2017 Audi Q7 e-tron TDI Plug-in Hybrid First Drive – Review – Car and Driver

View 48 Photos

As a diesel-powered plug-in-hybrid SUV, the Audi Q7 e-tron occupies a niche within a niche within a niche. It could be seen as evidence that Audi’s product planners are determined to find the least-populated space in the great automotive Venn diagram. There have been diesel hybrids before in Europe (notably Volvo’s V60 PHEV) but never one this large offering quite this much all-electric range.

Which, on the basis of our first drive, would be a shame. The e-tron TDI can’t match the dynamic excitement or Bentley-baiting torque output of the SQ7, but it’s fast, well-mannered, and—so long as it’s plugged in often enough—capable of turning in exceptional fuel-economy numbers. Then there’s the prospect of being able to go more than 800 miles between fuel stops to replenish its 19.8-gallon tank, provided you drive gently enough.

34 Electric Miles—But No On-the-Go Charging

Electrification has brought a 17.3-kWh battery pack, installed under the cargo bay. This precludes a third row of seats but yields sufficient charge capacity for up to 34 miles of electric-only range. As with Audi’s other larger hybrids, the e-tron sandwiches an electric motor between the internal-combustion side of the powertrain—the company’s familiar turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel—and its eight-speed automatic gearbox. An electronically controlled clutch can disconnect this V-6 engine from the rest of the powertrain, but the electric motor always supplies drive via the transmission.

What the e-tron can’t do is recharge its battery pack on the move with its engine. Once the cells are discharged, the e-tron becomes nothing more than a hybrid with an enormous battery pack—including the associated hardware, Audi tells us the pack weighs 445 pounds—with only regenerative braking to trickle some charge back into the cells. The battery-charge level can be maintained by switching the car to a “hold” mode, saving the juice to run in EV mode in emissions-restricted city centers.

Driving in this latter setting delivers the full scorecard of EV clichés: a hint of the familiar subway-car soundtrack, strong initial performance that quickly tails off, and a readout that loses more than a mile of stated range for each mile traveled at anything quicker than a cautious pace. If you accelerate too rapidly, go beyond 84 mph, or reach the pressure point at the bottom of the go pedal’s travel, the V-6 fires to life regardless of which mode is selected.

The engine has been modified from the standard Euro-spec Q7 TDI with new cylinder liners and piston rings designed to better protect the engine when it’s ignited while the vehicle is already traveling at highway speed. There are also dynamic engine mounts to help minimize vibrations and unwanted harmonics; Audi claims the V-6 can operate happily at just 850 rpm. Under gentle use, the engine cuts in and out almost imperceptibly, with only vigorous accelerator applications producing some correspondingly gruff noises. Fully extended, the e-tron feels respectably rapid, although nothing like the monstrous SQ7.

Dynamically, the mass of the electric powertrain and battery pack diminishes both lateral and longitudinal acceleration. The e-tron feels less fleet of foot than the SQ7 and less keen to turn in, and it reaches its modest cornering limits far sooner. (Lacking a 48-volt electrical architecture, it does without the SQ7’s active anti-roll bar functions, too.) Being fatter actually seems to help it ride better over certain rough surfaces—the example we drove had the optional air suspension—but it loses its composure when asked to deal with bigger bumps. It feels big and heavy because it is big and heavy.

As with every plug-in hybrid, the Q7 e-tron will make mileage sense only to those possessing both the wherewithal and inclination to plug it in. Drive it between plug-equipped destinations that are close enough together and a tank of diesel may well last for the entire life of the car—or until it turns gelatinous—but the claimed 156.9 MPGe that the car scores on the official European mileage test (which is highly biased in favor of plug-in vehicles) will be a cruel fiction for most.

Like most of its plug-in ilk, the Q7 e-tron seems like an expensively engineered solution to a problem that relatively few people have; it’s absolutely great at performing one specific task but compromised for all others. That said, we’d still prefer this edition of the Q7 e-tron over the four-cylinder gasoline version, initially intended primarily for the Chinese market.

Кроссовер Audi Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI quattro: 1410 км на одной заправке

Среди других гибридных и в целом экологичных новинок Женевского автошоу как-то особенно заметился новый гибрид Audi Q7 с приставкой e-tron. Если точнее, то полностью его название выглядит так: Audi Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI quattro и он достаточно интересно отделяется от обычного Q7: обновленный дизайн передка со свежей решеткой радиатора и модифицированными воздухозаборниками, новый задний диффузор и 19″ легкосплавные диски.

