A Look at New Audi Hybrid and Electric Models

Audi is leading the way when it comes to hybrid and electric vehicles. These vehicles allow you to enjoy enhanced performance and fuel efficiency while enjoying all the luxury and style that an Audi has to offer. Right now, you can find Audi's complete lineup of hybrid and electric vehicles at Rusnak/Westlake Audi near Thousand Oaks. Here is a look at what Audi has to offer with its hybrid and electric lineup.

What is a Hybrid Vehicle?

A hybrid vehicle is a car or SUV that comes with both a gas and an electric powertrain-perfect for commuting from Malibu to Westlake Village. At lower speeds, the vehicle will use the electric engine to provide for less fuel usage. When you approach higher speeds, the gas engine will begin to contribute to the vehicle's momentum. The overall benefit of a hybrid engine is that you will enjoy better fuel efficiency.

What is an Electric Vehicle?

An electric vehicle is a vehicle that is propelled by an electric motor or a series of electric motors. Known as EV vehicles, these vehicles offer several advantages over gas-powered vehicles. One advantage of an EV vehicle is that you don't have to purchase gas anymore. You can simply plug your vehicle into your home's power outlet and fuel the vehicle overnight.

Another advantage of an EV vehicle is that you get instant torque. That means that you can get quicker acceleration from a standstill. Overall, EV vehicles offer you many ways to transform your driving experience.

Experience Fuel Economy Like Never Before with a Hybrid Audi

It's no secret that Los Angeles drivers love the ability to tackle chaotic morning commutes or long drives out to Malibu without having to worry about their gas tank and where their next refuel is coming from. With a hybrid Audi model, that fear is virtually erased thanks to impressive fuel economy numbers that you never thought possible.

Whether you're committing to an all-electric model like the Audi e-tron® and Audi e-tron® Sportback, or going for a blend of gas and electric power with a model like the Audi A8 L or the Audi Q5e, you'll experience variations on fuel efficiency that you won't find in all-gas models.

If you drive an all-electric model like the Audi e-tron®, you'll enjoy up to 200-miles driving range from your electric motor before you have to recharge. Those that choose to drive a plug-in hybrid option will find a blend of numbers that may be hard to understand at first. For example, the Audi A8 L features a 17-mile electric-only range, while the Q5e features a 20-mile electric-only range. This means that you can drive using only the electric motor's power for that many miles and use no gas. This is perfect for a quick jaunt over to Thousand Oaks or Westlake Village.

When utilizing your gas and electric motor simultaneously, you'll enjoy even more impressive fuel economy numbers. For example, the Audi A8 L can drive for a combined 58 MPGe. The Audi Q5e, on the other hand, is estimated for 23-miles-per-gallon in the city and 28-miles-per-gallon on the highway. These are impressive ratings for an SUV.
