The new Audi A6 L e-tron for China

Posted on 16. Apr, 2015 by in Audi Canada

After rising a e-tron epoch in China with a alien A3 Sportback e-tron* in 2015, Audi is holding a subsequent step with a internal prolongation of a A6 L e-tron commencement in 2016. The indication is formed on a prolonged chronicle of a Audi A6, that is already built in China, and is configured as a rarely fit together hybrid, clarification that a dual drives are organised one directly behind a other. The 2.0 TFSI is a state-of-the-art, four-cylinder, gasoline engine producing 155 kW (211 hp) and 350 Nm (258.1 lb-ft) of torque. The disk-shaped electric engine provides 91 kW and 220 Nm (162.3 lb-ft) of torque. Together with a decoupler, this is integrated into a eight-speed tiptronic transmission, that transfers a appetite to a front wheels. System outlay is 180 kW (245 hp); limit complement torque is 500 Nm (368.8 lb-ft).

Sporty performance, low consumption
The Audi A6 L e-tron, that has a quell weight of usually over 2,000 kilograms (4,409.2 lb), delivers sporty performance: The scurry from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) takes usually 8.4 seconds, and tip speed is singular to 210 km/h (130.5 mph). According to a dimensions process prescribed in China for plug-in hybrid vehicles, it consumes usually 2.2 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (106.9 US mpg), analogous to 52 grams CO2 per kilometer (83.7 g/mi). The Audi A6 L e-tron 2.0 TFSI covers 50 kilometers (31.1 mi) quite on electric appetite and with 0 internal emissions. It therefore meets a Chinese clarification of a New Energy Vehicle. Total operation is 880 kilometers (546.8 mi).

Its lithium-ion battery comprises 104 cells and stores 14.1 kWh of energy. Located underneath a luggage compartment, a battery reduces a volume usually rather — ability is 340 liters (11.9 cu ft). The automobile so offers sufficient stowage space for longer trips. The new two-phase charging record allows charging with 7.2 kW of power. With a suitable infrastructure (high-power industrial outlet) and high-power charging cable, a batteries can be entirely charged in roughly dual hours. On a standard domicile opening in China, a procession takes rather longer than 8 hours, and can so simply be achieved overnight.

Electric pushing during adult to 135 km/h (83.9 mph)
The intelligent hybrid government complement controls a handling states of a Audi A6 L e-tron. The motorist can select between 4 pushing modes. “EV” (electric vehicle) mode prioritizes electric pushing during adult to 135 km/h (83.9 mph). In “hybrid” mode, a hybrid government complement chooses a expostulate form for a best probable efficiency. In “battery hold” mode, a complement stores a accessible electrical appetite and charges a battery in “battery charge” mode. The sedan can seashore in hybrid mode — when a motorist takes his or her feet off of a accelerator, both drives are deactivated. The electric engine assumes many of a braking, charging a battery. The hydraulic brakes are used usually for complicated braking.

Controls and displays
The displays of a Audi A6 L e-tron yield minute information about a standing of a drivetrain and a battery charge. The powermeter in a instrument cluster displays a sum complement output. The guard for a MMI navigation and visualizes a appetite flows in a hybrid system; operation and expenditure total for electricity and gasoline are displayed in a motorist information system.

A array of visible cues brand a plug-in hybrid models from Audi. The 18-inch amalgamate wheels underline a ethereal e-tron design, and LED light guides in a atmosphere inlets beget a signature of staggered lines. e-tron badges accoutre a fenders and a case lid; a diffuser conceals a empty complement tailpipes.

All a strengths of a A6 indication series*
Elegant design, a magnificently atmospheric and cultivated interior, high float comfort, comprehensively versed and modernized infotainment — a Audi A6 L e-tron offers all of a strengths of a successful A6 indication series. It will be constructed by an Audi corner try with FAW-Volkswagen in a northern Chinese city of Changchun, and will be launched on a Chinese marketplace in 2016.

Fuel expenditure of a models named above:

Audi A3 Sportback e-tron:
Combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 1.7 – 1.5** (138.4 – 156.8 US mpg);
ombined appetite expenditure in Wh/km: 124 – 114**;
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 39 – 35** (62.8 – 56.3 g/mi)

Audi A6:
Combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 9.6 – 4.2** (24.5 – 56.0 US mpg);
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 224 – 109** (360.5 – 175.4 g/mi)

**The fuel expenditure and a CO2 emissions of a car change due to a choice of wheels and tires. They not usually count on a fit function of a fuel by a vehicle, though are also shabby by pushing function and other non-technical factors.
