Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Audi SQ8 e-tron. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Standard 11.0 kW On-Board Charger
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 54h15m 5 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 33h45m 8 mph

3-phase 32A (22 kW) 400V / 3x32A 22 kW † 5h45m 48 mph

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Audi SQ8 e-tron.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)
Charging Point Max. Power Avg. Power Time Rate
CCS (50 kW DC) 50 kW 50 kW 94 min 120 mph
CCS (100 kW DC) 100 kW 95 kW † 49 min 230 mph
CCS (150 kW DC) 150 kW 130 kW † 36 min 320 mph

CCS (350 kW DC) 170 kW † 150 kW † 31 min 370 mph
This vehicle does not support Autocharge

† = Limited by charging capabilities of vehicle

Autocharge: allows for a vehicle to initiate charging automatically on supported CCS charge points.

Actual charging rates may differ from data shown due to factors like outside temperature, state of the battery and driving style.

All about the Audi SQ8 e-tron

Pricing

The Audi SQ8 e-tron has a Recommend Retail Price (RRP) of £97,580 and an On The Road Price (OTR) of £98,295. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Audi SQ8 e-tron is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Audi SQ8 e-tron is 370 kW (496 hp). The maximum torque is 718 lb-ft. The Audi SQ8 e-tron is all wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in an estimated 4.5 seconds. The top speed is 130 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Audi SQ8 e-tron has a total capacity of 114 kWh. The usable capacity is 106 kWh. An estimated range of about 275 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 200 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 390 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 11 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 11 hours 30 minutes. However, a 3-phase grid connection is needed to achieve this. The majority of homes and charge points currently do not have this connection. In most cases the maximum charging power will be 7.4 kW, allowing for a charge time of 17 hours and a charge rate of 16 mph. An optional on-board charger with a maximum power of 22.0 kW is available. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 5 hours 45 minutes. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 54 hours 15 minutes.

Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 170 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 150 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 35 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 190 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Audi SQ8 e-tron is about 385 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 105 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 530 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 272 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Audi SQ8 e-tron emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
