In purely electric mode, the Audi Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI quattro achieves a range of up to 56 kilometres in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC), making local journeys emission-free. It is also the first plug-in hybrid in the world to feature a V6 TDI and quattro drive. The SUV sets standards thanks to 373 hp of system power and 700 Nm of system torque. It accelerates from a standing start to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds and consumes only 1.8 litres of diesel in accordance with NEDC. Its lithium-ion battery can be charged from the socket and stores 17.3 kWh. With its electric range of up to 56 kilometres, the SUV covers large areas of everyday mobility. The starting price in Ireland is €84,475 OTR including all available government grants. 19” e-tron specific alloys, MMI navigation plus with MMI all in touch and the Audi virtual cockpit are among the features included. The high-resolution TFT screen provides pin-sharp displays and graphics, including special views such as the power-meter, the energy flow of the plug-in hybrid system, the range and the state of charge of the high-voltage battery.
Standard items also include a charging cable for public charging stations and a charging cable that not only features power connections for domestic and industrial sockets, but also a graphic display. Thanks to the new two-phase charging technology, full charging from an industrial socket with an output of 7.2 kW only takes around two and a half hours.
The standard thermal management system with integrated heat pump has been specially developed for the plug-in hybrids of the Q7 family. Audi is the first manufacturer in the world to market this technology. This represents another benchmark achieved by the brand in terms of electric range, interior comfort and climate control efficiency.
The Audi connect module links the Q7 e-tron quattro to the internet via the high-speed LTE standard. A new standard feature is the “Audi connect safety & service”. With the Audi connect e-tron services and the Audi MMI connect app, a smartphone can be used to remotely control the charging process and interior climate control, and to access data relating to previous journeys.
