The 2022 Audi Q5 PHEV offers impressive efficiencyJun 16th, 2022
The 2022 Audi Q5 55 TFSI e is a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) compact premium SUV that benefits from all of the comfort, luxury, and practicality of a vehicle of its size category while offering a fuel efficiency that beats almost every subcompact vehicle.
The electric range
The 2022 Audi Q5 PHEV can boast a very high fuel efficiency since it is able to drive entirely on electric power for 37 kilometers before using the first drop of fuel on every trip when the battery is charged. This means that most of your daily driving needs can be met entirely with the electric drivetrain while the gasoline engine is always there as a backup that allows you to go anywhere without worrying about having to find a charging station to continue on your way.
The advanced TFSI engine
Even when its gasoline engine is needed, the 2022 Audi Q5 PHEV remains very economical due to the low fuel consumption of its advanced TFSI engine that benefits from the presence of direct fuel injection and a turbocharger. This translates into fuel consumption figures of only 9.4L / 100 kilometers in the city and 8.8L / 100 kilometers on the highway once the battery is depleted, which is better than most of its gasoline-powered rivals.
The combination of electric and combustion power
When operating in hybrid mode, the powertrain used in the 2022 Audi Q5 PHEV gives it a high level of performance, with its 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque that powers the Q5 up to 100 km/h in only 5.3 seconds. By using the electrification to its advantage, the Q5 can deliver an instant throttle response and strong low-speed torque. Despite this, the combined fuel consumption can average as little as 3.9 Le/100 kilometers by prioritizing the electric power and using the gasoline engine when bursts of power are needed to accelerate or merge.
