The Audi Q7 hybrid is a supremely efficient electric vehicle being targeted towards the Chinese market. This vehicle offers an electric range of 53 km which, when combined with the internal combustion engine, translates to a range of 1,020 km. This best-in-class electric-only range is attributable to a slick 17.3 kW/h fluid-cooled battery pack.

This vehicle isn't just about the performance figures either; fuel consumption is also pretty impressive. The vehicle offers 94.1 miles per gallon, with carbon emissions falling below 60 grams per km. The Audi Q7 hybrid is also impressively lightweight, thanks in part to a suspension system that is 60 kg lighter than that in previous models. This makes for a lower center of gravity and better handling.

Hybrid SUVs are all the rage these days with several luxury SUV manufacturers all hopping on the bandwagon. The fierce competition mandates that new releases have to be pretty special to stand out, and the Audi Q7 hybrid manages that with its best-in-class electric range.
