The upcoming Audi Q8 has been creating a buzz in the market for quite some time now. New reports suggest that the SUV might make 680 hp from a hybrid powertrain. If these reports are to be believed, the Q8 will share its twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine and electric motor with the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid.
Talking about the performance, in the Porsche, the twin-scroll turbo V8 makes 550 hp of maximum power & 770 Nm of peak torque. However, it is expected that the electric motor in the Audi will make 136 hp and 400 Nm of torque, bringing the total power to a massive 686 hp. Power is expected to be sent to all the four wheels through an 8-speed twin-clutch automatic transmission. Hence, the Audi RS Q8 SUV is likely to make about 69 hp more power and 290 Nm more torque than the Audi R8 V10 Plus.
