What is the range of the Audi Q8 55 e-tron SUV

Audi Q8 55 e-tron – I recently drove the Audi Q8 55 e-tron SUV. This Is the base model of the Q8 electric range, but it is anything but basic.

It comes with a 114-kilowatt hour battery that has a claimed range of 450km. A more realistic and safer daily figure would be around 400km.

This is a little bit less than I would expect with such a large battery, but it’s a heavy SUV and economy isn’t the greatest.

The Q8 e-tron can be charged at multiple outlets, fast chargers and at home if needed.

It also comes with a complimentary home charger in partnership with Jet Charge and a free six-year subscription to charge fox stations around Australia.

I really like the way the big Q8 drives, with recharge set to automatic, it will roll on like a normal car and yet kick off regenerative braking when needed. For a big SUV it is nimble and responsive.

Its smooth, quiet, and particularly comfortable inside. The layout is typically Audi with the central screens easy to use I love the haptic feedback to touch.

There is plenty of room in the back seats and the boot is spacious.

The Audi Q8 range now has something for everyone. Fully electric, Plug in Hybrid, Petrol, and diesel engines. There is also a choice of body styles, and you can opt for the sport’s ‘S’ or ‘RS’ versions.
