Audi Starts Taking Orders for All-New Q7, Prices it from €60,900 in Germany

Audi has begun taking orders across Europe for the all-new Q7 SUV, which has a base price of €60,900 ($64,388) in Germany.

While advance sales have begun today, the first Audi Q7 models won’t reach European dealerships before June. The €60,900 base price corresponds to the Q7 3.0 TDI model with 272PS (268hp), while the 333PS (328hp) 3.0 TFSI model starts from €62,900 ($66,576). Both prices are for the German market and include 19 percent VAT.

For the moment, these are the only engines on offer in Europe, both mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Later on, Audi will also offer a more frugal, but less powerful 3.0 TDI Ultra diesel engine with 218PS (215hp). In select Asian markets in the United States, the Q7 will also be available with a 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder gasoline engine with 252PS (248hp). In late 2015, the Audi Q7 E-Tron plug-in hybrid will also join the range.

The second-generation Audi Q7 is lighter, more efficient and more spacious than the previous model. It weighs up to 325 kg (716 lbs) less, with Audi saying it is one of the lightest vehicles in its class. As a result, it is up to 28 percent more fuel efficient as well.

The vehicle features a host of new driver assistance systems and a series of infotainment options, such as the Audi virtual cockpit.

Since the first-generation Audi Q7 launched in 2006, more than 500,000 units were sold worldwide.
