If you think electric vehicles are boring and slow, think again. The 2023 Audi SQ8 e-tron is here to prove you wrong. It's a high-performance SUV that combines a stunning design, a luxurious interior, and a beastly drivetrain that can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds.
The 2023 Audi SQ8 e-tron is the latest addition to Audi's growing lineup of electric vehicles, which includes the e-tron GT sedan, the Q4 e-tron compact SUV, and the e-tron Sportback coupe. The SQ8 e-tron is based on the Q8, Audi's flagship SUV, but with a sportier twist.
A distinctive look
The Audi SQ8 e-tron has a distinctive look that sets it apart from other electric SUVs on the market. It has a large hexagonal grille with vertical slats, LED headlights with matrix technology that can create different light patterns and animations, and a sloping roofline that gives it a coupe-like silhouette. The rear features a full-width light strip, a spoiler, and four exhaust tips that hint at its performance potential.
The 2023 Audi SQ8 e-tron also has some unique elements that distinguish it from the regular Audi Q8 e-tron models. It has larger air intakes, black accents on the grille and mirrors, 21-inch wheels (with optional 22-inch wheels), and red brake calipers. The SQ8 e-tron is available in two body styles: squareback and fastback (called the Sportback). The Sportback has a more dynamic look with a lower roofline and a sharper rear window angle.
