Like most plug-in hybrids, the Audi A7 TFSI e’s claimed economy and emissions figures don’t paint the full picture in terms of what you can expect in the real world. For example, without regular charging, motorists can’t hope to come close to the official claims.

You can choose between three modes. The first, Hybrid, uses sat-nav data to decide whether to run in petrol-electric or pure-electric mode. Next is EV, which solely relies on the battery for power unless there’s not enough charge or the accelerator is pressed hard enough to warrant extra assistance from the engine. Last but not least is Battery Hold, which aims to preserve the charge of the battery until you want to use it.

Audi A7 hybrid MPG & CO2 emissions

Audi claims the maximum electric driving range of the A7 is up to 42 miles. Around 30 is very much achievable in the real world, assuming a mixture of normal driving conditions, including some motorways. Regularly making full use of the battery is a must if there’s any hope of approaching the A7 TFSI e’s official fuel-economy figures of 202-235mpg. Furthermore, CO2 emissions of 33g/km (at most) ensure low company-car tax.
