Audi has given its flagship electric SUV a major makeover for 2024, renaming it as the Q8 e-tron and updating its design, technology, and performance. The Audi Q8 e-tron, which was previously known as the e-tron, is Audi’s answer to rivals such as the BMW iX, the Mercedes-Benz EQC, and the Tesla Model X. It offers a spacious and luxurious cabin, a sleek and sporty exterior, and a powerful and efficient electric drivetrain uses more coils to generate its electromagnetic field. This reduces energy losses and increases efficiency. The Audi Q8 e-tron also benefits from enhanced aerodynamics thanks to a new front grille with active shutters that open or close depending on cooling needs and optimized underbody panels that reduce drag.
The Q8 e-tron’s exterior design has been refreshed with new headlights and taillights that feature LED matrix technology and dynamic turn signals. The front bumper has been reshaped with larger air intakes and chrome accents, while the rear bumper has been simplified with integrated exhaust tips. The Audi SQ8 quattro stands out with black trim elements, larger wheels, red brake calipers, and quad exhaust tips.
