Audi Plug-In Hybrids Available With Sweet Performance Upgrade

The new package caters to the 50 and 55 TFSI e engines. For individuals not familiar with the new naming conventions, this badge refers to its turbocharged gasoline 2.-liter four-cylinder engine supported by a plug-in hybrid electric motor. In its normal state, the 50 provides a blended power output of 295 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. This is bested by the 55, sending 362 hp and 369 lb-ft to the Quattro all-wheel-drive method. In the US, the Q5 Hybrid and A7 Hybrid only have the 55 TFSI e powertrains – there is no 50 TFSI e variant for these models.

Many thanks to the simple technological know-how of its in-residence produced motor manage device, ABT was in a position to boost outputs to 419 hp and 406 lb-ft for the 55 TFSI e and 352 hp and 369 lb-ft for the 50 TFSI e. These motor enhancements, for which no up to date efficiency figures are provided, are new from the tuning agency but aerodynamic, suspension and inside revisions currently exist for these three versions.
