Audi A5 e-Tron Quattro Plug-in Hybrid
Audi А5 e-Tron Quattro Plug-in Hybrid Prototype has not only an incredibly long name, but it also features some very good qualities.
The car is powered by a 2.0 liter TFSI engine developing 211PS (155 kW) and two electric motors, one on the front axle, which adds 45PS (33 kW) and one on the rear axle adding another 81PS (60 kW). The second electric motor delivers power only when acceleration requires it to or when sensors detect a loss of rear traction such as in a hard curve. There is also a 9.4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack.
А5 e-Tron Quattro Plug-in Hybrid can go only on electricity up to 40 km (25 miles) with speeds up to 100 km/h (62 mph). The fuel consumption is staggering – 2.7 liters per 100 km and the acceleration is 5.9 seconds to 100 km/h. The top speed is 228 km/h (142 mph). Not bad for a hybrid car!
Audi А5 e-Tron Quattro Plug-in Hybrid Prototype has a curb weight of 1 600kg, which is the same as standard 2.0 TFSI A5 Quattro. The engineers used a lot of carbon fiber and aluminum parts to achieve this result.
Looks like, we all gonna drive plug-in hybrids in the near future, which will be faster and more agile than our current vehicles.
