Offering the same sleek, rugged looks and interior comfort of the traditionally fuelled Q7, the new Audi Q7 e-tron adds plug-in hybrid technology to the mix, making for a more responsible drive and lower running costs.
The Q7 e-tron’s styling features the same clean lines, geometric shapes and flowing roofline of its sibling, retaining a modern, muscular appearance that turns heads on city streets and beyond. A high ground clearance gives the SUV undeniable presence, while silver roof bars lend practicality to the design. With a bold lighting signature and prominent air intakes at the front too, it’s a model that really means business.
At first glance, the Audi Q7 e-tron’s interior seems no different from its sibling’s. Indeed, the same high-quality materials and luxurious finishes adorn the cabin, alongside the marque’s innovative Virtual Cockpit, which incorporates a 12.3-inch TFT screen to display key information. Take a closer look, however, and there are extras you won’t find on the conventional Q7, such as a secondary fuel gauge for electricity and hybrid-specific information.
The hybrid model also features a higher boot floor to accommodate the battery, and seats five as opposed to the regular version’s seven. That said, there’s more than enough room for passengers and luggage on every occasion.
The Audi Q7 e-tron pairs a 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine with a 94kW electric motor and eight-speed automatic gearbox. This means performance is uncompromised, with the model achieving 0-62mph in only 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 143mph. You’ll experience a smooth, comfortable drive while cruising and surprising agility around town thanks to precise, well-weighted steering.
Economy is, of course, where the Q7 e-tron really excels. Capable of travelling 34 miles on battery power alone, it provides a totally clean drive on shorter journeys, while overall CO2 emissions are just 48g/km and combined fuel consumption reaches up to 156.9mpg.
Like the regular Q7, the e-tron version doesn’t shy away from the latest innovations. The MMI infotainment system delivers crisp audio, Bluetooth functionality and intuitive navigation to the cabin, while climate control ensures you remain cool on the hottest of days. Keyless entry also comes as standard for your convenience.
A five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP confirms the Audi Q7 e-tron’s ability to protect you and your passengers. Complete with stability control, Automatic Emergency Braking and airbags, it ensures maximum safety wherever you go.
