Audi has a series of novelties for the Q5, A6 and A7 Sportback. The plug-in hybrid versions come fully electrically further than before and a new plug-in is added to the range of the A6.
The plug-in hybrid versions of the Audi Q5, A6 and A7 Sportback all get a new battery pack. For the Q5, the change is related to the facelift, the Q5 Sportback is completely new and also immediately receives the larger battery pack. Instead of the battery pack with a gross capacity of 14.1 kWh, there is now a battery that consumes 17.9 kWh gross. This also applies to the plug-in hybrid versions of the A6 and A7 Sportback. Audi already reported that the Q5 and Q5 Sportback as plug-ins can drive up to 62 kilometers fully electric according to the WLTP cycle. That is more than 20 kilometers more than before the facelift. The prices are already known.
The A6 Sedan 50 TFSI-e has the largest all-electric range of the mentioned models. With the new battery pack, this comes up to a maximum of 73 km (WLTP), 18 km further than was previously possible. Despite its larger capacity, the new battery pack has not grown in size, according to Audi. You therefore do not give up luggage space. At its fastest, with 7.4 kW charging capacity, the new battery pack can be hunted with full power in 2.5 hours. If you connect it to the mains at home, it will take you a little more than 8 hours.
There is more news for the A6, because it also gets a plug-in hybrid version. To date, the A6 is available as Sedan and Avant as 367 hp 55 TFSI-e and the milder 299 hp 50 TFSI-e is still reserved for the Sedan. This is about to change; the A6 Avant will also receive the less powerful plug-in hybrid version. Of course, that also reduces the starting price for an A6 Avant with plug. As a 55 TFSI-e, it must now cost more than € 83,000, but as a 50 TFSI-e, it will probably cost roughly € 10,000 from that price. The exact Dutch price is not yet known at this time.
