2011 Audi Q5 Hybrid coming to the 2010 LA Auto Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 12, 2010

According to the latest reports, it appears that the 2011 Audi Q5 Hybrid will finally make its debut in November, at the 2010 LA Auto Show. Still, there are no details regarding the technical part of this car, but some sources say that the Q5 Hybrid will receive a 2.0-liter TFSI petrol engine delivering 2011 hp but also an electric motor delivering 45 hp, which means that the Q5 Hybrid will deliver a total output of 256 hp.

This means that the car will use the same technology found on the Audi A8 Hybrid Concept, unveiled back in March at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. According to Audi, the A8 Hybrid delivers the same power as a V6 engine, but with a fuel economy like a modest four-cylinder unit.

The A8 Hybrid Concept can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 7.6 seconds and has a top speed electronically limited at 235 km/h (146.02 mph).

The A8 Hybrid cat be driven as a full electric car at speeds of up to 65 km/h (40.39 mph) and for a distance exceeding two kilometers. After the car has a speed above 65 km/h (40.39 mph) the combustion engine alone does all the propulsive work, while the electric motor supplies onboard users and recharges the battery.

Still, few sources say that the car could be powered by the same system found on the Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid, which means a 3.0-liter V6 engine delivering 333 hp and a 45 hp electric engine.

This means that the car could deliver an impressive 378 hp, but honestly to tell you we don’t think that Audi will mount this system on the Q5 Hybrid, as it is way too powerful. We do expect the same tech found on the A8 Hybrid Concept.
