The Audi Foundation is raffling off another new Audi to help raise funds for a range of charity partners.
For the Foundation’s 11th raffle, the grand prize is a plug-in hybrid Audi Q5 Sportback TFSI e in Navarra Blue, valued at $125,148 drive-away.
Raffle tickets cost $50 and are available for purchase until December 6, 2023. They can be purchased online at this link.
The raffle is open to all Australian residents – except those in Western Australia – aged 18 years old or over.
Winners will be drawn randomly from all eligible entrants on Friday June 16, 2024 at 3:00pm AEST and announced on the Audi Foundation website.
Proceeds from the raffle go to the Audi Foundation’s charity partners, which include The Smith Family, R U OK?, ReachOut, The Children’s Cancer Institute, Humpty Dumpty Foundation, Youth Opportunities, Zephyr Education Inc and Country Education Foundation of Australia.
The Audi Foundation says it has donated $6 million to charity partners since its inception in 2017.
Past raffle prizes have included an RS5 Sportback, RSQ3 Sportback and SQ8 TFSI.
This year’s prize is the recently introduced plug-in hybrid version of Audi’s popular Q5.
This mates a 195kW/370Nm 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with a 105kW/350Nm electric motor and a 14.4kWh (net) lithium-ion battery pack.
System power and torque are listed at 270kW and 500Nm respectively, making the 55 TFSI e the most powerful production Audi Q5 to date – it packs even more power than the SQ5.
Drive is sent to Audi’s quattro all-wheel drive system, which can decouple the rear axle under low load for enhanced efficiency. Unlike some other adaptive AWD systems, Audi’s quattro ultra tech defaults to all-wheel drive and will only disconnect the rear axle when it’s not needed.
The electric motor is mounted between the 2.0 TFSI petrol engine and the seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission.
Zero to 100km/h takes a claimed 5.3 seconds in the Q5 PHEV, just 0.2s off the claim of the SQ5 TDI (5.1s).
