Audi Q8 e-tron drivetrain and motors
Audi Q8 has an improved drivetrain compared to the Audi e-tron with a larger battery and increased efficiency.
Audi built the Audi Q8 e-tron on an extensively adapted variant of the modular longitudinal platform (MLB Evo).
The MLB Evo platform is a shared platform that includes ICE, like Lamborghini URUS and Audi A8.
But Audi created an entirely new dedicated chassis and body for the e-tron. As a result, you can’t compare with other EVs like VW Golf or others that use modified ICE chassis that negatively affect range and design.
Its foundation is a new body shape with numerous innovative structural elements in the lower area of the vehicle center and the roof.
Audi improved the drivetrain for the Audi Q8 e-tron with larger batteries, improved motors, steering, aerodynamics, and steering.
Below you will find details about the essential components of that drivetrain.
