Audi Q8 PHEV- No range anxiety issues

Audi Q8 PHEV – Audi like a lot of manufacturers is moving more models to lower or zero driving emission sources. One such model is the Q8 60 TFSI e-quattro S Line. That’s a mouthful.

This offers buyers a choice of localised EV only driving with zero range anxiety issues for longer trips. One clever feature is that drivers can choose to operate like a normal hybrid by turning off the EV drive.

The Q8 PHEV comes with a 17.9kWh battery that is good for a realistic EV range of around 50km. It also has a 3.0L TFSI V6 Petrol engine. This drives all four wheels through the Audi quattro system and a eight speed tiptronic transmission.

The combination is enough for a 0-100km/h time of 5.4 seconds.

Of course, being an Audi Q8 S-Line it comes with a load of premium comfort and luxury features. Heated seats and wireless smartphone connectivity and charging amongst the most practical.

The Q8 PHEV is priced from a bit over $148,000 plus the usual costs.

Plug in hybrid vehicles are good for buyers that are methodical and have a convenient place to charge. Otherwise its too easy to forget the daily charging and simply drive on petrol.
