The Audi Q7 improves its plug-in hybrid versions

When you see the acronyms TFSIe in a 2024 Audi Q7 means that you are looking at one of the plug-in hybrid versions. Compared to its predecessor, it has a lithium-ion battery and more efficient driving modes. Choosing this premium SUV with this propulsion system is not cheap, since part of €87,240. It hit the market in April 2024

The two versions share the 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine with 250 kW (340 HP) of power, a compact electric motor (PSM) with a maximum power of 130 kW and 460 Nm of torque. Under the boot floor is the new, more powerful, liquid-cooled lithium battery. It is made up of 17 cells of 70 Ah each, works at 370 volts and has 25.9 gross kWh (22 kWh net) capacity, with which it homologates 84 km of electric range (90 km in urban areas). These are the two versions:

  • Q7 55 TFSIe quattro: Engrega 394 hp (290 kW), with a maximum torque of 600 Nm. They accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds. 87,240 euros with advanced finish.
  • Q7 60 TFSIe quattro: Develop together until 490 hp of power (360 kW) and 700 Nm of torque. Goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.0 seconds. 102,640 euros with black line finish

Both limit their electronically limited top speed to 240 km/h, with a top speed in electric propulsion mode of 135 km/h.

The battery supports charging powers of up to 7.4kW (100% in about 3 hours and 45 minutes). The brand offers the service Audi charging to access 630,000 charging points in 29 countries. Otherwise, there are three power management modes:

  • EV mode: Fully electric, even if you step on the accelerator.
  • Hybrid mode: With two operating possibilities: car (automatic predictive operation when starting navigation and hold (maintains battery charge, with minimal fluctuations).
  • Charge Mode: the battery is recharged intelligently, only when exceeding 65 km/h to maximize efficiency using only the recovery system. It ends when recharging 75% of the battery.

When you lift your foot off the accelerator, the predictive efficiency assistant is activated, which takes into account navigation data, distance to the preceding vehicle to recover up to 25 kW of power and return it to the lithium-ion battery. Operating as a generator, the electric motor performs all light and moderate braking up to 0.3 g (more than 90% of all decelerations in daily driving, with up to 80 kW of recovery power during braking).

Standard equipment now includes, among other items, 19 to 21-inch alloy wheels (depending on model and equipment package), rear view camera, parking assistant, high beam assistant and comfort key. On the 60 TFSIe quattro, the S line exterior line and the sports package are standard. All models include a Mode 3 charging cable.

In addition, the Audi Q7 TFSIe equipment can have HD Matrix LED headlights as an option, which allow the light signature to be changed. In the Q7 60 TFSIe, air suspension is part of the standard equipment. For the first time in plug-in hybrids, four-wheel steering is offered (optional).
