Audi A6 Hybrid Visits Copenhagen [Video]
The A6 Hybrid is their second ever production hybrid model after he Q5 hybrid quattro. It employs a 2.0 TFSI combustion petrol engine that works together with the electric motor that delivers an extra 45 hp (33 kW) and 211 Nm (155.63 lb-ft) of torque.
A crash-protected area of the luggage compartment houses a light, compact lithium-ion battery that provides 1.3 kWh of power delivered at 39 kW of energy. Thanks to this, the A6 hybrid will do 100 km/h in purely electric mode. At a constant speed of 60 km/h (37.28 mph), Audi engineers found it has a range of 3 km.
Audi’s claim is that this system makes as much power as a V6 engine. It accelerates in 7.3 seconds from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph), top speed is 238 km/h (148 mph) and the average fuel consumption is 6.2 liters per 100 km (37 mpg US).