Внутри визуальных отличий не так много, разве что навигационная система MMI теперь тесно сотрудничает с гибридными механизмами для обеспечения оптимального режима движения в данный момент времени.

Из невидимых изменений электро-SUV также стоит отметить новый электромеханический усилитель руля и оригинальную систему вывода теплого воздуха от электроагрегатов в салон.

Впрочем, всё это меркнет по сравнению с динамическими показателями нового кроссовера Q7: под капотом спрятался 6-цилиндровый TDI (дизель) на 3 литра, 8-ст. автомат и электромотор с Li-ion батарейкой на 7,2 кВт*ч (впрочем, последняя устанавливается сзади). Суммарная мощность обоих агрегатов составляет 373 л.с. (258 + 127) при 700 Нм максимального крутящего момента, что позволяет развить первую сотню за 6 секунд. Заявленная максимальная скорость электрического кроссовера — 225 км/ч. Средний расход топлива в экономичном режиме — всего 1,7 литра на 100 км пробега.

Схемы кроссовера Audi Q7 e-tron, если кому-то интересно

Если есть желание крепко подружиться с розеткой, то запас хода составит всего 56 км (с другой стороны, это не мало для городских передвижений, ведь при использовании специальной зарядной станции время «заправки» составляет всего 2,5 часа), а в гибридном режиме на одном баке Вы проедете 1410 км без дозаправок.

В стандартном оснащении числятся:

  • система стабилизации с off-road режимом
  • 12,3″ дисплей (вместо спидиметров, тахометров, etc.)
  • климат-контроль
  • мультимедийная система с сенсорным дисплеем, навигатором и WiFi точкой доступа
  • аудиосистема Bose и Bang&Olufsen с объемным звучанием
  • опционально заявлена панорамная крыша, проекционный дисплей и сидения с массажем.

На рынке Германии новый кроссовер Audi Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI quattro появится уже в течении максимум пары месяцев. Ценник пока не объявлен.

Гибридный Audi Q7 e-tron начал европейские продажи

В марте текущего года стартует прием заказов на новый гибридный кроссовер Audi Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI quattro. Европейские покупатели смогут лично оценить все преимущества гибридного двигателя всего за 80,5 тыс. евро (цена для Германии), однако получить их смогут только летом.

Как понятно из наименования модели, кроссовер получит турбированный дизельный мотор на 3 литра, дополненный электромотором и в меру ёмким аккумулятором на 17,3 кВт*ч. Суммарная мощность дизельного и электрического моторов составляет 373 л.с., максимальный момент — 700 Нм. От указанной батареи в режиме электрохода кроссовер Audi Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI quattro способен проехать порядка 56 км. Подзарядить его можно и от обычной розетки (но долго), а от специализированной 7,2 кВт сети 100% заряда достигаются за 2.5 часа.

К прочим динамическим характеристикам как всегда относится разгон до сотни (6,2 секунды) и средний паспортный расход топлива (1,8 литра дизеля на 100 км пути).

В списке стандартного оснащение кроссовера числятся светодиодные фары, фирменная панель приборов Virtual Cockpi в исключительно цифровом виде, навигатор и дополнительный TFT экран с выводом индикаторов заряда батареи и энергии.e

Мультимедийная система немецкого гибридного кроссовера предлагает подключение к интернету через сети LTE, он-лайн сервисы Audi Connect e-tron, а также приложение Audi MMI Connect, в задачи которого входит дистанционное управление процессом зарядки, просмотр истории прошлых поездок, а также дистанционное управление климат-контролем.

2016 Audi Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI quattro Trusts Locomotives and Submarines for New Diesel-Electric SUV Powertrain

It accelerates from a standstill to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in six seconds, and yet consumes not even two liters of diesel per 100 kilometers (117.6 US mpg). The Audi Q7 e-tron quattro is sporty, comfortable and at the same time highly efficient. The world’s first TDI plug in hybrid with quattro drive, it is also the first plug-in hybrid with a diesel engine from Audi.

The Q7 e-tron quattro is Audi’s second model with a powerful plug-in hybrid drive system. The model combines the best of two worlds: Powered by the lithium-ion battery, the large SUV covers up to 56 kilometers (34.8 mi) on electric power alone – quietly, powerfully and with zero local emissions. Together with the diesel engine, the car can cover a total distance of 1,410 kilometers (876.1 mi).

