Recently, the media exposed a group of rendering drawings of Audi A8 e-tron. The new car is positioned as a large pure electric car and will become the new flagship of Audi e-tron family in the future. This set of renderings was drawn by foreign media designer Josh Byrnes. Although it has not been officially recognized by Audi, according to the current development of Audi electrification, this car may become a reality. The future competitors of Audi A8 e-tron may be Mercedes Benz EQS and BMW i7.
At this year’s Munich auto show, Audi has shown the world its latest brand planning electrification strategy, in which the Audi grandsphere concept car has become the most dazzling star on the booth. Audi officials also hinted on the side that this car will become the future A8 electric model, so the shadow of the grandsphere concept car can also be seen in the rendering released this time.
The appearance of the Audi A8 e-tron is round. Different from the traditional Audi A8, the new car adopts a more sporty design, and the headlamp group also adheres to the consistent high recognition of the “lamp field”, and the chrome plated decoration at the front face details looks more exquisite.
In terms of power, referring to the Audi grandsphere concept car, the new car will be built based on the new pure electric PPE platform and share the power module with the upcoming Porsche Macan pure electric and Audi A6 e-tron. The comprehensive power of dual motors is 530KW (710hp) and the peak torque is 960nm. The new car will be equipped with a battery pack with a capacity of 120kwh, with a pure electric range of 750km. Under the 270kw fast charging mode, the power can be charged from 5% to 80% in only 25 minutes.
Editor’s summary: I believe many fans have a new understanding of the electrification development of Volkswagen Group and Audi brand after watching this year’s Munich auto show. As the three German luxury brands, Audi will also open up a new battlefield with Mercedes Benz and BMW for the development of new energy in the near future. Let’s wait and see.
