The Audi Q5 hybrid quattro combines the performance of a six-cylinder with the fuel economy of a four-cylinder. The highly variable interior offers plenty of room for recreation and family. The vehicle is powered by a 2.0 TFSI producing 155 kW (211 hp) and an electric motor producing 40 kW (54 hp). This combination provides for a system output of 180 kW (245 hp). The average NEDC fuel consumption is just 6.9 liters per 100 km (34.09 US mpg).
The Audi Q5 hybrid quattro is 4.63 meters (15.19 ft) long and 1.90 meters (6.23 ft) wide, but only 1.63 meters (5.35 ft) high, giving it the sportiest proportions in its market category. Its drag coefficient of just 0.32 also represents a top figure for its category. The design is elegant and sculptured – typical for Audi, which is the leading brand in this domain.
The wheelbase measuring 2.81 meters (9.22 ft) provides for a generously spacious interior. The seats are ergonomically shaped and versatile in their layout. The angle of the rear seat backs can be adjusted, and they can be laid flat very easily – it suffices to operate the release catches in the cargo area so that they can be folded down onto the seat cushions. This increases the cargo volume from 460 to 1,480 liters (16.24 – 52.27 cu ft). The lithium-ion battery cells are located in a crash-proof area beneath the cargo floor, minimizing their impact on the cargo volume.
The body of the Audi Q5 hybrid quattro contains a high proportion of high-strength and ultra-high-strength steel components. These reduce weight while simultaneously improving crash safety, rigidity and vibrational behavior. The front seat belt force limiters and airbags act together in a new, highly intelligent way.
The chassis also underscores the dynamic character of the Audi Q5 hybrid quattro. Ride height was lowered by 25 mm (0.98 in) to reduce driving resistances. The direct steering ratio closely connects the driver to the road. The five-link front suspension and trapezoidal-link rear suspension are made substantially from aluminum, and the low-mounted electromechanical steering gear transmits steering wheel movements directly to the wheels. Large, 17-inch brakes provide for powerful deceleration. 19-inch alloy wheels with 235/55 tires are standard, with wheels measuring up to 20 inches in diameter available from Audi as options.
The Audi Q5 hybrid quattro also has the sportiest proportions in its vehicle segment. It measures 4.63 meters (15.19 ft) in length and 1.90 meters (6.23 ft) in width, but only 1.63 meters (5.35 ft) in height. Its body design comes across as powerful, athletic and emotionally charged. With the new Q5 hybrid quattro, the Audi brand once again underscores its leadership in automotive design.
The body is unusually light in weight; the tailgate and the engine hood are aluminum. The rigid body shell incorporates hot-stamped steel in numerous places, combining low weight with very high strength. Despite the generous level of standard equipment, the Q5 hybrid quattro with its curb weight of 1,910 kg (4,210 lb) is the lightest hybrid SUV on the world market. All its hybrid components add less than 130 kg (287 lb) of extra weight.
The Audi Q5 hybrid quattro is the performance SUV for a dynamic, active clientele – it displays all the talents needed in a vehicle designed for sports, family and recreational use. Its buyers are people with a high level of education who value an active lifestyle. Audi Q5 hybrid quattro customers view their car as an expression of their individuality and consequently attach great importance to attractive design, sportiness and performance.
The interior of the Audi Q5 hybrid quattro is like a perfectly tailored suit – it is airy but cut to fit perfectly. The statistics prove how spacious it is: elbow room is 1,527 millimeters (60.12 in) up front and 1,494 millimeters (58.82 in) in the rear. The Audi Q5 hybrid quattro also has an exceptional amount of front headroom – 1,043 millimeters (41.06 in).
A lithium-ion battery system, weighing a mere 36.7 kg (80.91 lb), serves as the energy store for the electric motor of the Audi Q5 hybrid quattro. The compact unit with its 26 liter (6.87 US gallon) capacity is positioned in a crash-safe area under the cargo floor, with hardly any intrusion on the cargo area. The battery consists of 72 cells. At 266 volts, its nominal energy is 1.3 kWh and its output 39 kW.
An electromechanical unit serves as the steering system, with a small electric motor generating the power. The system operates at high efficiency, since it need not consume any energy in straight-ahead driving. This low energy consumption improves the Audi Q5 hybrid quattro’s fuel efficiency by about 0.2 liters per 100 km [Source: Audi].
