The three models – the 50, 55, and S, which are available in overseas markets  have received an increase in their respective power outputs.

A couple of days ago, the Audi Q8 e-tron made its global debut. The automaker has now announced that the electric SUV will soon arrive on Indian shores as well. The facelifted e-tron, which now has the Q8 prefix in its moniker, should be available in standard SUV and Sportback (SUV Coupe) body styles.

In addition to changing the name, Audi has modified the appearance of the electric SUV by adding a DRL strip, which connects the two headlamps. The EV also gets a new grille with faux air dams, which resemble those of the ICE-powered Q8. The rear and side profiles appear to be fairly similar, meaning the styling isn't entirely new.

Given its upgraded powertrains, significant alterations have been done underneath its body. The Q8 e-tron is available in dual- and triple-motor iterations. The e-tron 55 variant features a 106kWh battery, which allows it to travel up to 600 kilometres on a single charge, while the base 50 variant's 89kWh battery pack gives it a range of 509 kilometres. The Q8 55 e-tron SUV has a peak torque of 664Nm and generates 402bhp. The Sportback variant, which features the biggest battery pack and a three-motor setup, produces 496bhp and a maximum torque of 973Nm in the SQ8 e-tron derivative. 

The updated Audi Q8 e-tron is expected to arrive in India as a CBU and will have a higher price tag than the current model, which starts at ₹1.02 crores (ex-showroom).