Sporty power and minimum consumption The Audi Q7 e-tron quattro is the world’s first plug-in hybrid car with a six-cylinder diesel engine and permanent all-wheel drive. Its sporty power is impressive: The 3.0 TDI and electric motor deliver 275 kW (373 hp) and 700 Nm (516.3 lb-ft) of system torque – enough to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 6.0 seconds and for a top speed of 225 km/h (139.8 mph). The Q7 e-tron quattro travels up to 56 kilometers (34.8 mi) on electric power alone. According to the ECE standard for plug-in hybrid vehicles, the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro needs only 1.7 liters of diesel fuel per 100 kilometers (138.4 US mpg) – with a CO2 emission level of less than 50 grams per kilometer (80.5 g/mi) and a new best value in the segment. The standard thermal management system with integrated heat pump was specially developed for the Q7 e‑tron quattro. With this technology, Audi is the first manufacturer worldwide to set a new benchmark in the areas of interior comfort and climate control efficiency.

Space and comfort: the culture of travel The Audi Q7 e-tron quattro impresses with luxury-class comfort features and the largest interior in its field of competitors, besides other features. The balanced chassis, optionally available with adaptive air suspension, combines excellent ride comfort and distinctly sporty handling. The Audi Q7* sets standards with the display and operating concept of the standard Audi virtual cockpit and a newly developed MMI system.

The standard MMI navigation plus, with Audi connect internet module, is closely integrated into the hybrid management system on the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro. Using navigation data and real-time traffic information, the most fuel-efficient choice of four modes can be calculated along the route to the destination already when the car is started, even for long distances. The predictive efficiency assistant facilitates a forward-looking hybrid strategy, and is another new and breakthrough technology from Audi. Operation via the MMI touchpad or by means of naturally spoken commands provides the utmost convenience.

The new Audi Q7 e-tron quattro is a long-distance car with great sporting talent and yet suitable for everyday use. The new electromechanical power steering is highly efficient as well as sensitive. The five-link wheel suspension, also newly developed, on the front and rear axles is lighter by more than 60 kilograms (132.3 lb) compared with the axles on the predecessor model, and greatly contribute to the high driving dynamics. The lowered center of gravity also plays an essential role here.

The new Audi Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI quattro 275 kW (373 hp) system output and 700 Nm (516.3 lb-ft) system torque – the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro sets new standards with its plug-in hybrid technology and quattro drive. The large SUV accelerates like a sports car from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 6.0 seconds, but consumes no more than 1.7 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (138.4 US mpg) in the NEDC cycle – a best value in its class.

The Audi Q7 e-tron quattro is the first plug-in hybrid car in the world to combine a six‑cylinder diesel engine with quattro drive. With a system output of 275 kW (373 hp) and 700 Nm (516.3 lb-ft) system torque, it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in just 6.0 seconds, and continues up to a top speed of 225 km/h (139.8 mph). According to the relevant standard for plug-in hybrid vehicles, however, the large SUV needs no more than 1.7 liters (138.4 US mpg) of fuel in the NEDC cycle (with less than 50 g CO2  per km (80.5 g/mi)). This value too sets new standards.

Like all Audi hybrid models, the Q7 e-tron quattro has also been designed as a parallel hybrid. The 3.0 TDI, a highly efficient latest-generation V6 diesel engine, delivers 190 kW (258 hp) of power and 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft) of torque. Active engine mounts – a world first for a diesel engine – eliminate unwanted vibrations through selective counter pulses.

The disk-shaped electric motor provides 94 kW and 350 Nm (258.1 lb-ft) of torque. Together with a decoupler, it is integrated into the eight-speed tiptronic. The automatic transmission is outstanding for its high efficiency and low weight. The quattro permanent all-wheel drive, also compact and lightweight, transmits power to all four wheels. During fast cornering, its center differential works closely with the wheel-selective torque control system, an intelligent software feature.

56 kilometer (34.8 mi) electric range: best value in the segment The lithium-ion battery consists of 168 high-quality battery cells and is fluid-cooled. With a capacity of 17.3 kWh, it allows a 56 kilometer (34.8 mi) range in electric mode – another record in the segment. The total range with the TDI engine is 1,410 kilometers (876.1 mi).

