Electric cars have been the talk of the town recently, especially in cities like Seattle with above-average gas prices and relatively short driving distances. Most electric cars lack a key component - luxury. After all, electric and luxury is an ambitious crossover. After a few long years of research and development, the biggest name in luxury SUVs has pulled it off. Introducing the new 2020 Audi Q5 - the first of the next-gen plug-in hybrid SUVs (The 2020 Audi Q5 will be available with a standard gasoline engine as well).

What's Changed Since 2019?

The Audi Q5 has long been one of the best-selling SUVs in the luxury segment, so Audi has kept all of the basics that made this recipe so successful. It includes a spacious cabin, lots of cargo space, and four wheels that go very fast on all sorts of terrain. The 2019 Audi Q5 had very minor design changes over the 2018 model and that's true for this year as well. And who can complain? The bold front grill looks imposing and gives it a powerful stance, fitting for an SUV.

That said, we do have significant changes to the interior, added engine options, and the drivetrain.

Q5 Plug-in Hybrid

Source: https://www.motorauthority.com/news/1119058_2020-audi-q5-55-tfsi-revealed-as-first-of-audis-next-gen-plug-in-hybrids

Apart from the 3 trims with the same engine, Audi is also introducing the 2020 Audi Q5 55 TFSI e quattro, which will be the first of the new generation of plug-in hybrid Audi lineup. There was no denying the fact that the automotive world is moving towards more eco-friendly vehicles for a while now (and for good reason) but Audi has taken its time to perfect every single detail.

The 2020 Audi Q5 55 TFSI e quattro comes with the same 4-cylinder 2.0-liter engine but attached to that engine is a 140-hp electric motor which increases the total power output from 252-hp to 367 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. 

Despite the extra speed and performance (it will do 0-62 mph in 5.1 seconds), the Plug-In Hybrid of the 2020 Audi Q5 gets better fuel efficiency. Also, if you'd like, you can switch completely to battery power and the luxury SUV will do 25.9 miles - no sweat. With Washington having the third most expensive gas in the United States, you wouldn't mind getting the new 2020 Q5 in Seattle.
