2012 Audi A8

By luanpa in | November 10, 2010 | (2) Comments

The 2012 Audi A8 will be offered as a hybrid, with a four-cylinder gasoline engine being paired with an electric motor. It is Audi’s first foray into large-car hybrid drive.

The autdi A8 Hybrid will likely be offered after Audi has launched a front-wheel drive six-cylinder diesel version, both of which should provide quite a different driving experience compared to the 372 horsepower 4.2-liter V8 currently available

2012 Audi A8 is not ultra-green, with CO2 emissions of 231.75 grams/mile, but it’s not terrible, either–that figure is about 40 percent higher than a Toyota Prius. When you consider the A8 Hybrid is a full-size executive sedan with 245 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque, that figure’s not bad at all.

The low emissions are thanks in part to the ability to drive in pure electric mode up to 40 mph, though that will only last 1.2 miles at a stint before the hybrid system needs to regenerate energy from the car’s kinetic energy. Fuel consumption is rated at 38 mpg US, also a solid figure.
