Audi To Launch Q7 E-Tron 3.0TDI Next Week, Will Start From €80,500

European customers will get to order the new Audi Q7 e-tron TDI Quattro from the beginning of March, while the first deliveries will commence in summer.

For €80,500 ($88,605 equivalent), the model is equipped with standard LED headlights, Audi virtual cockpit, MMI navigation plus with MMI all-in-touch, high-res TFT screen with special views such as power meter, energy flow, range and state of battery charge.

The four-ring brand also offers Internet connectivity via the high-speed LTE at no extra cost, Audi Connect e-tron services and Audi MMI Connect app, which allows users to remotely control the charging process, access data related to previous journeys and adjust the climate control.

On its local market, Germany, the “greener” SUV benefits from standard charging cable for public charging stations and one that features power connections for domestic and industrial sockets and contains a graphic display.

Audi claims the SUV “covers large areas of everyday mobility“, thanks to its all-electric range of up to 56 km (35 miles), provided by the 17.3kWh lithium-ion battery. Charging it from an industrial socket takes two and a half hours.

The total output sent to the Quattro AWD system from the plug-in hybrid powertrain is 273 hp and 700 Nm (516lb-ft) of torque, making for a 0-100km/h (0-62 mpg) in 6.2seconds, while its average consumption is just 1.8 lt/100km (130.7 mpg US).
