“The power of a six-cylinder model, the fuel consumption of a four-cylinder version.” Not really something that we haven’t heard before, but that is how Audi is describing the upcoming Audi A8 Hybrid. Audi has released the official specs and photos of the 2013 Audi A8 Hybrid before its world debut in Frankfurt next month.
The Audi A8 Hybrid is powered by a 2.0L TFSI four-cylinder and an electric motor that together puts out 245 horsepower and 345 lb-ft. of torque. The power is transmitted to the ground via an eight-speed tiptronic transmission. The A8 Hybrid gets 37 mpg U.S. and can travel up to 62 mph on electricity alone. It can also travel up to 1.86 miles using the power supplied by the lithium-ion battery pack.
The 2013 Audi A8 Hybrid is scheduled to arrive sometime in 2012.
