At the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show, Audi presented another concept car which demonstrates the potential of the future Q8 model range. The Audi Q8 sport concept study demonstrates the vision Audi’s developers and designers have for the dynamic yet efficient SUV of tomorrow.
Characteristic aerodynamic features in the front and rear are a prominent part of the Audi Q8 sport concept design.
The highly efficient drive system concept of the study is particularly groundbreaking. The 3.0 TFSI six-cylinder engine featuring a mild hybrid system and an electric powered compressor is a world first. The result: the Q8 sport concept presents itself as a multi-disciplined athlete with a number of talents. Thanks to its 350 kW output and its 700Nm of torque, it sprints from 0 to 100km/h in just 4.7 seconds and keeps going until it reaches its top speed of 275km/h. Meanwhile, its range of more than 1,200 kilometers ensures it is also suitable for long journeys.
Thanks to the superb recuperation performance of 20kW, this prominent SUV holds back when it comes to fuel consumption. Compared with a model equipped with a regular TFSI six-cylinder engine without mHEV system, the Q8 sport concept with its 20kW greater performance consumes around one litre less fuel per 100km – that corresponds to a reduction in CO2 emissions of 25g/km.
