* Angaben zu basement Kraftstoff-/Stromverbräuchen und CO2-Emissionen bei Spannbreiten in Abhängigkeit vom verwendeten Reifen-/Rädersatz sowie von der gewählten Ausstattung.

The drivetrain of a new plug-in hybrid Audi A7 Sportback 55 TFSI e quattro comprises a turbocharged 2-liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine with an outlay of 185 kW (252 PS) and 370 Nm (272.9 lb-ft) of torque and an electric engine (combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km*: 2.1 – 1.9 (112.0 – 123.8 US mpg); total electrical expenditure in kWh/100 km*: 18.1 – 17.5; total CO2 emissions in g/km*: 48 – 44 (77.2 – 70.8 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). Together with a separating clutch, it is integrated into a seven-speed S tronic, that uses ultra record to send a expostulate torque to a quattro ultra drivetrain. Total complement outlay is 270 kW (367 PS); a limit torque of 500 Nm (368.8 lb-ft) is already accessible during usually 1,250 rpm. The A7 PHEV accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 5.7 seconds and reaches a tip speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph). As a association car, a plug-in hybrid indication is theme to a reduce taxation rate in Germany since a electric operation in a WLTP cycle is some-more than 40 kilometers (24.9 mi). The A7 Sportback can expostulate during adult to 135 km/h (83.9 mph) in electric-only mode, creation emissions-free highway pushing easy.

Comprising 104 tote cells, a lithium-ion battery stores 14.1 kWh of appetite during a rated voltage of 381 volts underneath a luggage cell floor. 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 lithium-ion battery is integrated into a back of a automobile next a luggage cell building in such as approach that there is no step in a luggage compartment. Maximum serviceable stowage ability with a back chair folded down is so 1,235 liters (43.6 cu ft).

quattro all-wheel expostulate in a plug-in hybrid

Typically Audi, a A7 Sportback 55 TFSI e** is also versed with quattro all-wheel expostulate with ultra technology. The back spindle is activated lightning quick and predictively as needed. Recuperation of electrical appetite is always around a front axle. The quattro all-wheel expostulate judgment and a altogether judgment of a A7 PHEV so mountain equally for opening and efficiency. With a four-door Gran Turismo, Audi is a usually reward manufacturer in a approach rival sourroundings to offer a plug-in hybrid with all-wheel drive.

Easy operation with 3 pushing modes

The expostulate judgment of a A7 Sportback 55 TFSI e quattro is designed so that business can do a many of their daily pushing electrically. Whether with 0 inner emissions in a city or with high operation on prolonged trips. The multiple of electric engine and inner explosion engine provides for a sportily energetic pushing experience. With a 3 opposite pushing modes, a plug-in hybrid is easy to work in bland use.

The A7 PHEV starts by default in EV mode. This means 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 a second pushing mode, Battery Hold mode, a expostulate government complement binds battery ability during a stream turn so that a tangible stretch can after be lonesome entirely electrically, for instance.

The Hybrid mode is activated possibly automatically together with track superintendence in a navigation complement or by a motorist regulating a handling mode button. In this mode, a A7 PHEV uses a interplay between a electric engine and a inner explosion engine to finish as many pushing segments as probable electrically so that altogether fuel expenditure during a finish of a outing is as low as possible. For instance, stop-and-go trade in cities can be driven electrically for a many part. Depending on a situation, a complement chooses between freewheeling with a engine switched off and coasting recuperation. Up to 35 kW of appetite can be recovered with a latter. 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.

Predictive handling plan and predictive potency assist

For limit potency a A7 uses predictive expostulate government – a predictive handling strategy. It uses information from a predictive potency support also found in other Audi mid- and full-size category models to control a electric motor, lithium-ion battery and a inner explosion engine.

If track superintendence is active in a MMI navigation system, a predictive handling plan controls a drivetrain so that a final civic territory of a track can be driven exclusively electrically and a Audi A7 PHEV arrives during a finish with a expostulate battery scarcely empty. If a A7 Sportback TFSI e approaches a town, a expostulate government charges a battery so that a final civic territory can be driven electrically. The motorist can so use all of a electric appetite to expostulate with 0 inner emissions on entering a town.

Drive government is tranquil on a basement of a vast volume of data. The predictive handling plan uses dual forms of data, nearby margin and track information, for severe and pointing formulation of a route. The severe formulation is formed on 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. The expostulate controller’s severe formulation is therefore formed essentially on track information along a driven route, such as trade flow, topography and highway type. Precision planning, with that a A7 manages a expostulate controller in a stream pushing situation, is achieved by a predictive potency partner (PEA) found in other Audi mid- and large-size category models.

The predictive potency partner adjusts coasting recuperation duty to a pushing conditions during hand. It uses a predicted 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.

A haptic beat from a active accelerator pedal and an visual vigilance in a motorist information complement arrangement as good as a discretionary head-up arrangement yield additional support for a biggest probable efficiency. The active accelerator pedal has both a haptic vigour indicate that signals a finish of electric-only pushing and haptic feedback that signals a motorist to take their feet off of a accelerator.

Convenient: quick charging in a brief time

The charging complement compress comes customary with a Audi A7 Sportback 55 TFSI e quattro**. A Mode 3 wire with Type 2 block for use during open charging terminals is accessible as an option. The charging complement compress comprises cables for domicile and industrial outlets and a control unit. The complement facilities an LED station arrangement and reserve functions such as feverishness and residual stream monitoring. Audi offers a shave wall mount, a lockable hilt for a charging system, as an option.

A full assign during a three-phase CEE industrial opening with 400 volts and 16 amperes per proviso takes usually approximately 2.5 hours. The automobile charges with a limit of 7.4 kW. Even a 230 volt domicile opening can recharge an dull battery entirely and conveniently overnight in approximately 7 hours. Convenient recharging is also probable on a road. The exclusive Audi e-tron Charging Service provides entrance to some-more than 100,000 charging points in Europe. A singular label is sufficient to start charging, regardless of a provider.

A consistent eye on a state of charge: 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 pre-entry meridian control before environment off. The atmosphere conditioning compressor and a auxiliary heater in a automobile are electrically powered. 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, back window and mirrors, and a chair cooling.

Clever thermal management

The atmosphere conditioning works together with a rarely fit feverishness pump, enabling a automobile to make good use of a rubbish feverishness from a electric expostulate train. This is quite careful and not usually enables a interior to be exhilarated or cooled quickly, though also a high electric operation even during quite high or low outside temperatures.

Sporty coming and comprehensively equipped

The Audi A7 Sportback 55 TFSI e** not usually scores points opposite a approach competitors with sporty performance, though also with a together energetic coming package and extensive list of customary equipment. The customary S line extraneous package total with a black styling package and a remoteness glazing underscore a sporty altogether sense of a four-door Gran Turismo even when station still.

HD Matrix LED headlights, competition seats, four-zone involuntary atmosphere conditioning, preference key, Audi practical cockpit, PHEV-specific displays, 19-inch, multi-spoke wheels and red stop calipers front and back are standard.
