With trendsetting full-hybrid technology, diversified innovative technologies and luxurious features, Audi A8L hybrid once again creates a brand-new standard for the same class of luxury. As an all new trendsetting, smart high-tech car, it will bring you an unparalleled enjoyment of sporty driving.
Audi A8L hybrid
Trendsetting full-hybrid technology
As a full-hybrid vehicle, Audi A6 hybrid is equipped with a 2.0 TFSI® engine which has won multiple awards. This 4-cylinder engine performs as well as the six-cylinder engine. Its flexible and intelligent cooperation with the motor achieves higher efficiency but lower fuel consumption. The use of the latest electronic technology makes the car body lighter, so as to achieve low emissions, low fuel consumption and excellent performance, making the combined consumption of the car to be as low as only 6.3 liters per 100 km. Pure electric driving, energy recovery, full acceleration and coasting as well as other innovative technologies and concepts are all applied into Audi A6 hybrid, making the hybrid driving of the car become a perfect experience.
8-speed tiptronic hybrid transmission
Audi A8L hybrid is equipped with an 8-speed tiptronic hybrid transmission, which can automatically determine the optimal timing of switching gears, making the shifting process done more quickly and smoothly. Compared with the traditional gearbox, the 8-speed tiptronic hybrid transmission has unparalleled high efficiency, energy saving capacity and environmentally friendly features. Meanwhile, it can significantly reduce the commonly-seen impact of shifting gears existing in common automatic transmissions, perfectly integrating the efficient power transfer and the comfortable driving experience, and making everything done easily and smoothly.
Full hybrid battery system
Audi A8L hybrid is the first hybrid model among the same class of sedans to use lithium-ion batteries and can rely on the pure electric power to drive at a speed up to 100 km/h. Equipped with lithium-ion batteries, the car has a higher energy capacity, higher output but lower requirements for weight and space. Li-ion batteries have a long life span. When the vehicle is stationary for a long time, the Li-ion batteries have a very slow self-discharge level to maintain the required power.
ASF® Audi Space Frame
Thanks to the revolutionary new manufacturing process, ASF® (Audi Space Frame) further develops. The use of a high-strength aluminum alloy frame increases the overall stiffness and the local rigidity of the car body, greatly reducing the body’s weight. The improvement of the body rigidity makes the Audi A8L hybrid not only have excellent dynamic handling performance, quietness and ultimate comfort but also have the best safety performance among the same class of cars. ASF® enables the body to be lightweight, perfectly ensuring the vehicle's dynamic performance and lower fuel consumption.
Energy recovery system
Compared with the traditional drive system, the energy recovery system with which Audi A8L hybrid is equipped can greatly reduce fuel consumption. When the vehicle is in the brake, the motor works as a generator and the generated energy is stored in high-voltage batteries to be used efficiently in the next cycle of acceleration. In the pure electric driving mode, the maximal speed of the car can reach 100 km/h.
Innovative energy flow
The hybrid energy flow of Audi A8L hybrid can be displayed in the driver information system (DIS) and MMI® multimedia interactive system. The energy flow display uses simple, intuitive and high-quality graphics to explain the function of hybrid drive, and the driver can accurately know the function and status of hybrid components through the change of the graphics and color. Innovative technology enables you to know very well about your car and enjoy the fun of driving.
