Audi A7 Sportback TFSI e System design and driving situations
Audi is systematically pursuing its electrification strategy and is now offering its large four-door coupe as a powerful and efficient PHEV.
Intelligent drive management with a predictive operating strategy enables high electric range, low fuel consumption and dynamic performance.
The new Audi A7 Sportback 55 TFSI e quattro combines all of that with a system output of 270 kW (367 PS).
A comprehensive list of standard equipment with S line exterior package and sport suspension round out the sporty look.
The drivetrain of the new plug-in hybrid Audi A7 Sportback 55 TFSI e quattro comprises a turbocharged 2-liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine with an output of 185 kW (252 PS) and 370 Nm (272.9 lb-ft) of torque and an electric motor.
The permanently excited synchronous motor (PSM) has a peak output of 105 kW and peak torque of 350 Nm (258.1 lb-ft).
Together with the separating clutch, it is integrated into the seven-speed S tronic, which uses ultra technology to transfer the drive torque to a quattro ultra drivetrain.
Total system output is 270 kW (367 PS); the maximum torque of 500 Nm (368.8 lb-ft) is already available at just 1,250 rpm.
The A7 PHEV accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 5.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph).
As a company car, the plug-in hybrid model is subject to a lower tax rate in Germany because its electric range in the WLTP cycle is more than 40 kilometers (24.9 mi).
The A7 Sportback can drive at up to 135 km/h (83.9 mph) in electric-only mode, making emissions-free highway driving easy.
