Audi’s A7 Sportback H-Tron plug-in hybrid fuel cell electric vehicle was unveiled at the 2014 LA Auto Show. Just a concept for now, the vehicle uses an AC charging inlet to recharge an 8.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack.
The battery pack gives the vehicle an electric range of 50 kms, and in addition to the 4 hydrogen tank, total range is 500 kms.
Similar to the Tesla Model S Dual Motor, the Audi A7 H-tron uses one electric motor on each axle. 0-60 mph time is 7.8 seconds, with a top speed of 130 mph.
It covers over 500 kilometers (310.7 mi) on one tank of fuel – and its exhaust emits nothing more than a few drops of water: The A7 Sportback h tron quattro uses a powerful, sporty electric drive with a fuel cell as its energy source, in combination with a hybrid battery and an additional electric motor in the rear. Its drive configuration makes the emission-free Audi A7 Sportback h-tron quattro a quattro through and through, with 170 kilowatts of power at its disposal – a new departure in fuel cell cars. There is no mechanical connection between the front and rear axles. As an e quattro, the A7 Sportback h-tron quattro features fully electronic management of torque distribution.
