The 2021 Audi A7 Plug-In Hybrid is a stylish Sportback that looks very handsome and modern. Its plug-in hybrid setup can produce a lot of power, and its price will start at around $76,000. Moreover, Audi will sell its new model this fall. The manufacturer revealed its A7 PHEV model early last year, and the plug-in variant will be available in the U.S.
Some other models will use the similar or the same configuration, including Q5 and A8. Like the regular A7, the PHEV variant will gain the same modifications for 2021. Audi provides a lot of trim levels and optional packages, so here is what you need to know about the new model.
2021 Audi A7 Plug-In Hybrid Design
The upcoming 2021 Audi A7 Plug-In Hybrid comes with an S line exterior design. That means you will get a sportier front fascia. Audi will improve some aspects of the vehicle. For a start, the front end has been revised, and it comes with illuminated tread plates and new LED headlights. Audi will also work on some new mechanics, such as suspension.
Thanks to that, ride height will be lowered by 0.8 inches. Generally, the A7 PHEV model looks very handsome, and it wears plenty of modern exterior features. From what we know, the side profile and rear section won’t suffer any type of change. On the other hand, new exterior paints are very likely to happen.
Incredible Looking Cabin
The al-new 2021 Audi A7 Plug-In Hybrid model comes with great interior design. The cabin is full of high-tech amenities, and Audi’s virtual cockpit is standard. A 360-degree overhead-view camera is standard as well, along with four-zone climate control. The Executive Package comes with ventilated front seats and heated rear seats. Adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitors, and active lane assist are available as well.
The Prestige variant comes with more equipment, larger display, and power soft-closing doors system. If you want the best possible version, the Luxury Package is the answer. This package comes with exclusive leather upholstery and amazing massaging functions. No matter which package you choose, Audi A7 will look and feel very premium and luxury.
2021 Audi A7 Plug-In Hybrid Engine
The forthcoming 2021 Audi A7 Plug-In Hybrid will produce 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. This version uses a turbo-four 2.0-liter gasoline engine and an electric motor. Interestingly, the electric motor adds 27 horses and torque level is the same as in the regular A7 model. The hybrid system is paired with Audi’s Quattro AWD system and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The hybrid system gives the driver the ability to choose where the power will go and how much power comes out from the engine or the motor.
The vehicle automatically activates the hybrid mode when route guidance is in use. Moreover, A7 PHEV will automatically optimize the battery and engine, so the efficiency is better. EV mode is in use for as long as the driver doesn’t accelerate quickly. We are still waiting for the manufacturer to provide exact fuel efficiency details and some other figures. A7 PHEV will offer a 14.1-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that provides 17 miles of all-electric driving range and 54 MPGe. However, this isn’t official.
Price and Release Date
The price of the new 2021 Audi A7 Plug-In Hybrid starts at $76,000. As we said, the automaker offers a lot of optional packages. For instance, the Premium Plus version will cost up to $85,000, and the Prestige version around $91,000. The sales will start this fall, and the PHEV variant will be available in the U.S.
