Need to know
Equipped with Audi’s latest hybrid technology, the Q5 Sportback TFSI e adopts a larger battery that allows for up to 37 miles of electric-running ability from a charge.
Audi’s ‘predictive efficiency’ works with the satellite navigation system and is able to efficiently work out where and when is the best time to run the car on electricity, while also conserving EV-running ability for going through a city or entering an urban area.
Despite the coupe-like roof lining, the Q5 Sportback TFSI e is still a very practical choice that offers plenty of interior space.

The Audi Q5 TFSI e is one of the most popular hybrid premium SUVs on the market, and there was an inevitability that the line-up would extend to the recently-introduced Sportback model. Designed for those wanting an efficient plug-in hybrid SUV with additional style, this SUV fulfils its design brief perfectly.
Offering up to 37 miles of electric-only running ability, the Q5 Sportback TFSI e is ideal for those able to complete all or the majority of their journeys while running on electricity.
The Audi Q5 is renowned for its classy and elegant design and that’s taken up a notch with the Sportback. Introducing the increasingly popular coupe-like profile to this mid-size SUV, it brings additional style thanks to an earlier sloping roofline that tapers into a more angled rear window. Hybrid TFSI e badging is very subtle on the Q5 too, with the only real giveaway being the addition of a charging port.
There are plenty of different looks on offer with the Q5 Sportback too, depending on your trim level of choice. From the more subtle Sport version that rides on smaller 18-inch alloy wheels through to bolder-looking Black Edition model.
The hybrid technology fitted to the Audi Q5 Sportback TFSI e is of particular note, as the way the car is able to cleverly switch between modes and make the most of the electric-only running ability is particularly impressive.
Special algorithms decide when to turn the engine off to maximise coasting or energy recuperation, while a predictive efficiency setting works in combination with the satellite navigation system to work out when is best to use the electric – such as if a driver is entering a city of heavily polluted area on their route.
The myAudi app also really helps when it comes to charging, as you’re able to schedule when the car will start and stop charging through your smartphone, allowing you to make the most of cheaper overnight energy tariffs if you’re able to plug in the vehicle at home.
Engines & Performance
Audi offers a single plug-in hybrid powertrain on this Q5 Sportback. Called the ‘50 TFSI e’, it pairs a turbocharged 2.0 TFSI petrol engine with an electric motor for a combined output of up to 295bhp and 450Nm of torque. Power is delivered to all four wheels with Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive system, with a seven-speed S tronic automatic gearbox.
Audi has also kitted the Q5 Sportback TFSI e with a larger battery, with a net size of 17.9kWh, of which 14.4kWh is usable.
It’s the Q5 Sportback TFSI e’s efficiency figures that really stand out, with Audi claiming between 141.2mpg and 156.9*mpg (depending on specification), though you’ll need to charge regularly and rarely rely on petrol to observe figures like those. CO2 emissions also stand at between 42 and 45g/km*, making it an appealing choice for company car drivers.
Though it’s certainly not lacking in performance, either, with this plug-in hybrid SUV able to sprint from 0-60mph in 5.9 seconds, while the top speed is limited to 148mph, where permitted.
*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).
