What is the Q8 e-tron?
Despite the new name, the 2024 Audi Q8 e-tron is very much the Audi e-tron SUV that came before it, albeit with a number of improvements in key areas. The e-tron was one of the first fully electric luxury SUVs that came to the U.S. market, and for 2024 it's getting a raft of updates that include that new Q8 moniker. It keeps its floor-mounted battery, standard all-wheel drive thanks to front and rear electric motors, and two-row five-passenger layout. From there, the 2024 model receives more range, sportier handling and a few other tweaks. Read on to find out if this renewed e-tron is now good enough to be a worthy competitor to the BMW iX, Mercedes-Benz EQE, Rivian R1T and Tesla Model X.
