In today’s episode of #WhatsupAudi we will take you on a test drive with the Audi A6 Avant TFSI e and show you what it is capable of.
Audi A6 Avant TFSI e:
Beautiful station wagons are called Avant – and are now also electrically driven and have zero local emissions. The intelligent drive management with a predictive operating strategy enables the new Audi A6 Avant 55 TFSI e quattro** to achieve a high electric range, low fuel consumption and dynamic performance. The Audi A6 Avant PHEV has a comprehensive range of standard equipment on board, including the S line exterior package, Audi virtual cockpit, Matrix LED headlights as well as sport suspension and sport seats.

Audi R8 green hell: Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 13.0; Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 299–297. Information on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions as well as efficiency classes in ranges depending on the tires and alloy wheel rims used.
Audi A6 Avant TFSI e: Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 2.1–1.9; Combined electric power consumption in kWh/100 km: 18.1–17.6; Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 48–44; Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and efficiency classes given in ranges depend on the tires/wheels used
Progressive sound for a progressive car: We recommend that you put on headphones when you play the video for an optimal 8D sound experience.
The Audi e-tron #GT sounds powerful and progressive due to its own e-sound. Whether it’s quality, design or technical characteristics – the Audi e-tron GT is a car packed with all the passion of Audi. Sound engineers Rudolf Halbmeir and Stephan Gsell conceived and designed the progressive electronic sound – follow them around during the process.

Dr Wolfgang Ullrich (Head of Audi Motorsport): “By competing at Le Mans, in the American Le Mans Series plus the Le Mans Endurance Series allows Audi to demonstrate its technology, like FSI, on a worldwide basis while DTM is important to our ‘local’ network in Germany. We are working towards keeping Audi involved in sports-prototype in the future. Long distance sportscar racing and DTM pose different problems for our engineers. News of Audi’s plans next year will be finalised in October or November as normal.”
Rod Bymaster (Audi Sport North America): “The Le Mans 24 Hours is known worldwide so it’s a powerful marketing tool for Audi North America. ALMS is still growing – partly due to the flexibility in engine sizes and regulations.”
Dave Maraj (Team Director Team ADT Champion Racing): “To score an American team’s first victory here since 1967 would be an amazing achievement and for me personally, for one of my cars to win, would be a lifetime achievement. Earlier this year Champion Motors opened the biggest Audi Centre in the world in Florida. Audi’s image in North America has definitely been increased by the Audi R8.”
Frank Biela (Team ADT Champion Racing #2): “With more weight and less power, overtaking is a big problem this year – under braking is the only opportunity and that can be quite dangerous. Reliability and race strategy will be the key to our success.”
Allan McNish (Team ADT Champion Racing #2): “I didn’t expect to qualify third or to be only three seconds off the ‘pole’. With the change in regulations for our car, the start and opening laps are even more important than ever before. For me, getting back in to the Audi R8 is liking getting in to an armchair in my lounge – I feel at home.”
Emanuele Pirro (Team ADT Champion Racing #2): “The Audi R8 has done so much for sportscar racing – it deserves to sign-off from Le Mans with a fifth victory. My target, as always is to finish Le Mans, but since 1999 I have been lucky and finished on the podium in all of these races. For me this year, there is a bigger wave of interest in Le Mans.”
Tom Kristensen (Team ADT Champion Racing #3): “There has been lots of talk about me claiming a record seventh Le Mans victory but I have already been fortunate to win this race six times. A driver is just a small spoke in a big wheel. We focussed on the race – not for qualifying. A bird flew over me when I was making my hand print in the town centre and s**t on me – is that good luck?”
JJ Lehto (Team ADT Champion Racing #3): “All three drivers focussed hard to get the car working to our liking in race trim. A single qualifying at Le Mans means nothing – it’s a 24 hour race. Compared to our ‘restricted’ Audi at Le Mans, our R8 in the ALMS is still a race car. Compared to most LM P1, some of the LM P2 and GT1 – and even the GT2 cars – overtaking is tough.”
Marco Werner (Team ADT Champion Racing #3): “Le Mans is a very special race – maybe the biggest in the world. To have already won the Daytona 24 Hours and the Sebring 12 Hours twice is good but victory here would be a dream. This is only my fourth Le Mans – I am still learning.”
Hugues de Chaunac (Team Director Audi PlayStation Team ORECA): “I have nothing but admiration for Audi and what they have done and achieved in sports car racing. Previously my drivers would only tell me what the Audi R8 looked like from the back – now we can do that to others. It was very satisfying to achieve fifth on the grid.”
Jean-Marc Gounon (Audi PlayStation Team ORECA #4): “Having driven other various sports-prototypes and now having been fortunate to drive an Audi R8, I can really feel and see the difference for myself. The car is so sophisticated and is so easy in terms of maintenance – and to drive. The hot weather could also help us compared to our rivals in terms of reliability.”
Franck Montagny (Audi PlayStation Team ORECA #4): “To go from driving the best Formula One car to driving the best sports-prototype is not difficult – in fact I immediately felt at home. I had various problems in qualifying but starting fifth is not a problem. The Le Mans 24 Hours is one of the three biggest races in the world alongside the Indy 500 and Monaco Grand Prix.”
Stéphane Ortelli (Audi PlayStation Team ORECA #4): “I am very happy to come back to Le Mans driving a sports-prototype and of course to be with Audi again. I was with them when they made their Le Mans debut in 1999 and again in 2000 – it’s like going home to a big family. The Audi R8 is without question the best car I have ever driven at Le Mans.”
The specified fuel consumption and emission data have been determined according to the measurement procedures prescribed by law. Since 1st September 2017, certain new vehicles are already being type-approved according to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure for measuring fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Starting on September 1st 2018, the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) will be replaced by the WLTP in stages. Owing to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions measured according to the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those measured according to the NEDC. Therefore, the usage of CO2 emission values measured according to WLTP for vehicle taxation from 1st September 2018 on can cause changes in this regards as well. For further information on the differences between the WLTP and NEDC, please visit
We are currently still required by law to state the NEDC figures. In the case of new vehicles which have been type-approved according to the WLTP, the NEDC figures are derived from the WLTP data. It is possible to specify the WLTP figures voluntarily in addition until such time as this is required by law. In cases where the NEDC figures are specified as value ranges, these do not refer to a particular individual vehicle and do not constitute part of the sales offering. They are intended exclusively as a means of comparison between different vehicle types. Additional equipment and accessories (e.g. add-on parts, different tire formats, etc.) may change the relevant vehicle parameters, such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics, and, in conjunction with weather and traffic conditions and individual driving style, may affect fuel consumption, electrical power consumption, CO2 emissions and the performance figures for the vehicle.
Further information on official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the “Guide on the fuel economy, CO2 emissions and power consumption of new passenger car models”, which is available free of charge at all sales dealerships and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, D-73760 Ostfildern, Germany and at
