The German model will reach the European market in the coming months with a value of more than €70,000
Audi aims to increase the development of electric motors by launching another hybrid model of the 2020 line. The Q8 TFSIe Quattro has a 3.0 combustion engine and lithium-ion battery, which is in the luggage compartment. This will raise the car’s total power to 462 horsepower in the top-of-the-range version.
According to the German automaker, the two versions of the car (Q8 55 TFSIe Quattro and Q8 60 TFSIe Quattro) have Tiptronic automatic transmission with eight speeds and smooth gear changes, and can reach up to 100km / h in 5.4 seconds.
Battery and efficient driving modes
Among the most advantageous of the many benefits that the Coupé SUV provides is its automatic choice of operating mode, which helps the driver to save on fuel and battery power. However, the driver can also choose less economical alternatives.
The car also offers up to seven driving modes, ranging from comfort to all-road, which adapts the air suspension to give the car a sporting performance.
Rapid energy recovery
For owners who want good autonomy and a fast charge, the Q8 TFSIe Quattro has everything you could desire.
The battery has a range of 59 km and recovers energy when the car enters “neutral”. According to the company, it can recover up to 25kW of power just by inertia.
Both versions of the German car have the adaptive cruise assistant as an option, which informs the driver when to accelerate or decelerate the vehicle. If the system is off, the driver receives the information through the head-up display (optional) or the virtual cockpit (series).
The technology is also present inside the Coupê SUV. This has the myAudi application that enables customers to take advantage of the automaker’s exclusive services, as well as the Media Center, giving them compatibility with the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto systems.
There is no lack of luggage space
For those who like to hit the road, the German model is a good option to buy. The trunk has a capacity of 505 liters, even in the most basic model, and 1625 liters, if the rear seats are folded.
The automaker expects the model to reach the European market with a price of €75,000 for version 55 and €92,800 for the top-of-the-range version.
