It accelerates from zero to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 6.2 seconds, yet consumes just 1.8 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers (130.7 US mpg). The Audi Q7 e-tron quattro is as sporty as it is comfortable and at the same time particularly efficient. In all-electric mode, it has a range of up to 56 kilometers (34.8 mi) while producing zero local emissions. It is the world’s first plug-in hybrid with a V6 TDI engine and quattro drive.
The plug-in hybrid brings the best of both worlds to the road. The Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI quattro combines the advantages of a combustion engine with those of an electric drive and sets new benchmarks in the competitive field.
Sporty power and low consumption
The plug-in hybrid drive in the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro delivers plenty of power in any situation. The 3.0 TDI engine and the electric motor together produce a combined system output of 275 kW (373 hp) and 700 Nm (516.3 lb‑ft) of torque. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) takes just 6.2 seconds; top speed is 230 km/h (142.9 mph), 135 km/h (83.9 mph) on electric power alone. Thanks to the 75 liter (19.8 US gal) fuel tank, total range is as much as 1,320 kilometers (820.2 mi). The advantage of the plug-in hybrid: Whereas cars with classic drive trains lose energy during braking, the Q7 e-tron quattro recuperates. In other words, during braking, it converts kinetic energy to electrical energy, which it can use again when accelerating.
The advantage of the rechargeable battery in the Q7 e-tron quattro is that it largely covers the needs of daily mobility. In all-electric mode with 94 kW peak output, customers can drive up to 56 kilometers (34.8 mi) with zero local emissions.
The Audi Q7 e-tron quattro also sets standards in consumption: According to the ECE standard for plug-in hybrids, it uses just 1.8 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers (130.7 US mpg). This corresponds to emissions of 48 grams CO2 per kilometer (77.2 g/mi). The climate control system is also designed for maximum efficiency.
With the integrated heat pump, the thermal management system uses the waste heat of the electrical components and was specially developed for the SUV. Audi is the first manufacturer worldwide to use this technology in a production plug-in hybrid.
Traveling in luxury
The Audi Q7 e-tron quattro offers the most spacious interior in its segment and can be customized with numerous luxury-class comfort and convenience features. The display and operating concepts also set benchmarks. The standard Audi virtual cockpit and MMI system have been redeveloped from the ground up. Their operation is simple and features intelligent logic.
In the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro, the standard MMI navigation plus, which includes the Audi connect internet module, works closely with the hybrid management system. Navigation data and real-time traffic information can thus be used to compute an efficient hybrid strategy for the best route to the destination before starting out. Underway, the predictive efficiency assistant helps the driver to save fuel. It generates a detailed image of the route up to three kilometers (1.9 mi) ahead and uses visual cues to suggest releasing the accelerator when appropriate. At the same time, the active accelerator pulses once against the sole of driver’s foot. This new assistance system is another pioneering technology from Audi.
