Article by Christian A., on November 9, 2010

It’s not a secret anymore that Audi is working on a hybrid version of the popular Q5 crossover, but until now there were no details regarding the technology which will be used on this new model from the German manufacturer.

Still, according to some unnamed Russian sources, AutoWeek was able to find out the first details and specs of the new Q5 Hybrid.

So, it appears that the 2011 Audi Q5 Hybrid will be powered, as expected, by a 2.0-liter TFSI engine delivering 2011, but also by a 45 hp electric motor. The total output of the car will be 240 hp and a whooping 480 Nm of torque.

With these numbers, the car will be able to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 7.1 seconds, while providing a top speed of 222 km/h or 138 mph.

According to the same sources, the car will be able to hit a top speed of 100 km/h or 62 mph, powered only by the lithium batteries, and using no fuel, but the range will be limited to just 3 kilometers or 1.8 miles.

The car features a set of lithium-ion batteries in the trunk, and as expected, the space offered by the car was reduced from 540 to 480 liters.

Not much, but now you have a hybrid car. Regarding the official debut of the car, this will take place next week, at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show.
