Three Modes
The Q5 Plug-In automatically starts in all-electric mode when charged, but can also operate in hybrid mode to take advantage of both powertrains, or in a battery hold mode to reserve battery power for later all-electric use. Hybrid mode is activated automatically when the driver uses route guidance in the MMI navigation system to optimize battery power over the route, which helps reduce fuel consumption based on a variety of data points including speed limits, types of roads, and the latest data from onboard sensors.
