Details of the new Audi Q5 Hybrid have appeared on the internet ahead of the car's likely debut at next week's Los Angeles auto show.

The new model appears to share the same hybrid powertrain that Audi has already premiered in the A8 hybrid design study. Like the flagship saloon, the Q5 will utilise both a 2.0 TFSI petrol engine and an electric motor to offer a combined output of around 241bhp and 354lb ft of torque.