Another efficiency component is the standard thermal management system with integrated heat pump, specially developed for the Q7 e-tron quattro. This makes it possible for the waste heat from the electrical drive components to be made available to the interior of the Q7 e-tron quattro. Audi is the first manufacturer worldwide to introduce this technology in series production in a plug-in hybrid and is thus setting new standards in the areas of interior comfort, climate control efficiency and range in EV mode. As well as heating up the interior more quickly, the customer also benefits from a far-reaching electric driving experience.

The new two-phase charging technology installed in the new Q7 e-tron quattro allows charging with up to 7.2 kW of power. Depending on the infrastructure (appropriate high-performance industrial socket) and the charging cable, full charging of the battery takes about two-and-a-half hours. A power charging cable is standard equipment. Audi offers its customers an optional package of e-tron services. They range from changeover to renewably generated electricity (Audi Energy) to installation and customer service. A convenient solution is also provided by the standard e-tron services in the Audi connect portfolio, for controlling functions like charging and air conditioning via smartphone.

Maximum efficiency: hybrid management The hybrid management system controls the operating states of the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro intelligently, flexibly and with high efficiency. The driver can choose between four modes. The EV mode prioritizes electric driving, while in hybrid mode hybrid management decides on the type of drive for the most part freely. In battery hold mode, the system stores the available electrical energy, and charges the battery in battery charge mode.

The large SUV generally starts in electric mode. To activate the TDI, the driver has to press down on the active accelerator pedal (another innovation from Audi) beyond a certain point of resistance, which depends on the requirements of the hybrid management system. A pressure point must also be overcome for boosting, in which case both the engine and motor work together.

When the hybrid mode is active and the eight-speed tiptronic with integrated electric motor is in shift position D, the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro changes to coasting mode once the driver takes his foot off the accelerator. The TDI and electric motor are then deactivated. Should the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro approach a slower vehicle ahead or a traffic circle or the city limit, the coasting mode ends in favor of controlled regenerative deceleration. To detect the traffic situation ahead, the data from MMI navigation plus, the front camera and (if adaptive cruise control is on board) the radar sensors are used.

When driving in shift position S and in the battery charge mode, energy recovery begins as soon as the driver releases the accelerator. The driver can progressively influence the degree of recuperation by operating the shift paddles on the steering wheel. The majority of all brake applications in everyday use also occur via the electric motor. In the event of moderate or sharper deceleration, the hydraulic brakes come into play.

The standard MMI navigation plus is closely integrated in the hybrid management system in the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro. Based on the navigation data and real-time traffic information, the most fuel-efficient choice of four modes can be calculated along the route to the destination as soon as the car is started, even for long distances. The predictive efficiency assistant facilitates a forward-looking hybrid strategy, and is another new and breakthrough technology from Audi.

During driving, the predictive efficiency assistant supplies highly precise information on the near surroundings – creating a detailed picture of up to three kilometers (1.9 mi) ahead along the route from the navigation and camera data as well as from the radar information. On approaching traffic signs with speed limits, town signs, bends, traffic circles and intersections, the system visually signals to the driver to release the accelerator pedal. At the same time, the active accelerator pulses once against the sole of his or her foot.

New technologies: top comfort and sporty handling The new Audi Q7 e-tron quattro is a long-distance car with great sporting talent and yet suitable for everyday use. The new electromechanical power steering is highly efficient as well as sensitive. The five-link wheel suspensions, also newly developed, on the front and rear axles are lighter by 60 kilograms (132.3 lb) compared with the predecessor model, and greatly contributes to the high driving dynamics. The lowered center of gravity also plays an essential role here.

Even the basic version of the large SUV rolls along gently and smoothly, while comfort is further enhanced by the optional adaptive air suspension with controlled damping. The driver can regulate the mode of operation via the standard Audi drive select dynamic handling system. It offers up to seven modes and integrates further technical components such as the steering, accelerator and automatic transmission.

As an all-rounder for leisure, family, sports and business, the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro also effortlessly masters easy terrain. A tilt angle display, hill descent control, an off-road mode for the Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC) and off-road navigation are standard.

Power and understatement: the design The design of the new 5.05 meter-long (16.6 ft) Audi Q7* strikes a balance between powerful, intensified stylistic elements and elegant understatement. Details such as the deeply sculpted Singleframe grille, the striking emphasis of the wheels and the flared edges over the wheels – the “quattro blisters” – embody the brand’s DNA. All lines and surfaces are designed precisely and incisively, and accentuate the width and solidity of the car. The tailgate wraps around the steeply angled D-pillars – typical of the Q models from Audi.

