Audi has officially revealed the 2011 Q5 Hybrid Quattro at the 2010 LA Auto Show, which is its first model fitted with two drive systems. Specs of this car include a 2.0 TFSI gasoline engine and can deliver 155 kW (211 hp) and a maximum torque of 350 Nm (258.15 lb-ft) permanently available at 1500 to 4200 rpm. This engine can also be found on the Golf GTI.

This engine is helped by a permanently energized synchronous machine, which acts as an electric motor, resulting to 33 kW (45 hp) of power and 211 Nm (155.63 lb-ft). The synchronous machines also act as a starter and, while decelerating, a generator.

The Q5 Hybrid Quattro’s total output is 180 kW (245 hp) with a system torque of 480 Nm (354.03 lb-ft). This enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h 962.14 miles) in 7.1 seconds.

Top speed is electronically limited to 222 km/h (137.94 mph). Moreover, this car is capable of accelerating from 80 to 120 km/h (49.71 to 74.56 mph) in fifth gear in about 5.9 seconds. One should expect this car to have a lithium-ion battery system, which weighs 38 kg (83.78 lb) and stores energy from the electric motor. With an output of 39 kW, the battery has 72 cells and 266 volts plus a nominal energy of 1.3 kWh.

The Q5 Hybrid Quattro covers about 3 kilometers (1.86 miles) locally emission-free with a speed of 60 km/h (37.28 mph). The SUV can drive up to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) alone under electric power. The Q5 Hybrid Quattro, on fuel consumption, boasts of an extraordinary 7.0 liters per 100 km (33.60 US mpg) and less than 160 g/km (257.50 g/mile) of CO2 emissions.

Its 75-liter (19.81 US gallon) tank produces a range comparable to that of a TDI. Moreover, the Q5 Hybrid Quattro offers five various operating modes: with the electric drive alone, with the combustion engine alone or in hybrid mode is possible, as are boosting and recuperation.
