2012 Audi A6 Hybrid: official details and specs released

Article by Christian A., on December 1, 2010

As you may know already, earlier today Audi introduced the brand new 2012 A6 sedan and made quite a buzz, but it appears that this is not the only new model as the German manufacturer also announced the introduction of the A6 Hybrid, its second hybrid model after the Q5 hybrid Quattro.

As expected, the new car will receive the same technology like the Q5 hybrid Quattro, which means we will see a 155 kW (211 hp) 2.0 TFSI engine, as well as an electric motor delivering 33 kW (45 hp) and 211 Nm (155.63 lb-ft) of torque.

According to Audi, the electric motor is situated directly behind the TFSI, occupying the space of the torque converter upstream of the modified 8-speed tiptronic.

The transmission sends torque to the front wheels. Regarding the performances of the car, the Audi A6 hybrid can achieve speeds of up to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) purely on electricity and has a range of 3 km at a constant speed of 60 km/h (37.28 mph).

Moreover, the car can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 7.3 seconds and has a top speed of 238 km/h (147.89 mph).

Furthermore, the average fuel consumption is 6.2 liters per 100 km (37.94 US mpg). The A6 Hybrid will also deliver a CO2 emissions level of 142 grams per km (228.53 g/mile) (performance and fuel consumption figures are provisional).
