What's new for 2024?


For 2024, the e-Tron and e-Tron Sportback SUVs are redesigned as the Q8 e-Tron and Q8 e-Tron Sportback, presumably to avoid confusion with other members of Audi's growing electric lineup - all of which use some form of e-Tron To mark the occasion, Audi has given the SUV a styling update that includes a redesigned grille, redesigned lighting elements and updated wheel designs. Both models now also have a larger 106.0 kWh battery pack, which should give the Q8 e-Tron models greater range and the ability to better compete with competitors. Last year, the high-performance S e-Tron model was introduced, but this has been personified as the SQ8 e-Tron.


EV engine, power, and performance


Underneath the heavily creased bodywork are two electric motors, one located at the front axle, and the other at the rear. Rear-wheel drive performs the majority of the work while they work together to create electrical all-wheel drive. In normal driving conditions, they generate a combined 355 horsepower and 414 Newton meters of torque. However, putting the transmission in Sport mode opens up briefly and produces the equivalent of 402 horsepower and 490 Nm of torque. Initial driving impressions also revealed that the Q8 e-Tron was fast and distinct. Its brisk acceleration is typical of electric cars, and its smooth, quiet ride quality underscored its bona fides. Its stopping system expertly blended conventional friction brakes with a forced regenerative braking system. However, you're disappointed that its revamp wasn't aggressive enough to enable one-pedal driving. However, the Q8 e-Tron exhibits the characteristics of a traditional SUV with the ability to tow up to 4,000 pounds.


Fuel economy and MPGe in the real world


The EPA hasn't released fuel economy estimates yet for the 2024 Q8 e-Tron SUV, but we expect it will be similar to the 2023 model, which is rated at up to 78 mpg city and 79 mpg highway. . When we get a chance to get our hands on test results for the Q8 e-Tron on the 75-mph highway fuel economy route, which is part of the car's comprehensive testing regimen, we'll update this story with the test results.


Interior, comfort, and cargo


The Q8 e-tron's most impressive technology is its electrical systems, but the five-seat crossover also packs a sophisticated and functional cabin. Its dashboard also includes several high-resolution displays that include the Audi digital instrument cluster - called the Virtual Cockpit - and two touch screens in the center. Of course, there are a variety of upscale options like a head-up display and massaging front seats to round out the Q8 e-tron's sophisticated interior, which benefits from a flat floor thanks to its neatly packaged lower battery pack. This helps provide the regular Q8 e-Tron with a generous cargo area of 29 cubic feet behind the rear row and 57 with the seats folded flat. Both designs are shrunk by two cubes due to the Sportback's sloping roofline.


Information, entertainment, and communication


Each Q8 e-Tron infotainment system operates through dual touchscreens, with a 10.1-inch screen on top and an 8.6-inch unit below. While the top screen provides access to the standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto apps as well as the available Bang & Olufsen audio system, the bottom screen is primarily used to control climate settings. Along with several power points, the system also features a subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot; With an optional wireless smartphone charger available.
