can cover up to 634 miles (1,020 km).
It will take about two and a half hours to fully recharge the battery pack when using the two-phase technology that provides support for charging with 7.2 kW of power.
