Default 2013 Audi A8 Hybrid unveiled, gets 2.0 liter TFSI 4-cylinder



Quote:
In Frankfurt next month, Audi will show up to the show with the new Audi A8 Hybrid, which will enter series production in 2012.
The 2013 Audi A8 Hybrid will be powered by a pretty efficient parallel hybrid system, which includes a 2.0 liter TFSI 4-cylinder turbo engine making 211-hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and an electric-motor making 54-hp and 155 lb-ft of torque. Together, the system outputs 245-hp with a maximum torque of 345.03 lb-ft. Mated to an 8-speed tiptronic transmission, the A8 Hybrid goes from 0 to 62 mph in 7.7 seconds with a top speed of 146 mph.
What about the fuel-efficiency? Audi says that the A8 Hybrid can travel at speeds of up to 62 mph on electric power alone, and cover around 1.86 miles with zero local emissions at a constant speed of 37. Fuel-consumption comes in under 6.4 liters per 100 km or 36.7 mpg in U.S. terms.
The 2013 Audi A8 Hybrid will make its public debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show next month. Prices and dealership availability will be announced closer to launch.

If it were a diesel instead, it would be perfect.

An urban town car.

Four cylinder plus batteries and electric motor, it is going to be heavier than normal, and not an autobahn burner. electric motors get less efficient, and batteries run dry at high-C-rate discharge at high speeds.

We'll never find out. Not bound for the US, and no reason for it with our comparatively cheap gas and lack of both CO2 based registration fees and congestion charges.

something like this would work beautifully in the cities in Europe. Some places you have to pay fees for driving in there for producing CO2 and whatnot but hybrids get to go on those roads for free, so it's a plus in that regard.

Fixed that.
No one try to show me those numbers they give either. We all know those aren't real world.

This is quite interesting. A hybrid setup on something besides the Prius that can actually produce better fuel numbers than buying a similarly equipped smaller car for the commute. How fast do you need to go on your daily grind? You need to be able to keep up with traffic and not accelerate so slow you will be dangerous. You really do not need Lambo acceleration numbers for the daily grind. It's like launch control, are you really going to use that to pull away from a Stop sign?

Don't just blindly go by the Euro (gallon and -testing spec) numbers provided. I'll be damned if that A8 hybrid was rated at more than 30 miles per US gallon combined by the EPA, not that the EPA will ever have a chance to test it for the reasons explained above.

I would be surprised if it were anywhere close to 37mpg combined in normal every day driving, not road trips or esoteric European test cycles
