Audi is launching the series production of the Audi A8 hybrid in 2012. The gasoline-engine-a 2.0 TFSI-and an electric motor developed up to 180 kW (245 HP) and 480 nm (345,03 lb-ft) output torque. Average consumption is under 6.4 litres / 100 km (36.75 U.S. MPEG). The sedan can speeds of up to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in electric power trips and only about three kilometers (1.86 miles) with local zero emissions at a constant speed of 60 km/h (37.28 mph).
The Audi flagship model serves as an efficient parallel hybrid. The 2.0 TFSI, that has changed in some areas, a force of 155 kW (211 HP) and 350 nm (258.15 lb-ft) produces of torque, between 1500 and 4200 RPM available. The internal-combustion engine works in conjunction with an electric motor with a hard drive, which is 40 kW (54 HP) and 210 nm (154.89 lb-ft).
Permanent magnet synchronous motor is mounted in the space, edited by the torque of the Tiptronic speed eight. Link that operates in an oil bath is wet clutches, the electric motor and the TFSI engine connected or separated. The link works smoothly and ultra- self-defence defence in all situations. The transfer of a very comfortable hybrid and rapid change leader’s flock to the front wheels; its wide use acceleration makes it for the efficiency of the Audi A8 hybrid.
Short-term from 180 kW (245 HP) system and the torque of 480 nm (354.03 lb-ft) make for a very agile performance. Audi A8 hybrid reaches 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 4.8 seconds since the beginning of a permanent and a maximum speed of 235 km/h (146.02 mph). Consumption of fuel in the U.S. cycle is less than 6.4 litres / 100 km (36.75 U.S. MPEG) and CO2 emissions among the 148 grams per kilometre (g/km 238.18). Please note that all preliminary figures.
Audi A8 hybrid can up to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) only in the electricity and has arange of up to three kilometers (1.86 miles) a steady 60 km/h (37.28 mph). The driver provides the choice of three modes: EV-characteristic fields are on the electrical unit, while the efficient d mode the engine and electric motor. Mode s and Tiptronic gate to for an exhilarating performance. The hybrid sedan has five operating conditions: only TFSI engine, with electric drive, the alone or in a hybrid mode; Recovery and support also available. The driver for all operating modes shows two screens in detail.
Battery lithium ion, heavy 36.7 kg (80.91 lb) is located in a test of a shock in the area of the fuselage. It provides 1.3 kWh nominal performance and up to 40 kW. Two methods are used to cool the air battery, according to your needs: with air injected passenger compartment separated by a fan and a cooling circuit of automatic system air conditioning. The battery is kept fully in the window of the required temperature range through a variety. The electricmotor and power electronics compact serve as drivers between electricmotor and battery water cooled.
Visual expressed that characterized Audi A8 hybrid by the subtle details. Ten rays your tires, cm and 19 cm have as have a diameter of 18 standard option are a reminder of the turbine blades. The insignia of the hybrid characteristics of the body and silver ice is available as an exclusive paint job. Automatic processing of metallic paint, three areas of the air- conditioning, LED headlights and BOSE sound system come standard.
Experience the ultra-lightweight design of the brand Audi A8 hybrid is one of the lightest in its class Limousines. His body of ASF (Audi space frame) steel is made of aluminum, while the B Pilares in the form of heat, extremely high strength. It weighs only about 40 percent has 231 kgs (509.27 pounds) lighter than a comparable steel design.
