As you can see from the dyno graph chart showing horsepower (red line) and torque (blue line), most of the VW Touareg hybrid and Porsche Cayenne hybrid electric motor’s assist is at low engine rpm.
With the electric motor’s assist, the combined torque curve is almost flat up to 4000 rpm and then begins to trail down. This means the engine will have tons of pick-up and throttle response down low. The engine by itself is a supercharged V6 used in the Audi S4, the sport version of the A4, so it is no slouch.
The transmission is rated to handle up to 627 lb-ft of torque so there should be room for tuners to increase the boost and fueling on the supercharged engine. The question is can the rest of the drivetrain take it?
