Audi Q5 E Quattro Plug-In-Hybrid SUV 2020 Review and Price
The car manufacturing world is getting more and more electrified these years and luxury sport brands like Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche are developing new and smarter "green vehicles" with fully electric drive-trains and plug-in hybrid drive trains. And now it is time for the Audi Q5 premium SUV to get some greener engine in the shape of a plug-in-hybrid drivetrain. And why not!? In many countries a regular TFSI 3.0 engine is very expensive because of the high C02 emission, but with a plug-in hybrid is should be lower and cheaper to drive, both when it comes to emission taxes and daily fuel consumption. So here are some numbers to consider when cheking out this Compact SUV.
The new plug-in hybrid setup enables the Audi Q5 to offer a combined output of 362 hp (270 kW) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm). The electrified engine will enable it to sprint to 62 mph (100 kph) in only 5.3 seconds and a top speed of 149 mph (239 kph), and that is not bad at all, given the vehicle’s size, weight and the relatively small four-cylinder engine. (small if you like V6 or V8 engines, but honestly not for regular driving....)
And here we properly have to most important information regarding this new Audi Q5 PHEV and that is how cheap will it be to drive? Audi promises the new Q5 55 TFSI E Quattro can return as much as 112 miles per gallon or consume as low as 2.1 liters / 100 km in the combined cycle. That can be translated to CO2 emissions of only 46 g/km when used as a plug-in hybrid, while in fully electric mode it can travel for more than 26 miles (40 kilometers) based on the new WLTP cycle (EU). If you switch off the combustion petrol TFSI engine it will top out at 84 mph (135 kph). That zero-emissions range is guaranteed by a lithium-ion battery pack with a 14.1-kWh capacity stored underneath the trunk’s floor. It takes only two and a half hours to fully charge the batteries through a 400 V/16 outlet while from a household socket it needs approximately six hours. A Convenient recharging is also possible on the road. The proprietary Audi e-tron Charging Service provides access to some 100,000 charging points in Europe.
So this is definitely a car that will appeal to many people who can't afford an Audi e-tron but still want's a low fuel driving premium car. This will sell really well in Europe and China where the road taxes for driving cars with big engines and high C02 emission are just getting higher and higher, while if you have a car with low or zero emission you will get rewarded. This SUV will reward you! This Audi Q5 plug-in-hybrid will come with a DSG7 clutch (seven-speed S tronic gearbox and AWD. If you are in Europe you can order it already and the price starts at around 60.000 euros.

Volkswagen Touareg vs Audi Q8 Comparison Review
Theses two large premium SUVs are nearly identically. Both top of the range with R-line ad Sport-line. They are both from the VW Group, but Audi is more expensive as the more premium luxury brand. The VW Touareg is also pricey, but properly better value for the money. VW Group also made another top sporty luxury SUV with same dimension and that is the Lamborghini Urus, that is much more expense than these two "siblings" . But one can argue that the Audi Q8 drives better than the Lamborghini Urus! These car share a lot of the same built materials and even engines, transmissions. Which one do you like?
