One of the most popular selling new Audi vehicles, the Q5 has received quite a bit of attention from American consumers. This fall we're going to see a greener side of the second-best selling model - the 2013 Audi Q5 Hybrid.
Your Audi wishes have come true - Audi has proudly exclaimed that the eco-friendly model will make its way to U.S. dealerships, such as Jim Ellis Audi at 1715 Cobb Parkway S in Marietta, GA. The only question now remains, Will the hybrid variant hold its own amongst its already-popular gas-only siblings? Take a look at the following stellar specs and we think the answer will be quite clear...
Built with the automaker's 2.0 TFSI engine and a spunky electric motor, the forthcoming Audi hybrid will deliver a hearty combined output of 245 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. For anyone taking tallies, that number sits somewhere between the current, gas-only model's 2.0 TFSI and 3.2 FSI variants. As for speed, the Audi hybrid hits zero-to-62 miles per hour in a mere 7.1 seconds. Not bad for a hybrid, don't you think?
Building on to its advanced hybrid underpinnings, the 2013 Audi Q5 hybrid boasts a unique instrument panel that allows drivers to visually monitor their electric power. In addition, Audi engineers have equipped the model with regenerative braking, an Audi "connect system" with 3G connectivity, and a wireless hotspot powerful enough to host up to eight connected devices.
As Jim Ellis Audi Marietta mentioned earlier, the 2013 Audi Q5 Hybrid is set to arrive soon, so be sure to stay tuned for the latest Audi information and details as they come.
