Audi freaks know well how exciting the Q5 Hybrid has been. As if to add to the excitement the German car maker is lining up its new A6 Hybrid for 2011. The car that promises to do 0-100 km/h in 7.3 seconds and hit a top speed of 238 km/h (148 mph) is being seen as the hybrid that would make you hit the road at the first possible chance.
As per the first details that have been let out by Audi, the A6 would run a 155 kW (211 PS / 208 hp) 2.0 TFSI petrol engine and a 33 kW (45 PS / 44 hp) electric motor.
Similar to the Q5 Hybrid, indeed. By incorporating these, Audi has given A6 sedan a combined output of 180 kW (245 PS / 241 hp) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque. Doesn’t that sound cool?
Audi has said that the electric motor under the A6 hood will be powered by a 39 kW lithium-ion battery, and would help it kick up speed of up to 100 km/h on electric power alone.
Drive with the petrol engine switched off and you will manage to 3 km just on electric power.
It’s a hybrid, not an EV, and so fuel consumption figures need mention here. The A6 is expected to clock average fuel consumption rating of 6.2 L/100 km (38 US mpg) and CO2 emissions of 142 g/km.
We are now just waiting for the car to launch, which is expected to happen sometime later. Watch the video posted below, in case you would like to see more of the beauty.
