Back in 2013 I got the Audi e-Tron book on what’s to expect for the future. This photo is in the book from Audi on the Audi A8 e-Tron!
Yet as the Audi Drivers Club Reports:
It’s no secret that Death Valley, California is a popular place for car manufacturers. Car manufacturers to test in extreme temperatures. In as much, keeping an eagle eye when in the area is well worth. So it as you may spy something that hasn’t been seen before. Case in point is Audi Club member Troy Sicotte who was cruising through the area. Then he noticed an as-of-yet-unseen Audi A8L e-tron. Thereby hiding in plain sight.
Given the A8 has already been revealed on a show stand and is even on the market in Europe, it’s doubtful Audi felt any need to disguise its long-wheelbase sedan. The brand even revealed some information on its upcoming e-tron quattro version when the car was first shared with press last summer. Even still, images of the A8L e-tron with its unique bumper and grille treatments hasn’t been revealed yet and so it’s news to viewers.
In conclusion and as they ask, what do we know about the A8L e-tron? So Press on the location at the Audi Summit in Barcelona last summer.
It’s because publications such as electriccarsreport.com, reveal the A8L e-tron. Therefore it will feature a plug-in hybrid style drivetrain. Thereby pairing a 340-hp 3.0-liter TFSI engine with electric motor assist. Finally and all in order to boast 449 hp and 516 lb-ft combined power.
