Audi has officially unveiled the Q5 Hybrid at the Geneva Motor Show. It features a 155 kW (211 PS / 208 hp) 2.0-liter TFSI petrol engine and a 33 kW (45 PS / 44 hp) electric motor.

Following its announcement late last year, Audi has officially unveiled the Q5 Hybrid in Geneva.

Designed to be one of the most fuel-efficient crossovers on the market, the Hybrid features a distinctive appearance with exclusive 19-inch alloy wheels, chrome exhaust pipes, and plenty of hybrid badging.

Under the hood, power is provided by a 155 kW (211 PS / 208 hp) 2.0-liter TFSI petrol engine and a 33 kW (45 PS / 44 hp) electric motor. Boasting a combined output of 180 kW (245 PS / 241 hp) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque, the Q5 Hybrid accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 7.1 seconds and has a top speed of 222 km/h (138 mph). More importantly, the crossover has an average fuel consumption of less than 6.9 L/100km (33.60 US mpg) and CO2 emissions of 159 g/km.

To get these impressive figures, engineers put the Q5 on a strict diet. Notable changes include an aluminum hood and tailgate as well as a lightened quattro all-wheel drive system. Thanks to these tweaks, the model tips the scales at less than 2000 kg (4409 lbs) which makes it the lightest hybrid SUV in the world.
