According to the publication to Autocar, citing insider sources, 4-liter V8 can enter the brand history of the last 8-cylinder engine. The companies tend to invest in the development of hybrid and electric propulsion systems.
By 2025, Audi plans to convert to electric from 25% to 35% of all models.
Recall debut 4-liter diesel engine with two turbines and an electric blower was held at the sports crossover Audi SQ7 (total capacity — 435 hp and 900 Nm). As for the V8, then he is no longer on the second generation of the sports car Audi R8 (in plans — to be replaced with a 5- or 6-cylinder). This in itself is not surprising, because the largest Volvo engine allows himself only four cylinders.
