Official testing rates the e-tron as being capable of 204mi (328km) per charge, which is significantly behind its key rivals – namely the Jaguar I-Pace (234mi, 376.6km) and Tesla Model X Long Range (295mi, 474.7km).

2020 Audi Q8 'TFSI e' spied

Spy photographers have snapped a development prototype believed to be the upcoming plug-in hybrid version of the Audi Q8 in Europe this week. We already know what the Q8 looks like, so there's no reason to apply heavy camouflage to the swoopy crossover's body. Photographers pointed out the additional flap for the charge port on the left rear quarter panel, along with yellow stickers indicating this is a hybrid test vehicle.
