Speaking about its design, the Audi Q8 e-tron comes demanding a strong and robust road presence. Instead of a conventional Audi front grille, the SUV gets a mix of closed panel and mesh grille with the brand logo sitting at the centre top. The all-black glossy panel is flanked by sharp Matrix LED headlamps featuring integrated LED daytime running lights. The side profile looks clean and suave and only the large wheels grab attention. Moving to the back, it gets sleek LED taillights connected by a slim LED strip running through the centre of the tailgate.
Inside the cabin, the EV gets a plush and feature-packed look. The design elements include a sculpted dashboard featuring a fully digital instrument cluster, and a large driver-oriented touchscreen infotainment system. The centre console boasts a sleek touch panel.
Speaking of the new Audi Q8 e-tron’s specifications, the car will be available in 50 and 55 trims. The entry-level e-tron 50 gets power from a 95 kWh battery pack, while the top-spec 55 trim gets a large 114 kWh battery pack onboard. The top trim offers a range of up to 600 km on a single charge.
