Audi A6 Avant 55 TFSI e Quattro: Audi Launches Hybrid Version of Its Station Wagon

Posted on

Audi announces the arrival of the A6 Avant 55 TFSI Rechargeable Hybrid, an electric version of its station wagon. Cumulative power reaches 367 horsepower for a 0 to 100 km/h in less than 6 seconds.

After the Plug-in Hybrid version of its A6 Sedan, Audi is now offering the electric motor on its A6 wagon. Called the A6 Avant TFSI e Quattro, it features a 2.0 TFSI engine with 252 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque. The electric powertrain is based on a 142-horsepower engine.

The combined power thus reaches 367 horsepower and increases to 500 Nm of torque from 1,250 rpm. 0 to 100 km/h is reached in 5.7 seconds and CO2 emissions will be less than 50 grams per kilometre (between 44 and 48 g/km exactly).


Audi announces that this new engine promises a fuel consumption of 2.1 L / 100 km maximum. With all-electric power, the range reaches 51 kilometres and top speed 135 km/h.

Recharging (which can be managed from the myAudi application) is only compatible with terminals delivering a maximum of 7.4 kW. Count 2h30 for a full charge, announces the manufacturer.

Audi is particularly generous on the standard equipment. The S line bodystyling package, Matrix LED headlights and 19-inch aluminium wheels with sports suspension are standard. Inside, the Virtual Cockpit promises an excellent driving experience and comfort.

The Audi A6 Avant 55 TFSI e Quattro is priced at 71,940 euros in Germany. In France, the price should be slightly higher.

A substantial sum that positions it ahead of the Tesla models. While the Model S and Model X cost much more (over 100,000 euros), the price of an over-equipped Model 3 is close to that of the Audi A6 Avant TFSI.

However, the target is not necessarily the same, since the Model 3 is not a station wagon but a sedan.

In any case, Audi confirms its willingness to invest in more eco-friendly projects. Among other things, the German manufacturer plans to launch five 100% electric models in 2020 (e-Tron range) in addition to its hybrid models.

A new 100% electric small city car, a competitor to the Tesla Model Y, is undoubtedly among its most eagerly awaited models.
