Audi’s debut electric SUV is refreshed and renamed.

It’s already been four years since 2018 when the Audi e-tron SUV firmly brought the luxury electric mobility world an offering from the four rings. Since then, it’s served as an aspirational standard in the luxury electric SUV space, with its competent driving characteristics and ample luxury appointments and amenities. As Audi looks to transition its entire brand lineup to feature electric vehicles, the e-tron has been renamed for its new generation to the Audi Q8 e-tron, offered both as an SUV and as a Sportback model, and it helps Audi along its journey from going to 8 electric models currently, to over 20 by 2026.
