It accelerates from a standstill to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in six seconds, and yet consumes not even two liters of diesel per 100 kilometers (117.6 US mpg). The Audi Q7 e-tron quattro is sporty, comfortable and at the same time highly efficient. The world’s first TDI plug in hybrid with quattro drive, it is also the first plug-in hybrid with a diesel engine from Audi.
In addition to the show car Audi prologue Avant, Audi is presenting four models of the new R8 family*, the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro and the RS 3 Sportback* at the Geneva International Motor Show, which takes place from March 5 to 15. The Audi press conference will already be held on Tuesday, March 3 at 10:50 a.m. The brand with the Four Rings will transmit it live on various channels and will provide interested media outlets with extensive material.
Seventh heaven: From March 5 to 15, Audi will be showing seven impressive new models at the International Motor Show in Geneva. Alongside the Audi prologue Avant concept car, the Audi stand at Europe’s biggest auto show of 2015 will also exhibit four new Audi R8 models. The Audi Q7 e-tron quattro marks the arrival of the first plug in hybrid in the Q model series. Meanwhile, the Audi RS 3 Sportback sits proudly on the podium as the most powerful premium compact car in the world.
Hot, throaty sound, exhilaratingly free-revving and brawny power – the five cylinder engines from Audi are legendary. 270 kW (367 hp) output and 465 Nm (343.0 lb ft) of torque – Audi presents the new RS 3 Sportback*, the most powerful compact car in the premium segment. With its powerful five cylinder, turbocharged engine, the five door model accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.3 seconds, and its top speed can be increased to 280 km/h (174.0 mph) upon request.
No model with the four rings is closer to motorsport, none is more striking and more dynamic: at the Geneva Motor Show, Audi is presenting the second generation of its high-performance R8 sports car. The V10 mid-engine and a newly developed quattro drive ensure breathtaking driving performance, especially in the top-of-the-range version with 449 kW (610 hp): achieving 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in just 3.2 seconds, its top speed is 330 km/h (205.1 mph).
A design with dynamic elegance and the latest high end technologies: The Audi prologue Avant show car with its stretched roof which the brand is presenting at the Geneva Motor Show gives a look into the future – with the new and emotion filled design language that Audi has initiated with its study in the coupé, the prologue.
