Sporty and fit with plug-in hybrid drive: a Audi Q5 55 TFSI e quattro

Posted on 21. May, 2019 by in Audi Canada

The new expostulate judgment comprises a 2.0 TFSI, a four-cylinder, turbocharged gasoline engine producing 185 kW (252 hp) and 370 Nm (272.9 lb-ft) of torque, and an electric engine (combined fuel consumption: 2.4 – 2.1 l/100 km* (98.0 – 112.0 US mpg); sum CO2 emissions: 53 – 46 g/km* (85.3 – 74.0 g/mi)). The henceforth vehement synchronous engine (PSM) has a rise outlay of 105 kW and rise torque of 350 Nm (258.1 lb-ft). It and a separating purchase are integrated into a seven-speed S tronic, that uses ultra record to send a expostulate torque to a quattro drivetrain. The hybrid SUV impresses with a complement outlay of 270 kW (367 hp) and sum torque of 500 Nm (368.8 lb-ft) only above idle, namely from 1,250 rpm. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) takes 5.3 seconds; tip speed is 239 km/h (148.5 mph). According to a customary for plug-in hybrid vehicles, fuel expenditure ranges from 2.4 – 2.1 l/100 km (98.0 – 112.0 US mpg), analogous to 53 – 46 grams CO2 per kilometer (85.3 – 74.0 g/mi). Its electric operation in a WLTP cycle is some-more than 40 kilometers (25.9 mi). Top speed in electric mode is 135 km/h (83.9 mph), adequate even for highway driving.

The SUV’s lithium-ion battery is located underneath a luggage cell floor. It is done adult of 104 kaleidoscopic cells and stores 14.1 kWh of appetite with a voltage of 381 volts. For optimal feverishness control, a cooling loop is connected to both a coolant loop for a meridian control complement and a low-temperature cooling loop into that a electric engine and appetite wiring are also integrated. The meridian control complement uses a rarely fit feverishness siphon that pools a rubbish feverishness from a high-voltage components. With 1 kW of electrical energy, it can beget adult to 3 kW of thermal heating output. That creates a automobile some-more fit and also provides a some-more gentle meridian for a occupants.

quattro permanent all-wheel expostulate with ultra technology
The Q5 55 TFSI e** outlines a initial time that a efficiency-optimized all-wheel expostulate with ultra record is used in multiple with an electric motor. The all-wheel expostulate system’s intelligent control works predictively, always looking forward by means of sensors and a continual research of a information collected on pushing dynamics and motorist behavior. The quattro all-wheel expostulate complement is so always prepared when needed. At low loads and a sufficient fellow of attrition between a wheels and a highway surface, a delivery of appetite to a behind wheels is deactivated. The drivetrain afterwards functions with high potency as a front-wheel expostulate system. All-wheel expostulate is deactivated whenever it is not needed, though it stays accessible during all times. Fast, involuntary activation of a all-wheel expostulate complement follows a three-stage strategy: proactive, predictive and reactive. By networking quattro expostulate with Audi expostulate select, drivers can adjust not only a impression of a engine, though also a all-wheel-drive properties to fit their particular preferences.

Driver modes and a updated predictive potency assistant
Particularly still and with 0 internal emissions in a city, with high operation on long-distance trips or sportily energetic with a sum appetite of a explosion engine and a electric motor: a Audi Q5 55 TFSI e quattro** cleverly manages a series of versatile expostulate modes. The judgment is designed so that business can do a lion’s share of their daily pushing electrically.

The predictive potency partner (PEA) adjusts coasting recuperation duty to a conditions during hand. It uses a predictive track information from a navigation database and monitors a stretch to a automobile forward regulating signals from a camera and radar. Depending on a situation, a complement chooses predictively between freewheeling with a engine switched off and coasting recuperation, i.e. the liberation of kinetic appetite and a acclimatisation into electrical energy.

When a adaptive journey control (ACC) is active, a PEA supports a motorist by automatically braking and accelerating with a aim of enhancing potency and comfort. If a motorist is pushing but ACC, however, a haptic vigilance from a active accelerator pedal and a visible vigilance in a cockpit and head-up arrangement prove a correct time to let off a accelerator to use as most kinetic appetite as possible. At a same time, black in a cockpit prove a reason for a rebate in speed. There are indicators for: speed limits, city signs, curves and downhill slopes, trade circles, intersections, highway exits and trade ahead.

