The A8 is electrified, but the range does not impress.
The plug-in hybrid Audi A8 L TFSI e quattro (the long-wheelbase version) is one of several plug-ins that Audi introduced in the U.S. market (besides two all-electric e-tron versions and theQ5 PHEV)
The 2020 model year version was rated by EPA at 17 miles (27.4 km) of all-electric range and energy consumption (in EV mode) of 54 MPGe – 624 Wh/mi (388 Wh/km).
That’s not a huge achievement, especially considering there is a 14.1 kWh battery inside, but maybe at least some of the customers will be able to utilize it for a daily commute. For long-distance travel, it does not bring much of an improvement over ICE.
2020 Audi A8 L TFSI e quattro EPA rating:
- EV mode: 54 MPGe – 624 Wh/mi (388 Wh/km)
- Hybrid mode: 23 MPG
The 2020 Audi A8 L 60 TFSI e quattro was priced at $94,000 (plus $995 destination charge), which after deducting the federal tax credit ($6,712) it’s effectively $88,283.
The latest announcement about the 2021 model year version says that the MSRP price will go up to $95,900 (that’s about 10 thousand above the base ICE.) and effectively $90,183.
