In addition, the SQ8's powerplant is a hybrid system. The internal combustion engine is assisted by an 8 kW electric motor generator. The engine is paired with an eight-speed "automatic" ZF, and the traction to the wheels is distributed using the proprietary quattro all-wheel drive system in a 60:40 ratio. The SQ8 accelerates to 100 km / h in 4.8 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 250 km / h.
