The Audi Q3 as a plug-in hybrid - the drive management

The drive management of the compact SUV models is designed for high efficiency. Starting is always electric except in extremely cold conditions. Both plug-in models can drive up to 61 kilometers locally emission-free according to NEDC (in WLTP it is 51 kilometers for the Q3 and 50 kilometers for the Q3 Sportback). They can reach a maximum speed of 140 km/h. At low speeds, the AVAS (Acoustic Vehicle Alert System) generates the legally required e-sound to warn other road users. In "auto hybrid" mode, the main operating mode, the drive management system intelligently and efficiently divides the tasks between the 1.4 TFSI and the e-machine. In many situations, such as overtaking, the e-machine supports the four-cylinder. When accelerating from low engine speeds, for example, its principle-based high torque bridges the few tenths of a second that the turbocharger needs to build up pressure - its use is imperceptible but efficient. The driver can prioritize the electric drive with the EV button. The drive management system constantly evaluates numerous data, including route information from the navigation system and close-range data from the vehicle sensors. As a result, it recognizes when the car is approaching a place name sign, a speed limit or a traffic circle, or when it runs into someone in front. When the throttle is released, the Audi Q3 45 TFSI e and Q3 Sportback 45 TFSI e begin to sail in most situations with the TFSI off.
