We have been hearing about the new Audi Q8 for some time and now the Audi Q8 Sport Concept has been made official at their years Geneva International Motor Show.
The Audi Q8 Sport Concept is powered by a 3.0 TFSI six cylinder engine and a new mild hybrid system and an electric powered compressor that produces 476 horsepower and 516.3 lb-ft of torque.
This gives the new Q8 Sport Concept a 0 to 62 milers per hour time of just 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 170 miles per hour.
Thanks to the superb recuperation performance of 20 kW, 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 20 kW greater performance consumes around one liter less fuel per 100 km – that corresponds to a reduction in CO2 emissions of 25 g/km (40.2 g/mi).
“The drive system of the Audi Q8 sport concept is a major step towards optimizing efficiency and sustainability in large-volume series production. The combination of mild hybrid technology and a TFSI engine sets a new benchmark for the synthesis of electromobility and combustion engines. In the future, this combination will be used in many Audi models,” says Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management at AUDI AG.
