Power delivery with the electric turbo on became instantaneous at low RPMs. It is seriously a rocketship. Peak torque, which I was told remains unchanged with the new turbo, hits earlier and it just keeps pushing; seriously impressive stuff. I was also told that it has an effect on the highway, since it would lessen the need for downshifts to pick up steam.

The SQ5 scoots to 62 MPH in just 5.1 seconds, so it's not a stretch to think this vehicle can hit similar speed goals while still producing better-than-gasoline fuel economy.

The diesel sounded badass too. It had this low rumble that just made it sound evil. Imagine James Earl Jones gargling fire. You know what that sounds like? No? Well that's what it sounds like.

If Audi were to make this car and badge it an S6 TDI, I'd have no issues with that whatsoever. And they better push it on us Americans.
