Company Audi has presented the new SQ5 with a diesel power plant and a 48-volt battery powering an electric compressor and the starter-generator. In the outdated NEDC cycle crossover consumes 6.6 to 6.8 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers.
The structure of the power installation of the Audi SQ5 TDI comes with three-liter diesel V6 capacity of 347 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque (available in a range of from 2500 to 3100 rpm). It is equipped with separate cooling circuits for the crankcase and cylinder head and variable geometry turbocharger and boost pressure to 2.4 bar.
In the inlet channel includes an electric compressor (EPC) connected to semikilometer the motor. 300 milliseconds it spins up to 65 thousand rpm and gives a pressure of 1.4 bar. The turbine helps the compressor at startup and during acceleration from low revs. From zero to “hundreds” SQ5 TDI accelerates in 5.1 seconds, its top speed is limited by electronics on a mark of 250 kilometres per hour.
Moderately-hybrid system, which consists of a starter-generator (BAS) and lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 10 ampere-hours, can save up to 0.7 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers. During deceleration of the vehicle BAS can recycle up to 12 kilowatts of electricity. The start-stop feature in the Audi SQ5 TDI operates at speeds up to 22 miles per hour, and coasting the hybrid system can break the grip of the box and stop the engine for about 40 seconds.
Audi SQ5 TDI comes with vosmidiapazonnym “automatic” and all-wheel drive quattro. In normal mode, it distributes torque in the ratio 40:60, but loss of adhesion up to 70 percent can go to the front and 85 on the rear axle. Improve stability in turns helps the control system of the thrust vector, retarding the inside wheels. Optionally available rear active differential.
In addition, the SQ5 TDI is equipped with underestimated by 30 mm suspension with electronically dampers (adaptive air suspension option) switch driving modes, 20-inch wheels, brake discs with a diameter of 375 mm and sectionshave front calipers.
The German dealers Audi SQ5 TDI will start to arrive this summer. The initial price of the crossover — 67 750 Euro
