Audi’s refined Q5 SUV is now available in two plug-in hybrid versions. Ideal for drivers who love a sporty SUV but want all the benefits of emissions-free local driving too. Top speed in electric mode is 83.9 mph (135 km/h).
The two versions are Audi Q5 55 TFSI e quattro with 270 kW output and Audi Q5 50 TFSI e quattro with 220 kW output.
The Q5 hybrid features a drive concept comprising of a petrol combustion engine and an electric motor with intelligent controller, enabling the vehicle to seamlessly switch between petrol fuel and electric. This gets you to your destination in the most fuel-efficient mode with ease. A win for the environment and a win for you at the pumps.
Audi Q5 55 TFSI e quattro has an electric range of up to 25.9 miles (WLTP).
A full charge at a CEE industrial outlet with 400 V/16 A takes just 2.5 hours.
The Audi Q5 55 TFSI e quattro comes standard with the Compact charging system plus a Mode 3 cable with Type 2 plug for use at public charging stations. The Compact charging system comprises cables for household and industrial outlets plus a control unit. The system features an LED status display and safety functions such as temperature and residual current monitoring.
The Q5 50 TFSI e quattro accelerates 0-62.1 mph in 6.1 seconds and has a top speed of 148.5 mph.
Plug-in hybrids combine a conventional internal combustion engine (IC engine) and an electric motor supplied with energy from a lithium-ion battery located at the rear. Audi’s smart powertrain management system controls the interaction of the electric motor and the IC engine. It decides when the car will operate in fully electric mode, when energy is recuperated, and when to coast or activate the IC.
The electric driving experience is a quiet, smooth glide. Audi’s powerful electric motor ensures fully electric operation across a large speed range in diverse driving situations.
The battery can be charged at a charging station or power outlet.
Audi offers various solutions for charging at home. The standard mobile charging system can be used with either a 230-volt household outlet or a 400 volt three-phase outlet. The optional “connect” charging system doubles the charging power to as much as 22 kW. Combined with a home energy management system, it offers intelligent functions such as charging when electricity is less expensive or with solar electricity if the home is equipped with a photovoltaic system.
You can control all charging processes as well as pre-heating/pre-cooling via your smartphone with the myAudi app.
Audi has been driving quattro technology forward for 35 years. It is often said that once you drive a quattro you’ll never want to drive anything else. The quattro’s cutting-edge technology offers dynamism and safety, as well as luxurious driving pleasure.
Audi has celebrated numerous motor sport triumphs with quattro technology, but you don’t need to be a world class rallycross driver to get the most out of this efficient hybrid quattro.
