Audi Q7 E-tron Is A New Hybrid Showing Outstanding 117 MPG


In 2015 in Geneva at the exhibition presented Audi Q7 e-tron of 2017 model year. This is a new model in the lineup. This, first, we can say, electric hybrid, it combines an electric motor and a diesel engine. Q7 e-tron is more modern and environmentally friendly.

E-Tron Means a Hybrid

Of course, the most important thing in this car is its technical component. As mentioned above, transport to the will is environmentally friendly, and what needs to be evaluated directly in the first turn is eco-friendly – high fuel efficiency.

The car is equipped with a 3-liter six-cylinder turbo diesel engine that generates up to 258 horsepower and plus an electric motor (you can charge from the most common outlet, but it takes a lot of time, and if you use a special 2.5 hours and voila, the battery is charged).

If you combine these two motors, then in total comes about 373 horsepower with a torque of 516 ft lb, which makes it possible for 6 seconds to accelerate to sixty miles per hour (just like a sports car). The maximum speed is 140 miles per hour, and the fuel consumption will exceed 117 mpg in combined cycle.

The car has an eight-speed automatic transmission. And also within 34 miles this car can pass on the electric motor. Summarizing the power reserve, you can see that this figure reaches 870 miles, which gives its privileges on long trips. Still, the center of gravity, the electromechanical power steering and the light suspension are understated.

Just a Normal Q7

On the face of this Audi is similar to its gasoline predecessor. In front of all the emphasis is on the huge bumper and air intakes, and of course the radiator grille, covered with chrome, which has the shape of a hexagon. But LED lights, fog lights, side body and bottom protection, everything, as on the previous model without the slightest change.

The changes were not bypassed and the rear bumper, especially the unusual mirrors for the rear view, as if produced as something inherent from the car, look very harmonious. And in general Audi Q7 e-tron looks much softer and “benevolent”, rather than the entire line. The car came out nice to look at, and more versatile than just an SUV.

A Neat Touch

The salon has also been modified, albeit not significantly. As the manufacturers themselves say: firstly, this model almost completely follows the gasoline car; And secondly – whether it is necessary to correct, which is so perfect? Complete with Audi Q7 e-tron of the 2017 model year multifunction steering wheel, digital panel and on-board computer. The interior is roomy.

The instrument panel has changed. The volume of the trunk is 73.2 cu ft with all seats folded. Also included is a 12.3-inch display, and of course the inputs and outputs for the Bang & Olufsen audio system, which is very expensive. It has 23 speakers and a total of about 1900 watts.

In addition to all of the above, the panorama roof and seats with a massage will still surprise you. Well, there are many other functions and systems in this wonderful car.