The Singleframe, the air intakes, the 19-inch wheels and the rear diffuser are specially designed on the Q7 e-tron quattro. The headlights are three-dimensional, with their light signature appearing as a double arrow.

The body plays a decisive role in the relatively low weight of the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro. With its many components made of hot-formed steel and aluminum, it utilizes the same lightweight construction potential as the conventional Q7. The drag coefficient is only 0.34.

Elegant design and top quality: the interior The Audi Q7 e-tron quattro has the most spacious interior in its segment. The three rear seats have adjustable backrests and can be moved fore/aft as desired. The lithium-ion battery is accommodated in a space-saving way: The luggage compartment has a capacity of 890 liters (31.4 cu ft) in its basic configuration, with a maximum of 2,075 liters (73.3 cu ft). An electrically operated tailgate is standard.

Design elements like the wrap-around – the long arc around the driver and front passenger – the trim strips and the panel of air vents emphasize the generosity of the interior. The two-part trim areas allow many individual combinations; the range of upholstery is of luxury-class standard. Numerous materials from the elegant Audi design selection are new to the Q family. The workmanship makes no compromises – typical Audi.

State of the art: operation and displays A highlight in the Q7 e-tron is the standard Audi virtual cockpit – the fully digital instrument cluster with its 12.3-inch diagonal presents all the important information in fascinating graphics of brilliant quality. The driver can retrieve different levels of information, including specific e-tron displays such as the power meter. The large display makes it possible to switch to a conventional tachometer or to display it simultaneously with the power meter. In addition, the instrument cluster depicts the displays for the energy flow, the range (with numbers and graphs) and the charge level of the battery.

Audi also uses the latest technology from consumer electronics in the area of infotainment. Its main element is the second-generation modular infotainment platform, which utilizes the enormous computing power of the Tegra 30 graphics chip from NVIDIA. Operation is by voice, with the multifunction steering wheel or with the completely newly developed MMI terminal, the MMI touchpad. On request, Audi will integrate the MMI all-in-touch, the touchpad with haptic feedback.

Audi has added specific items to infotainment for displays in electric mode. Consumption statistics are available, for example, along with a graphic display of the electric range in the navigation map. Charging as well as the preliminary air conditioning can also be time-controlled and adapted to the customer’s requirements, such as departure time, so as to save resources and costs.

The standard Audi connect component links the Q7 e-tron quattro to the internet using the fast LTE standard – another unique selling point of the large SUV. Passengers can surf and email with their mobile devices via the Wi-Fi hotspot, while the driver can make use of numerous new online services and apps in the car. The additional elements are also highly attractive – the Audi tablet, which serves as Rear Seat Entertainment, the 3D sound systems from Bose and Bang & Olufsen and the new Audi phone box that inductively charges cell phones.

The equipment: typically top of the line The Audi Q7 e-tron quattro comes with the standard equipment of a top model. Its special features include the Audi virtual cockpit, MMI navigation plus, predictive efficiency assistant and 19-inch wheels. The automatic air conditioning is also a tailored solution. It operates in unison with a heat pump that utilizes the waste heat of the electrical drive components for the thermal management. As an important efficiency element, it is another great innovation in the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro, heating up the interior faster at low temperatures, for example, to extend the electric range by up to 20 percent.

The options for the large SUV include a head-up display, tinted privacy glazing and a panoramic glass sunroof. If desired, the driver and front passenger can sit on climate-controlled customized contour seats with massage function.

The new Audi Q7 e-tron quattro also sets standards in assistance systems. New, for example, are collision avoidance assist, turn assist, cross-traffic assist and trailer assist. The adaptive cruise control including traffic jam assist takes over the steering from the driver on well-paved roads at speeds of up to 65 km/h (40.4 mph) if the traffic is slow-moving. In combination with the predictive efficiency assistant, speed is automatically adjusted when entering built-up areas and to observe speed limits as well as on bends and at intersections, once again using the coasting mode.

The Audi Q7 e-tron quattro will arrive at dealers in Germany in the spring of 2016.

Fuel consumption of the models named above:

Audi Q7: Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 8.3 – 5.7 (28.3 – 41.3 US mpg)**;

Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 193 – 149 (310.6 – 239.8 g/mi)**
