Audi Deutscheland details A7 Sportback h-tron quattro

Audi Deutschland has released a video detailing the interesting A7 Sportback h-tron quattro concept. The vehicle was unveiled last week at the Los Angeles Auto Show and now Audi is providing more explanation about the concept through its official account on YouTube but at the moment of writing it’s only available in German.

However, we have all the juicy details about the vehicle which mixes up a fuel cell system with two electric motors and a 8.8 kWh lithium-ion battery. When running on hydrogen, the car has a maximum range of 500 km (310.7 miles) thanks to its four hydrogen tanks which require around three minutes for a full refill. The battery pack grants the concept with an extra 50 km (31.1 miles) and is rechargeable in two hours from a 360-volt source or four hours from a 230-volt source and Audi says the battery can be recharged through energy recuperation.

The two electric motors (front + rear) drive the axles independently and provide the 1,950 kg A7 Sportback h-tron quattro concept with a combined output of 228 bhp and 540 Nm, enough for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 7.9 seconds and a 111.8 mph (180 km/h) maximum speed.
