New Audi Q8 TFSI e

Large SUVs are a popular choice for manufacturers to electrify, and there’s no shortage of plug-in hybrid cars in this category. Given you can already choose Audi’s seven-seat Q7 SUV as a PHEV, it’s little surprise to see that the firm is now introducing an electrified option on to the mechanically-similar Q8 – Audi’s flagship SUV – with the new TFSI e. 

Let’s take a look at what the Audi Q8 TFSI e has to offer. 

What’s the Audi Q8 TFSI e like inside?

As you may expect from Audi’s flagship model, the Q8’s cabin oozes luxury, with high-quality materials featuring from top to bottom, and with a host of finishes from leather to soft plastics and aluminium to Alcantara. Name a premium material and there’s a strong chance it will feature somewhere in the Q8’s vast interior. 

It also benefits from the German manufacturer’s latest cabin technology – including a large touchscreen for the infotainment, a lower screen for the climate settings and also digital dials.

And while the Q8 might lack a seven-seat option like the Q7, it remains a supremely practical car. The boot is quite simply vast, even with a fraction of room taken up by the plug-in hybrid’s batteries, while adults in the rear seats certainly won’t be complaining about space – quite the opposite, in fact. 

What's the exterior like on the Audi Q8 TFSI?​

As Audi’s largest SUV, the Q8 features the prominent and bold styling you might expect - it’s certainly no shrinking violet. The Q8 was the car that helped to usher in a new area of design for the firm’s SUVs, as highlighted with the intricate ‘Singleframe’ front grille, which runs into the headlights and creates a striking design. 

Speaking of the illumination, the Q8 TFSI e comes with the brand’s signature lighting, which gives the car an impressive presence at night – as shown with the light bar which runs across the width of the Q8’s rear end. The lights also display a special sequence when the car is locked and unlocked, which is undoubtedly one of this Audi's greatest party tricks. 

And while it’s perhaps not what you’d call handsome, the Q8 is still an attractive-looking car, with its coupe-like profile giving it a sportier look than the more practicality-focused Q7. 

Q8 TFSI e Technology

As Audi’s flagship model, the Q8 is brimmed with the best of the brand’s technology. From the aforementioned LED lighting to the digitalised interior, SUVs don’t get much more modern than this. 

Other elements of tech you’ll find on the Q8 include satellite navigation that utilises Google Earth mapping to create an ultra-realistic look, while an in-built Wi-Fi hotspot allows your passengers to seamlessly connect their devices to the car. 

The plug-in hybrid also gets an array of specialist technology, which are synced to the ‘myAudi App’. Through this, you can programme when you want the car to start charging – to make the best use of times with cheaper electricity rates – along with check the charging and battery status of the car remotely. You’re also able to access the ‘e-tron charging service’, which gives you convenient hassle-free charging access to electric car chargers across the UK and Europe, with 18 UK charging providers signed up to Audi’s service. 

Q8 TFSI e Performance

The Audi Q8 TFSI e is available with two slightly different powertrains. Both cars feature a 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine mated to an electric motor and 17.8kWh battery, which allows for a 28-mile electric range. That should mean most journeys can be completed just on electricity. 

So on the Q8 55 TFSI e, the total produced is 376bhp and 600Nm of torque, which allows the car to reach 60mph in just 5.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 149mph. Audi also claims it will return 100.9mpg, and deliver CO2 emissions of 67g/km. 

If you fancy a little more power, there is the flagship Q8 60 TFSI e, which produces a punchier 456bhp and 700Nm of torque. That allows it to sprint 0.4 seconds quicker to 60mph than the other model – meaning it takes 5.2 seconds. Its top speed is unchanged. It’s only marginally less efficient, too – still returning 97.9mpg, with CO2 emissions of 66g/km.

All Q8 TFSI e models come with an eight-speed Tiptronic automatic gearbox, which delivers power to all four wheels via Audi’s acclaimed quattro system. 

Which Audi Q8 spec is right for me?

S line 

This might be the ‘entry-level’ trim here, but its standard equipment list doesn’t feel that way. It comes with 21-inch alloy wheels, HD Matrix LED headlights, electric and heated sports seats, an array of safety kit and adaptive air suspension to name but a few features. S line grade is only available on the 55 TFSI e model. 


Upgrade to Competition to get the more powerful 60 TFSI e setup. It also brings larger 22-inch alloy wheels, a black styling kit, red brake callipers and a flat-bottomed sports steering wheel on the cabin.
