Audi A6 Hybrid Will Hit the U.S. Market in 2014
The new hybrid will receive the technological setup from the Q5 Hybrid, that means the A6 Hybrid will receive a 2.0-liter TFSI engine that puts out 208bhp and a 33kW electric motor which will add a plus of 44bhp. The “green-tech” features give the A6 Hybrid an 0-60 acceleration of about 7.3 seconds and economy of 44.1mpg with emissions of 146g/Km of CO2.
The new Audi A6 Hybrid is expected to have a pretty high price for a modest A6, but if you are an “eco-minded” consumer the price of about .$65.000 is not that much to ask in order to save the planet. But Audi also offers a more convenient alternative like the 3.0 TDi quattro A6, that will put out 243bhp and will do 0-60mph in 7.0 seconds with an average of 55mpg. Also worth mentioning the fact that it has higher emissions but it probable set you back with about $8.000 less than the hybrid.
But as we all know America is not such a big fan of diesel engines, so it is expected that the No.1 spot will be still occupied by the 3.0 TFSI Quattro.
