Audi A6 Hybrid officially discontinued

The Audi A6 Hybrid is no longer available to order as a result of a poor demand. You might remember that Audi facelifted the A6 family at the beginning of September but there weren’t any images and details about the hybrid version. That makes sense now as the company has decided to axe the model since very few people bought it while it was available.

It was introduced on the market back in 2011 and since then just 4,000 cars were sold, not enough to keep the model alive for the facelifted A6 range. Perhaps the reason for this is because Audi has several very economical yet powerful diesel engines that do a better job at providing fuel-related costs savings.

As a reminder, the Audi A6 Hybrid mixed up a TFSI 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine with an electric motor, with the former providing 211 HP (155 kW) while the latter generated 45 HP (33 kW). This hardware setup granted a combined output of 245 HP (180 kW) which allowed the mid-size hybridized sedan sprint to 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in 7.3 seconds before topping out at 148 mph (238 km/h).

The Audi A6 Hybrid returns 38 mpg US (6.2 liters / 100 km) and offers an all-electric range of only 3 km (1.9 miles) while in hybrid mode it has CO2 emissions of 142 g/km.
