Triple driving pleasure

Three electric motors ensure an exceptionally dynamic performance from the Audi SQ8 e-tron Sportback. They enable acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds.

Extraordinarily dynamic appearance

Torque Vectoring

The electric all-wheel drive is complemented by the addition of electric torque vectoring with active and fully variable torque distribution at the rear axle.

Illuminating design

The Audi SQ8 e-tron Sportback shows the way forward for pioneering electric mobility: with the progressive accents of the new Audi badging strategy such as, for example, with the Audi rings in 2D look, a modified front end design and the optional Singleframe projection light.

Sportiness in every detail

With the distinctive front bumper, the wider wheel arches and the diffuser insert in the rear bumper that runs across almost the entire width of the rear. The black painted brake callipers with S logo enhance the sporty impression.

Visionary rear view

The small cameras of the optional virtual exterior mirrors project the images into the interior on 7-inch OLED displays. Despite reflection from the headlights, they recognise approaching vehicles with pin-sharp clarity. They also help to improve aerodynamic drag.

Progressiveness transformed into light

The optional digital matrix LED headlights sharpen the character of your Audi SQ8 e-tron Sportback. The adaptive light distribution, the lane light and the orientation light assist with driving. The hazard warning projects a warning symbol onto the road in the event of accidents and hazard spots.

Sporty ambience in premium quality

The interior is rounded off by stainless steel pedals. In addition, the S model is distinguished by floor mats with S logo.

High-end spatial experience

The consistently sporty character is visible in the interior. The sport seats plus, front in Valcona leather, black with rhombus pattern and S embossing define the ambience. The seat upholstery with contrasting stitching in rock grey are a further eye-catcher.

More room for sportiness

Enjoy some extra space. The spacious interior offers space in the rear for up to three people. The luggage compartment offers an impressive capacity of up to 528 litres and can be increased to as much as 1,567 litres with the seats folded down. Use the additional 62 litres of space under the bonnet as a practical storage option.

Faster charging

Fast charging is now possible with up to 170 kW at High Power Charging stations. With the e-tron route planner, charging stops are integrated into the route guidance in such a way that the high charging capacity can be used effectively.

Recover energy. Thanks to recuperation

The recuperation system can be used to recover energy, both when coasting and braking. Recuperation when coasting is activated when you take your foot off the accelerator. The degree of recuperation is selected automatically or manually via the steering wheel paddles – adjustable in three stages.

Everything in view

The displays in the Audi virtual cockpit lets you keep an eye on possible recuperation and the remaining range. If you use intelligent MMI route planning, the remaining range is calculated even more precisely, e.g. with information on topography and traffic situation.
