Audi has unveiled a plug-in hybrid version of its A6 executive car.
Badged 55 TFSI e, it pairs a 2.0-litre, 252hp petrol engine with a 143hp electric motor, for a combined maximum output of 367hp.
It has four-wheel drive, and a seven-speed automatic gearbox.
It is said to offer a pure electric driving range of 32 miles on the WLTP test cycle, thanks to a 14.1kWh battery, which can be fully recharged from empty in around two-and-a-half hours using a 7.4kW charger.
Drivers will be able to use the MyAudi app to manage vehicle charging, and also to pre-set the climate control system.
Based on the regular S Line equipment grade, the 55 TFSI e features lowered sports suspension, matrix LED lights, privacy glass and a black styling package.
Orders are expected to open in November, with the first UK deliveries early next year.
Prices are yet to be announced.
