Audi unveiled its plug-in hybrid (PHEV) concept. Modern technologies combine the use of a conventional combustion engine and an electric motor powered by an ionic battery. The electric motor allows you to significantly reduce harmful emissions and save fuel use, and the internal combustion engine will not worry about long battery charging or lack of power. The electric motor also allows energy to be stored in the batteries when using the internal combustion engine.
Audi uses motors in electric drive mode with power up to 105 kW, depending on the car model. The smart system allows optimal switching between electric and combustion engine modes, determining when to store charge in the batteries, when to use electric drive, and when to use the vehicle's inertia. When measured according to the model WLTP cycle Audi PHEVs achieve an electric range of up to 59 kilometers.
Audi PHEVs have a charging power of up to 7,4 kW, which allows hybrid vehicles to be charged in 2,5 hours. In addition, it is possible to charge a car on the road - the branded e-tron from Audi is about 137 charging points in 000 European countries. In addition to the convenient charging system with cable for residential and industrial outlets, all PHEV models come standard with a Mode-25 cable with Type-3 plug for public charging stations.
