The Q5 TFSI e combines the turbocharged gas engine from the Q5 TFSI with an underfloor-mounted battery pack to create a plug-in hybrid (PHEV). When combined, the power output from both motors exceeds 350 HP and allows the car to do 0–100 KPH in just 5.3 seconds.
If efficiency is your top priority, keeping the gearbox in "D" allows for the optimal blend of electric and combustion power. When the mood strikes for performance, putting the gearbox in "S" allows both engines to work together, delivering instant response and outstanding acceleration.
Living up to our quattro legacy, the Q5 TFSI e is ready for anything Canada has to offer. The electric motor has been seamlessly integrated into the S Tronic gearbox. The quattro system, unique to the Q5 TFSI e, can predict traction requirements before needed and distribute power accordingly.
With 3 modes to help manage the battery, the choice is yours. EV hold uses the gas engine and saves the electric range for city driving, while hybrid mixes both gas and electric engines for optimal efficiency. EV mode allows the Q5 TFSI e to run using solely electric power.
