The Audi Q7 e-tron TDI Quattro debuted at the Geneva auto show with a new plug-in hybrid powertrain that pairs an electric motor with a turbodiesel V-6 engine.

We hadn’t previously heard plans about this car coming to the U.S., but now Automotive News Europe is reporting that the plug-in Audi Q7 will reach our shores with a slightly different powertrain.

his report says that the U.S.-spec Audi Q7 e-tron will use a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline four-cylinder engine instead of the turbodiesel V-6 in the European car. It should still have the same Quattro all-wheel-drive system, eight-speed automatic transmission, and electric drivetrain as the TDI diesel version, though we don’t know how the gasoline engine will affect the TDI’s combined power of 373 hp or quoted efficiency number of 118 mpg combined. The e-tron TDI is also said to have an electric-only driving range of 35 miles on a full charge, which could change slightly for the gasoline version.
