Audi Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI Quattro Details Surface

Originally published on EV Obsession.

New details have been revealed by Audi about the German company’s upcoming 6-cylinder diesel plug-in hybrid — the Audi Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI Quattro.

System output for the new model is reportedly 373 horsepower and 516 pound-feet (700 Nm) of torque — split between an electric motor accounting for 126 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque, and a turbo diesel engine, reportedly accounting for 258 horsepower and 600 Nm. The model is supposed to feature around 56 kilometers (~35 miles) of all-electric range per full charge. When in all-electric mode, performance is limited to just 126 horsepower peak output.

Accelerating from 0 to 60 miles per hour (0 to 100 kilometers per hour) occurs in just 6 seconds, reportedly.

The Audi Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI Quattro plug-in hybrid (PHEV) is currently scheduled to be released in the European market sometime in early 2016. Starting retail pricing in Germany will reportedly be €80,500.

It will be interesting to see what happens as far as sales go. Given the fact that Audi’s reputation has taken quite a hit as of late (via the Volkswagen Group scandal, of course), and that this PHEV model is a diesel one, I’m skeptical that the sales will be very good.
