Audi has continued its move to electrify its range with the unveiling of the A6 55 TFSI e quattro plug-in hybrid.
The powertrain consists of a 2.0-litre 185kW turbocharged petrol engine and a 105kW electric motor integrated into the seven-speed S tronic transmission. In total, the system produces 270kW of power and 500Nm of torque.
In terms of performance, Audi claims the A6 55 TFSI e quattro can sprint from 0-100km/h in 5.6 seconds on its way to a top speed of 250km/h.
According to the WLTP cycle, when the 14.1kWh lithium-ion battery pack is fully charged an electric driving range of 53 kilometres is possible. In EV mode, the car can run to a top speed of 135km/h.
Owners can use public charging stations up to an output of 7.4kW using the supplied mode 3 cable. Audi claims it takes roughly two-and-a-half hours to recharge from empty.
In European markets standard equipment includes the S line exterior package, the black styling package, privacy glass, Matrix LED headlights, sport seats, four-zone automatic air conditioning, Audi’s virtual cockpit, sport suspension, 19-inch wheels and red brake calipers.
At this stage, the A6 55 TFSI e quattro isn’t headed Down Under. Locally, Audi’s electric range will begin with the e-tron SUV.
