1. Range

The Audi Q8 e-tron provides a long range thanks to its large battery capacity. For example, the Audi Q8 55 e-tron quattro has a high-voltage battery with a capacity of up to 114 kWh. This allows it to drive up to 600 kilometres on a single battery charge (according to WLTP).

 

When the battery charge level is low, further range potential can be exploited by activating Range mode in the MMI. Range mode limits the top speed to 90 km/h and lowers convenience functions such as automatic climate control or deactivates seat heating.

2. Quick charging

Thanks to a charging capacity of up to 170 kW, the Audi Q8 e-tron can now be charged even faster at high-power charging stations. For the Audi Q8 55 e-tron quattro and the Audi SQ8 e-tron, this means that the traction battery charges from 10 to 80%¹ within 31 minutes. The stable charging curve, with high charging power over a wide range of the charging process, also shortens downtimes at the charging station.

 

With the e-tron route planner, charging stops are integrated into the route in such a way that the charging power can be used effectively. The e-tron route planner is part of Audi connect Navigation & Infotainment (depending on country-specific availability).

5. Driving experience

5. Driving experience

Fully electric quattro performance in the Audi Q8 e-tron as standard ensures high driving stability and superior traction. The electric all-wheel drive regulates the ideal distribution of drive torque on both axles in a manner that is permanent and fully variable, responsive and precise. As a result, it combines the efficiency of single-axle drive with the driving dynamics and traction of all-wheel drive.

 

When driving at lower speeds, the Audi Q8 e-tron uses only the rear electric engine for propulsion. If the driver requests more power than it can provide, the control units activate the engine on the front axle. In many situations, this activation takes place ahead of time, before slippage occurs on slippery roads or during fast cornering, or the car understeers or oversteers.

 

In addition, electric torque vectoring regulates the shifting of torques between the rear wheels in just a few milliseconds. When the car turns quickly into a corner, the electric engine allocates additional torque to the outer rear wheel, while the inner rear wheel is braked accordingly.

²Audi defines net carbon neutrality as a status where, despite having exploited other possible reduction measures in relation to CO2 emissions caused by our products or activities, remaining and/or currently unavoidable CO2 emissions in connection with the supply chain, manufacturing or recycling of our vehicles are, at least in terms of quantity, offset by voluntary compensation projects worldwide. CO2 emissions generated during the operational phase of a vehicle (i.e. as of the time the vehicle is handed over to the customer) are not taken into account.
