The electric motor adds a further 124 PS and 220 Nm of torque from the get go. The combined result is a hybrid luxury sedan that sends out 245 PS and 500 Nm A lithium-ion battery pack with a capacity of 14.1 kWh sits in the bowels of the car and can power it for up to 50 km in pure electric mode.

The hybrid setup proves to be highly economical as fuel consumption is reduced to just 45 km/l and 52 g/km of CO2 emissions. All of this however, increases the weight of the car to over 2,000 kg. Hence, the sprint from 0-100 km/h is completed in 8.4 seconds and the A6 L e-tron has a top speed of 210 km/h.
