New Audi A6 plug-in hybrid pricing revealed
Audi has announced pricing for its new A6 plug-in hybrid model.
Priced from £52,790, the new model - badged A6 50 TFSI e - utilises a hybrid setup that combines a 2.0-litre petrol engine with an electric motor, which together produce 295bhp and 450Nm of torque.
Thanks to a large battery, the A6 can manage up to 34 miles on electric power alone at speeds of up to 84mph.
Audi claims CO2 emissions figures as low as 35g/km - depending on specification - which equals a benefit-in-kind rate of as low as 10 per cent, meaning that the A6 is likely to be a sure-fire hit with company car buyers. It also requires no vehicle excise duty to be paid for the first year of ownership.
Andrew Doyle, director of Audi UK, said: “Audi has a long and distinguished history in the executive class, but what is less well known is that we also developed our first petrol-electric hybrid car for this segment over thirty years ago.
“We’re bringing to bear the three decades of formative experience in hybrid production that began with that Audi duo model back in 1989 in this latest, state-of-the-art TFSI e model.
“In the UK, we have also combined the impressive efficiency which secures the TFSI e a very competitive taxation position of as little as 10 per cent BIK for company car drivers and no VED in the first year with the kind of exceptional specification offer our customers have come to expect from us, particularly in the Vorsprung version.”
The A6 is available in Sport, S Line, Black Edition specifications as well as a new tip-top Vorsprung Edition. Standard equipment includes 18-inch wheels, Matrix LED headlights and a range of exterior body kits.
