The Audi Q8 TFSI e quattro - Intelligent and efficient - the hybrid management system and the predictive operating strategy
The hybrid management system of the Audi Q8 TFSI e quattro automatically selects the optimum operating strategy for each journey. The SUV coupé starts in all-electric "EV" mode. At low speeds, a loudspeaker in the right front wheel arch emits the legally prescribed warning sound (AVAS, Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System). The gasoline engine only becomes active when the driver depresses the right pedal - known as the active accelerator pedal - beyond a certain resistance. If he wants to drive electrically as much as possible, he can select the "EV" mode in the central MMI display. The "Hybrid" mode, the main operating strategy of the Audi Q8 TFSI e quattro, comprises three operating modes: "Auto," "Hold" and "Charge." In "Auto" mode, the hybrid system automatically selects the optimum drive mode - pure electric at low speeds, the TFSI engine at higher speeds and often both together. The close-range information from the MMI is taken into account even when the navigation is deactivated.
