The 2013 Audi A8 Hybrid will be powered by a pretty efficient parallel hybrid system, which includes a 2.0 liter TFSI 4-cylinder turbo engine making 211-hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and an electric-motor making 54-hp and 155 lb-ft of torque. Together, the system outputs 245-hp with a maximum torque of 345.03 lb-ft. Mated to an 8-speed tiptronic transmission, the A8 Hybrid goes from 0 to 62 mph in 7.7 seconds with a top speed of 146 mph.
What about the fuel-efficiency? Audi says that the A8 Hybrid can travel at speeds of up to 62 mph on electric power alone, and cover around 1.86 miles with zero local emissions at a constant speed of 37. Fuel-consumption comes in under 6.4 liters per 100 km or 36.7 mpg in U.S. terms.
