As part of its long range goal of electrification, Audi is debuting 5 plug-in hybrid models during the second half of 2019. The latest model to join the electric portfolio is the midsize 2020 Audi A6 55 TFSI e quattro sedan. Like all Audi plug-in hybrid models, it also combines two highly efficient drives to achieve a system output of 270 kW (367 PS). Its four-cylinder gasoline engine, a 2.0 TFSI, delivers 185 kW (252 PS). The electric motor, which is integrated into the seven-speed S tronic, has a peak output of 105 kW. The system torque already reaches its maximum of 500 Nm (368.8 lb-ft) at a speed of 1,250 rpm. The lithium-ion battery, which is positioned in the vehicle rear, stores 14.1 kWh of energy. It is integrated such that the luggage compartment offers level and convenient luggage space. The A6 TFSI e 55 quattro is a sporty car that is highly efficient at the same time. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 5.6 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph). On purely electric power, it reaches a top speed of 135 km/h (83.9 mph). Its electric range, measured according to the WLTP procedure, is up to 53 kilometers (32.9 mi). The powerful plug-in hybrid model is the only premium sedan in the direct competitive environment that has quattro allwheel drive on board. Designed expressly for European and Asian markets, there is no word on when or if the A6 55 TFSI e quattro will arrive in America.
