Do Audi Make a Hybrid Vehicle?

Audi is one of the world’s leading automakers. For that reason, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that the company now makes a range of hybrid and electric vehicles, including the E-Tron, one of the most exciting in the company’s range.

The Audi hybrid range emerged nearly a decade ago. Since, then the German brand has been perfecting its line-up, the precursors to Audi electric cars. Now the company offers some of the most compelling vehicles on the market, designed to reduce carbon emissions and increase fuel efficiency.

You can quickly identify Audi’s selection of hybrid vehicles by their TFSI e moniker. TFSI stands for the turbocharged petrol engine, and the “e” denotes the electric component on the drivetrain. The use of the two together is what makes these Audi vehicles “hybrid.”

Audi A7 Sportback 55 TFSI e

The Audi A7 Sportback TFSI e is one of the most impressive hybrid models in the Audi range, perfect for people who do a lot of driving in city environments. The Audi PHEV will do anywhere from 134.5 to 141.2 miles per gallon under “average driving conditions” and releases less than 48 g/CO2 into the atmosphere per mile. It, therefore, qualifies for low motor vehicle tax.

Audi Q5 TFSI e

The Audi Q5 is the company’s answer to a city-going crossover. It is one of the most popular of all Audi plug-in hybrid vehicles, thanks to its versatility and interior space.

What about the range of the vehicle?

Here is where the benefits of hybrid really stand out.  The car will do about 26 miles using its hybrid motor - enough for most trips into town - and then will switch to its TFSI motor once the battery runs dry, like all Audi hybrid cars.

Audi E-Tron

Audi, of course, doesn’t just make hybrids. To keep up with the times, the company also now makes all-electric vehicles.

The Audi E-Tron is the electric car in the range - the forerunner of all Audi electric vehicles to come.

The all-electric maintains the same trademark Audi quality but instead features an electric motor for zero carbon emissions on the road, no matter how much you use it. Tax costs on the vehicle are low, even compared to some Audi hybrid vehicles and the performance is high.

The Audi E-Tron uses two, 300 kW engines that it connects to its traditional Quattro powertrain. The car isn’t designed explicitly at electric-enthusiasts, but anyone who wants to experience a high-performance vehicle with an electric setup. While the technology might seem new, Audi and its partners have been working on their battery supply chain for a long time, making the emergence of the E-Tron almost inevitable. You won’t experience any reduction in performance using this vehicle compared to the petrol rival.

The new E-Tron comes with all-wheel drive, Matrix LED headlights and a range of smart driving technologies that’ll help you park when you visit the supermarket. This new vehicle is an example of electric mobility at its finest.