The motorist is giveaway to select either and how to meddle in a interplay between engine and motor. There are 3 pushing modes from that to choose:

Hybrid mode is activated automatically together with track superintendence in a navigation system. It can also be activated manually regulating a Mode button. In this mode, a battery assign is optimally distributed over a track to revoke fuel consumption, with essentially electric pushing in civic areas and stop-and-go traffic. The complement chooses between freewheeling with a engine switched off and coasting recuperation. Coasting recuperation can redeem adult to 25 kW of power. The electric engine is obliged for all light braking adult to 0.1 g, i.e. the infancy of braking in bland driving. A limit of 80 kW of electrical appetite are generated around braking recuperation during a deceleration of adult to 0.2 g. The front brakes are used for some-more appetite deceleration. If track superintendence is active in a MMI navigation system, a predictive handling plan attempts to expostulate a final civic shred of a track all-electrically and arrive during a finish with a expostulate battery scarcely empty. The control duty is formed on a vast volume of data. These embody online trade information, stretch to a destination, a track form of a selected route, accurate information about evident vicinity from a navigation data, such as speed limits, forms of roads, ascending and downhill slopes and a latest information from a onboard sensors.

Besides Hybrid mode, a motorist can also select between EV and Battery Hold modes. In EV mode, a automobile is driven exclusively electrically as prolonged as a motorist does not subdue a accelerator past a variable, obvious vigour point. EV mode is a bottom environment any time a automobile is started. In Battery Hold mode, battery ability is hold during a stream level.

Individual: apparatus and design
The Audi Q5 55 TFSI e** combines with inexhaustible list of customary equipment. LED headlights, competition seats, three-zone involuntary meridian control, preference key, DIS with tone display, PHEV-specific displays and 18-inch wheels in a five-arm turbine pattern are standard. The behind seats can be shifted longitudinally and their chair behind angle adjusted. Sporty sum from a S line extraneous package file a energetic look: S line bumpers front and rear, a diffuser with a double grip during a behind and a singular pattern in a Singleframe grille with several elements in dim chrome.

Convenient: quick charging in only a few hours
The Audi Q5 55 TFSI e quattro** comes customary with a Compact charging complement and a Mode 3 wire with Type 2 block for use during open charging stations. The Compact charging complement comprises cables for domicile and industrial outlets and a control unit. The complement facilities an LED standing arrangement and reserve functions such as feverishness and residual stream monitoring. Audi also offers an discretionary charging clip, a lockable wall-mounted hilt for a charging system. A full assign during a CEE industrial opening with 400 V/16 A takes only 2.5 hours. The integrated horse charges a lithium ion battery with a limit appetite of 7.4 kW. But even during a 220 V domicile outlet, an dull battery can be entirely and conveniently recharged overnight in roughly 6 hours. Convenient recharging is also probable on a road. The exclusive Audi e-tron Charging Service provides entrance to some 100,000 charging points in Europe. A singular label is sufficient to start charging, regardless of a provider.

Charge government from a couch: a myAudi app
The myAudi app allows business to use a services from a Audi bond portfolio on their smartphones, that is quite unsentimental with electrified models. The app can be used to check a battery and operation status, start a charging process, module a assign timer and perspective a assign and expenditure statistics. Furthermore, a track planners in both a app and a MMI navigation in a automobile uncover charging stations.

Another duty of a myAudi app is preheating/precooling before to departure. In this box a meridian control complement compressor and a auxiliary heater in a automobile are powered electrically. The patron can establish accurately how a interior should be exhilarated or cooled while a battery is being charged. Depending on a discretionary apparatus chosen, a same relates to a chair and steering circle heating, heating of a windshield, behind window and mirrors, and a chair cooling.

Orders are now being supposed for a Audi Q5 55 TFSI e quattro** during a bottom cost in Germany of 60,450 euros. Market introduction starts in a third entertain of 2019.

* Information on fuel expenditure and CO2 emissions as good as efficieny classes in ranges depending on a tires and amalgamate circle rims used.
