Audi SQ7 TDI wins “Autocar Innovation Award 2016”

Posted on 25. May, 2016 by in Audi Canada

“The newly grown V8 engine of a Audi SQ7 TDI uses an electric powered compressor – that is a universe first,” announced Dr. Stefan Knirsch, Member of a Board of Management for Technical Development during Audi. This compressor supports a work of a dual turbochargers generally during low-end revs and guarantees limit dynamics with no turbo lag. The high-performance basement is a 48 volt electrical subsystem, that also provides a appetite for a electromechanical active hurl stabilization. “These innovations capacitate a new Audi SQ7 TDI to denote “Vorsprung durch Technik” in practice”, forked out Knirsch: “We feel respected that a jury has selected a new Audi SQ7 TDI as a target of a “Autocar Innovation Award”.

There is zero allied with electromechanical active hurl stabilization among any of a competitors. This complement significantly reduces side lean of a automobile and paves a approach for firm, sporty handling. The outcome is that a automobile rolls reduction on bends. The SQ7 TDI achieves aloft parallel acceleration and so faster cornering. The electromechanical active hurl stabilization, like a electric powered compressor (EPC), draws a energy from a new 48 volt electrical subsystem.

The SQ7 TDI is a initial Audi to underline this high-performance voltage system. A DC/DC converter connects a 48 volt electrical subsystem to a 12 volt electrical system. To accommodate a high energy mandate and short-term electricity mandate of a electromechanical active hurl stabilization and electric powered compressor, there is a apart 48 volt lithium-ion battery for a electrical subsystem underneath a luggage compartment. Its rise outlay is adult to 13 kilowatts.

Autocar paid reverence to this Vorsprung durch Technik with a “Innovation Award” for superb technical developments.

Fuel expenditure of a models named above

Audi SQ7 TDI (5-seater model):
Combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 7.5 – 7.2** (31.4 – 32.7 US mpg);
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 198 – 189** (318.7 – 304.2 g/mi)

Audi SQ7 TDI (7-seater model):
Combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 7.6 – 7.2** (30.9 – 32.7 US mpg);
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 199 – 190** (320.3 – 305.8)

**Fuel expenditure and CO2 glimmer total given in ranges count on a tires/wheels used as good as a engine/transmission version.
