This off-road vehicle boasts an electrified drivetrain that will be used next January at the 2022 Dakar Rally. A grueling event for even the most powerful petrol vehicles, this 2-week marathon of sorts has stages that are up to 800 kilometers (497 miles) in length, making it the ultimate challenge for an electric drivetrain.

Yes, there is a petrol engine in this machine, but not for what you think. Its DTM-sourced 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged TFSI gasoline engine is actually a part of the energy converter system to charge the battery while driving and serves as a range extender between 4,500 to 6,000 rpm. In addition to the motor-generator units (MGU) at each axle producing a combined 670 hp, there’s a thid one to recharge the battery while the RS Q e-tron under intense driving, all fed by a 50 kWh battery.
