Audi, the German automobile powerhouse has revealed that they will launch seven vehicles at the ongoing Geneva Motorshow.

On the exterior front, the SUV will come with a redesigned front fascia that has a revised grille and new air intakes.  On the rear, there is a new rear diffuser and aerodynamic 19-inch alloy. On the inside too, the changes are subtle yet efficient. The standard MMI system comes with a hybrid management system now.  It uses the navigation data and real-time traffic updates to assess the type of fuel required to run the SUV.

The biggest change comes in the form of a new plug-in hybrid powertrain that integrates a 3.0 litre TDI six-cylinder diesel engine and an electric motor that is powered by a lithium-ion battery.  The setup produces a combined power of 373ps and 700Nm of torque. That's enough to drive the SUV from 0 to 100 kmph in 6.0 seconds and reach a top speed of 225 kmph.

But where the hybrid powertrain excels, is the mileage figures it delivers. It returns a mileage of 1.7 L/100km and travels up to 56 km on electricity before running out of battery. A tank full of fuel and full battery will run the SUV for 1,410km overall. Charging of the battery is also not much of a fuss as it can be recharged in two-and-a-half hours with a rapid charger.

While the Europe sale will begin by next year, India could have to wait a little longer. Pricing is not announced for now.
