The new Audi A7 Sportback 55 TFSI e quattro shown recently at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show belongs to a new wave of plug-in hybrids, which bring more all-electric range - compared to what usually was offered by German manufacturers.

Audi describes its new large four-door coupe PHEV as the Gran Turismo among the plug-in hybrids.

With a 14.1 kWh battery, the A7 Sportback PHEV can go up to over 40 km (24.9 mi) under the WLTP test procedure, which seems a reasonable minimum for commuting, taking into consideration the sporty character of the car (0-100 km/h or 62 mph in 5.7 seconds), its 270 kW powertrain and all-wheel-drive capability.
