New Audi A8 Hybrid With 2.0-Liter 4-Cylinder Engine

Audi has debuted the Audi A8 Hybrid at Geneva Motor Show 2010. This gasoline-electric hybrid version of the 2011 Audi A8 is scheduled to enter production next year. The car is powered by a 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder gasoline engine with 211HP and 350 Nm (258.15 lb-ft) and an electric motor delivering 45HP and 211 Nm (155.63 lb-ft) of torque. The 2.0 TSI engine is linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission while the electric motor draws energy from a lithium-ion battery pack mounted at the rear. This hybrid car is said to be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.6 seconds with a top speed of 235 km/h. [The New York Times]
