Believe it or not, a long time that there is life beyond the Toyota Prius hybrid car if we talk makes. The strict anti-pollution standards and increasingly valued efficiency consumption without loss of performance are leading the way, and hybrid alternatives are a good answer for this type of demand. So brands are increasingly turning to this form of strong mobility, and it is not uncommon to see in almost all manufacturers have some models with hybrid versions in their catalogs.

For Audi, said hybrid offensive began three years ago, providing consumers with such a configuration versions for their models Q5, A8 and A6 sedan. They ride a mechanical 2.0 TFSI develops 211 horsepower. Attached to it, we found a 54 hp electric motor which combined provide a total power of 245 hp. For the Audi A6 Hybrid, the vehicle could run over two miles of completely electric and can reach 100 km / h without using the combustion engine. In addition, benefits were excellent, reaching a top speed of 238 km / h and accelerates from 0-100 km / h in just 7.3 seconds, with combined consumption of 6.2 liters.

However, now that the Audi A6 has undergone a recent facelift to keep the flattery of its competitors, the Ingolstadt firm has decided to retire at the hybrid version. The reason? Well, as is usual in such cases, the low volume of sales.

And since hit the market, the Audi A6 Hybrid has recorded a volume of 4,000 units produced, representing the Asian market 80% of these sales (in the US is not marketed) this indicates that the balance in Europe, if not sad, miserable.

And we must not forget that the culture of diesel remains well entrenched in our market, and the price of the hybrid version was around 60,000 euros, which made ​​it a more expensive model than his brothers diesel offering similar performance and lower consumption. As an example, meaning that the diesel version that was equal in power to the Hybrid, the 3.0 TDI 245 is priced lower than 3000 hybrid, with a consumption of 0.2 liters and better performance even lower as it accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 6.1 seconds and reaches a top speed of 250 km / h.
