Volkswagen does not position his hybrid Touareg R over the range, but as a beefy power man, which can also pay attention to consumption and drive purely electrically.

So far, the 421 hp VW Touareg with its beefy V8 diesel has been the undisputed top model in the model range of the Wolfsburger. Officially there is now a new chief that tries to impress potential customers with 340 kW / 462 hp and 700 Nm maximum performance. However, the VW Touareg must make do with the well-known three-liter V6 with the image-prone R-Signet at the rear and the expected sporty ambitions, which produces 250 kW / 340 hp and is already used in numerous group models.

V6 petrol engine instead of V8 diesel-but with electric boost

However, the V6 turbo in the R-Hybrids of the Touareg is supported by an electric motor that provides a further 100 kW / 136 hp and has already helped the Audi A8 PHEV to be sporty genes in a similar form.

Elaborate all -wheel drive

In addition to the eight-speed automatic, the VW Touareg R has a distribution gear on the front and rear axles as well as a self-locking Torsen middle differential with dynamic moments distribution. As a result, depending on the driving style, driving program and grip of the covering, up to 70 percent of the drive power reaches the front or 80 percent to the rear axle.

The plug-in hybrid can drive 140 km/h in an electrically electrical manner and the range without a combustion engine is likely to be around 50 kilometers. The sports SUV weighing over 2.5 tons is electronically sealed off at 250 km/h. The individual driving programs – from sporty to purely electrically – can be controlled in the cockpit at the push of a button.

Without local emissions to the city

In contrast to other plug-in hybrids, the charging level of the lithium-ion battery can be actively controlled via the multifunctional screen. In hybrid mode, the driver has the option of keeping the charging stand on three symbols in addition to the battery display, increasing in 20 percent steps or letting it drop to a defined level. If necessary, the charging level is loaded by the combustion engine and the recuperation according to the preset level on the scale. In order to secure the desired energy content in the battery at the destination – for example the journey in the city center, the on -board electronics take a foresighty street and topography data with an active target management of the navigation system.

  1. @V8 Diesel: Who can afford such a car
    And not exactly a farm around the corner, becomes at least for the V6 or the best … Grab the engine, the V8 TDI.Most always come with the sentence "Nobody needs a person","Far too much performance" "P **** extension" etc.Unfortunately, these are the people who have never driven such an engine and have little idea about the technology.The running rest and strength in the low speed range is simply perfect and long distances can be covered with a pleasant rice..Advantages are low speed and motor load as well as a lower number of switching processes. Consumption is low, system complexity and thus the susceptibility to errors as well. The burden is also low and ergo the lifespan high.Only our consumer society today no longer appreciates.

  2. Diesel is out ?
    Ok the hybrid can drive a few km electrically, well and. How else does he drive ? With air and love something ? Headline is a bit misleading, but we know that…

  3. I’m curious….
    … How the sales figures develop. Whether the diesel engine really "out". View the numbers in 24 months at the latest. I’m curious.

  4. Have I understood that correctly?
    So 462PS are available for a few kilometers, after that only 340PS? Class! Then I pay for permanent 462PS and get significantly less on longer distances … . Also a great deal! In the restaurant, only the first bite tastes, after that it is only average even though I pay full. Strange comparison, but that’s how it is! But that’s how it should be with the salary: I am paid as if I were always 100% power. I’ll wait for it …

  5. Aha,
    And the next tank !!! 2.5 t ? And I had concerns about my G-Class? A car that very few can afford. And if so, then something is certainly leased
