2012 Audi Q5 Hybrid

The Audi Q5 Hybrid quattro, scheduled to arrive at dealerships at the end of the year, is the first mass-produced hybrid model from Audi that makes use of two drive systems. Delivering 245 hp of system performance and 354 lb-ft (480 Nm) of torque, its 2.0 TFSI gasoline engine and electric motor ensure sporty dynamics while achieving an average fuel consumption in the normal cycle (NEDC) of under 6.9 liters per 100 km.

During the development process, Audi focused on a high share of electrically powered driving. The sportiest hybrid SUV on the market can drive up to 62 mph (100 km/h) under electric power alone and covers about two miles (three kilometers) locally emission-free at a speed of 40 mph (60 km/h). With the powerful, lightweight lithium-ion battery and many other solutions, the Audi Q5 Hybrid quattro features state of the art technology.

Subtle Changes on the Exterior

Subtle visual effects on the exterior are a signature feature of the Audi Q5 Hybrid quattro. The rear hatch, fenders and aluminum door sills bear hybrid badges. The radiator grill is painted a high-gloss black, and the tailpipes are trimmed in chrome. An exclusive paint finish in Arctic Silver metallic is available as an option.

The 19-inch cast aluminum wheels were specially designed for the hybrid - their ten spokes are reminiscent of turbine blades. The tires are size 235/55. Audi also offers customers 19- and 20-inch diagonal wheels, and an S line bumper is available from quattro GmbH.

The body is extraordinarily light, with the rear hatch and engine hood made of aluminum. The rigid body shell incorporates hot-shaped steel in numerous places, combining low weight with extremely high strength. Despite an extensive array of standard equipment, the Q5 Hybrid quattro with its curb weight of less than 4,409 lbs (2000 kg) is the lightest hybrid SUV on the world market. All of its hybrid components add less than 287 lbs (130 kg) of extra weight.


The Audi Q5 Hybrid features a novel display concept, in which each of the hybrid drive's driving modes can be experienced. The tachometer has been replaced on the instrument cluster by a "power meter," with a needle that indicates the total system output on a scale of 0 to 100. A second scale is divided into colored segments; its green and orange segments clearly show which drive system the Q5 Hybrid quattro is currently using. An additional instrument displays the charge level of the battery.

At the same time, the display of the driver information system and the large monitor of the MMI Navigation plus show the operating states and power flows in the hybrid system in elegant graphics with a three-dimensional effect. The MMI screen also displays differentiated consumption and recuperation statistics in easily understandable bar graphs.
