Actual cost and utility: Audi Q5 50 TFSI e Quattro Advanced


With metallic paint, all-round support in terms of support and connectivity, as well as a few comfort additions like the Q5 Advanced, the plug-in hybrid comes in at over 60,000 euros. You can rightly expect the reason for the high state of well-being. Audi offers this with front seats with strong lateral support, including an extendable seat surface and multi-adjustable headrests. Rear passengers are also happy about the adjustable backrest. They haven’t completely removed the mechanical buttons and controls from the Q5 yet. Its monitor is small and also not very impressive on the display. The Virtual Cockpit can be configured in many ways for this purpose. The two-liter turbo is a powerful boy whose starting weakness is well compensated by the electric motor. And what about fuel, electricity and maintenance costs?

Our test application

Audi offers the 50 TFSI e Quattro Advanced for the Q5 WLTP consumption of 2.0 liters Super and 19.3 kWh per 100 km. He departs from this value in everyday life. We determined an average consumption of 2.5 liters and 20.4 kWh, which results in a cost of 12.48 euros per 100 km. The Audi used 7.1 liters in the eco mode, while it used 9.8 liters in the passenger mode. If the Audi was moved in sports mode, consumption increased to 11.9 liters. Average consumption hybrid is 9.7 liters. On the electric lap only, the power consumption was 27.5 kWh. Fuel costs are calculated using the daily updated fuel prices on our partner website more fat (09/13/2022 / Maximum: 1.95 euros / liter) Electricity costs are calculated using the average household electricity price according to the BDEW Federal Association of Energy and Water Industries eV (average electricity price for a household with an annual consumption of 3,500 kWh: Euro 0.3730/kWh. The basic price is pro rata, including excise duty and basic service tax including new consumer tax, not weighted by volume). The price of electricity at a public charging station is usually high.

Test usage consists of 70% from passenger cycle and 15% Eco and Sport each with empty battery (SOC= state of charge).

Monthly maintenance costs

If you drive resource-efficiently like we do on our eco-lap, the costs per 100 kilometers will be reduced to 13.85 euros. The violent movement resulted in a total of 23.21 euros. The cost in hybrid operation is 18.92 euros. Electricity costs of 10.26 euros apply to the electricity line only. Car tax is ten euros for Audi, liability insurance 500 euros. Partial and comprehensive insurance costs 215 and 749 euros extra respectively. Monthly maintenance costs of 354 euros are paid by those who drive the Audi 15,000 kilometers per year. If the mileage is doubled, the total increases to 711 euros. We leave the loss of value in this calculation.

The Audi Q5 50 TFSI e Quattro Advanced, which costs 63,745 euros, is coming for a used review.

This is how it is tested

Automotive and sports test applications for plug-in hybrids have three different fuel efficiency drives operating in hybrid mode. The so-called “passenger consumption” accounts for 70 percent. This is the trip from home to work, which is an average of 21 kilometers (starting with an empty battery). Economically, the approximately 275 km distance (starting with an empty battery) counts for 15 percent. The remaining 15 percent is accounted for by the sports driver. The length is roughly the same as the circuit, but the route includes a large section of road and therefore a higher speed on average. The extra is a clean E circle. This shows the maximum mileage with a fully charged battery before the combustion engine starts. Consumption is calculated from the measurement of energy consumption including charge losses. The time to fully charge the battery and the amount of energy in the battery, including charging losses, are also measured. The basis for calculating fuel costs is always the price quoted on the “more than tanken” website on the day the article was created.


Monthly maintenance costs include maintenance, parts costs and vehicle taxes based on an assumed annual mileage of 15,000 and 30,000 kilometers without depreciation. The basis of the calculation is the use of trials, a three-year holding period, class SF12 for liability and comprehensive insurance for Allianz including discounts for garages and restrictions for certain drivers (not less than 21 years old). At Allianz, SF12 offers a 34 percent discount on liability and 28 percent on comprehensive insurance.


Conclusion

In the automotive and sports test application, the Audi Q5 50 TFSI e Quattro Advanced, which costs 63,745 euros and has a system output of 299 hp, ends up with an average value of 2.5 liters Super and 20.4 kWh per 100 km. Combined costs of fuel and electricity for this distance is 12.48 euros. Monthly maintenance costs are 354 euros (15,000 km per year) or 711 euros (30,000 km per year).
