The 2021 Audi A7 55 TFSI e plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) captivates with a broad stance and sleek, sportback design, confident driving dynamics and a suite of standard and available technologies. But, what sets the PHEV model apart is the strength of powertrain, routing a net 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of nearly instantaneous torque to the ground with quattro all-wheel drive with ultra technology.
Its ability to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds places the A7 55 TFSI e close to that of its A7 V6 TFSI sibling, with added benefits such as a nearly silent all-electric driving mode as well as potential customer eligibility for a federal tax credit anticipated up to $6,712 and access to HOV lane driving in some states.
Expected to go on sale in the U.S. this fall, the A7 55 TFSI e is the third plug-in hybrid in Audi’s U.S. lineup, joining the Audi Q5 55 TFSI e SUV and A8 60 TFSI e flagship sedan. The addition of this latest model brings the Audi brand ever closer to its U.S. goal of electrifying one-third of its portfolio by 2025.
