Audi Confirms These 4 Cars For The Singapore Market In 2023
Audi will bring in at least 2 new e-tron models from H2 2023 onwards, starting with the Q8 e-tron and Q8 Sportback e-tron. With improved aerodynamics, greater range, higher charging performance and increased battery capacity, both models reflect Audi’s commitment to transitioning to an all-electric line-up by 2026. We’ve summarised 6 things we need to know about the Q8 e-tron, and now have more clarity on the exact models landing in Singapore.
Audi’s Q8 e-tron “Advanced 50” and more potent “Advanced 55” spec will offer 340bhp and 408bhp respectively, while range can stretch from 491km for the “Advanced 50” to 582km for the latter. The Q8 Sportback e-tron “S line 50” and “S line 55” serves up 340bhp and 408km respectively just like their regular SUV siblings, but range increases by 14km and 18km respectively primarily due to the Sportback’s lower drag coefficient.
Audi will continue to play the big cylinder game by offering the new Audi RS 6 Avant and RS 7 Sportback to customers in Singapore in H2 2023. Both models sport 4.0-litre V8 twin turbo engines.
Horsepower figures take a step up from 600hp to 630hp, and a torque increase of 800Nm to 850Nm makes both hugely competitive even when pitched against challengers from Affalterbach that seem to favour “instant torque fillers” aka batteries at the expense of cylinder count and weight savings. Both the RS 6 and 7 will take only 3.4 seconds to sprint to 100km/h from scratch.
