2020 Audi A8 Hybrid Plug-In Overview

The Audi A8 luxury sedan is the halo car in Audi’s lineup, and it was just redesigned for 2019. This year, a new plug-in hybrid (PHEV) variant joins the lineup, boosting performance and adding appeal for environmentally conscious potential buyers. The A8 competes against the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series, Cadillac CT6, and Jaguar XJ.

The Audi A8 Hybrid Plug-in gets the same subtle exterior treatment as the rest of the lineup. It looks elegant and high-tech without being desperate for attention. This version of the A8 does get unique lighting, and 19-inch wheels come standard.

The plug-in hybrid A8 is known as the 60 TFSI e, and it features a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine paired with an electric motor, as well as an 8-speed automatic transmission and a 14.1kWh lithium-ion battery. Total system output is an impressive 443 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. The EPA says the A8 PHEV has 17 miles of all-electric range and a total range of 420 miles, and it gets an estimated 54 miles-per-gallon equivalent. Standard driving modes include a hybrid mode, an electric mode, and a hold mode that helps conserve electric range for later. In electric mode, the A8 provides audio cues to alert nearby pedestrians.

Standard features in the A8 PHEV's swanky, super-size cabin include leather upholstery and a panoramic sunroof. Options include upgraded upholstery, multicolored ambient lighting, and heated, cooled, and massaging seats.

The A8 plug-in hybrid’s infotainment system features a dual-display touchscreen with a 10.1-inch upper screen and an 8.6-inch lower screen. Both provide haptic feedback, and the lower display features handwriting recognition. Other standard features include Bluetooth, HD Radio, satellite radio, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, navigation with voice control, the Audi virtual cockpit's 12.3-inch customizable display, and a 17-speaker Bang & Olufsen stereo.

Standard safety features include a reversing camera, lane-departure warning, the Audi Pre Sense Basic and Pre Sense Front collision-mitigation systems, and front and rear parking sensors. Options include a surround-view camera system, a head-up display (HUD), the Audi Pre Sense Rear collision-mitigation system with rear cross-traffic assist, and Audi Side Assist with vehicle-exit warning.

With this new plug-in hybrid variant, Audi’s flagship A8 sedan brings new levels of performance and efficiency while maintaining elegance.
