2020 Audi SQ8 has been launched with a powerful performance 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbocharged engine, with a price tag of N37 million.

After a long wait, the 2020 Audi SQ8 has finally debuted.

Launched as a faster and powerful version, the Audi SQ8 is powered by a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbocharged diesel engine. It’s sharing the same engine with the SQ7 model. The new model produces 429 hp while the torque is 664-lb-ft(900 Nm) with a low 1000 RPM. With these, the Audi SQ8 is able to run 62 mph(100 km/h) in 4.8 seconds while surpassing it with a top speed that's electronically limited to 155 mph (250 km/h).

Naijauto gathered that the model's powertrain also integrates a 48-volt lithium-ion battery pack that energizes an electric compressor to expel all turbo lag. The SQ8 can be driven by customers on pure electric power to hit 14 mph (22km/h). It's definitely all about the engine which sets this model apart from other models.
