Final approval drive of the new Audi Q7
At the beginning of April, the new Audi Q7 was in Namibia for the “Last Approval Drive”. On the final approval drive, Prof. Dr. Hackenberg and his chief development engineers from Technical Development performed the last fine-tuning of the Audi Q7. Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Board Member for Technical Development at AUDI AG: “The new Q7 also marks the debut of the second-generation modular longitudinal platform, the Audi technology matrix for models with longitudinally mounted engines. Efficient development and manufacturing provide Audi with the flexibility to offer new technologies and drive variants. The new Audi Q7 is a statement of our competence. With up to 325 kilograms (716.5 lb) less weight, it sets the benchmark among the competition. It is up to 28 percent more fuel efficient and is equipped with the latest assistance systems, infotainment modules and connect features.”
Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 6.4 – 5.5 (36.8 – 42.8 US mpg)
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 168 – 144 (270.4 – 231.7 g/mi)
(Figures on the fuel consumption and the CO2-emissions vary in case of given ranges depending on the used combination of wheels/tires.)
Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions data as well as the efficiency classes are dependent on the choice of wheels and tyres.
