Audi is now also offering its successful full-size station wagon A6 Avant as a plug-in hybrid: The new A6 Avant 55 TFSI e quattro has a system output of 270 kW (367 PS) (combined fuel consumption in l/100 km (US mpg): 2.1–1.9 (112.0–123.8); combined electric power consumption in kWh/100 km*: 18.1–17.6; combined CO2 emissions in g/km* (g/mi): 48–44 (77.2–70.8)). Its drive concept combines a 2.0 TFSI engine with 185 kW (252 PS) of output and 370 Nm (272.9 lb-ft) of torque with a powerful electric motor. The permanently excited synchronous machine has a peak output of 105 kW and a peak torque of 350 Nm (258.1 lb-ft). The system torque already reaches its maximum of 500 Nm (368.8 lb-ft) at a speed of 1,250 rpm.
The electric range of the Audi A6 Avant 55 TFSI e quattro ** is up to 51 kilometers (31.7 mi) in the WLTP cycle. Its top speed is 250 km/h (155.3 mph) – in electric-only mode, the plug-in hybrid can reach a speed of up to 135 km/h (83.9 mph) (combined fuel consumption in l/100 km [US mpg]: 2.1–1.9 (112.0–123.8); combined electric power consumption in kWh/100 km*: 18.1–17.6; combined CO2 emissions in g/km* (g/mi): 48–44 (77.2–70.8)).
Autonomous – drive management and predictive operating strategy
The drive concept of the Audi PHEV model is designed so that customers can do most of their daily driving electrically and therefore with zero local emissions. They can choose between the three drive modes “EV” for all-electric driving, “Hybrid” for the efficient combination of both drive types and “Hold” to conserve the electrical energy available at any given time.
In “Hybrid” mode, the predictive operating strategy ensures maximum efficiency and the maximum possible amount of electric driving. It controls the drivetrain so that the last stage of the journey before getting to the destination can be covered in all-electric mode and the battery is charged up beforehand via the combustion engine where necessary.
Connected and comfortable – charging equipment and charging management
Customers can use the myAudi app to manage charging and pre-entry climate control even before they set off. With the standard mode 3 cable, customers can charge the plug-in hybrid at public charging terminals with an output of up to 7.4 kW. The myAudi app is equipped with a route planner that shows where the terminals are.
The lithium-ion battery, which is placed in the rear of the vehicle, stores 14.1 kWh of energy: It is integrated so that the luggage compartment still provides a level and convenient luggage space. The luggage capacity is 405 liters (14.3 cu ft) as standard – without a step in the loading floor. When the rear seat backrest is folded down, the luggage capacity is up to 1,535 liters (54.2 cu ft).
Elegant and sporty – design and equipment
The A6 Avant 55 TFSI e quattro** with a sporty design includes the S line exterior package, the black styling package, black exterior mirrors and privacy glazing as standard for a particularly dynamic appearance.
The base price for the Audi A6 Avant 55 TFSI e quattro** is EUR 71.940.
