Many shorter journeys can be completed purely on electricity, with the Audi Q5 able to travel for 37 miles* when its 17.9kWh battery is fully charged.
The Q5’s battery is nestled low in the floor, meaning it’s still practical for the family – offering 465 litres of boot space, or up to 1,405 litres once the rear seats are folded.
With the Audi Q5’s hybrid system producing 295bhp, it’s more powerful than all other petrol and diesel versions of the Q5, with the exception of the SQ5.

At the same time, the Q5’s well-loved blend of quality, practicality and refinement are present and correct, and it means that this is one of the finest hybrid SUVs on the market today.

One of the most popular premium SUVs in Europe, the Audi Q5 has spanned two generations with petrol and diesel engines. But recently Audi has expanded the line-up to make it more suitable to more environmentally-conscious buyers, with the TFSI e plug-in hybrid being the result.
Offering up to 37 miles* of electric range, it is an ideal option for those that are able to complete the majority of their journeys as an ‘EV’. There are also noticeable benefit-in-kind tax savings to be had from choosing a plug-in hybrid over a petrol or diesel.
The Audi Q5 has always offered a smart and particularly elegant design, and the TFSI e model is no different. In fact, there aren’t any major styling differences to set it apart from the regular SUV – minus some badging and an additional charging flap on the passenger side rear quarter – but that is no bad thing.
Recently benefitting from further design updates, the latest Audi Q5 is now available with the firm’s advanced OLED lighting, replacing the previous Xenon bulbs. Audi’s singleframe grille also gets a wider appearance, while redesigned air intakes give this SUV a more prominent look out on the road.
All Audi Q5s come with a plentiful amount of technology, including a fully customisable 12.3-inch Audi Virtual Cockpit along with a 10.1-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation and wireless smartphone mirroring.
But if you like your technology, then the flagship Vorsprung has to be the version to go for. It is packed from top to bottom with all of Audi’s latest tech. Starting with driver assistance technology, it is equipped with self-parking functionality, an ‘exit warning’ that stops passengers from opening their car door into passing traffic and rear automatic braking. Other highlights include an impressive 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system and customisable OLED rear lights that are able to display various different patterns.
Engines & Performance
This plug-in hybrid Audi Q5 comes with a single powertrain option known as the ‘50 TFSI e’.
Pairing a 2.0-litre turbocharged TFSI petrol engine with an electric motor, the combined result is 295bhp and 500Nm of torque. All versions also use a seven-speed dual-clutch S tronic automatic transmission and Audi’s quattro four-wheel-drive system.
There are plenty of impressive stats with the Audi Q5 TFSI e. Beginning with acceleration, this SUV is able to sprint from 0-60mph in just 5.9 seconds, and – where permitted – could reach a top speed of 148mph.
Thanks to the 17.9kWh battery, Audi also claims an electric range of up to 37 miles when it’s fully charged. There’s scope for some very low running costs as well, with a combined fuel consumption figure of up to 188.3mpg given, while CO2 emissions vary between 35-39g/km.
All vehicles are tested according to WLTP technical procedures. Figures shown are for comparability purposes; only compare fuel consumption, CO2 and equivalent electric range figures with other vehicles tested to the same technical procedures. These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles, vehicle load (and, for battery electric vehicles, the starting charge of the battery).
