Electrifying² the desert

Audi is facing one of the greatest challenges in motorsport: The brand with the four rings is taking on the famous Dakar Rally. The alternative drive concept of the Audi RS Q e-tron¹ combines an electric drivetrain with a high-voltage battery and a highly-efficient energy converter². Team Audi Sport made a successful debut at the 2022 edition of the Dakar Rally and scored four stage victories and 14 stage podium results during the 14-day event in January. Cross-country rallying is the spearhead of the factory motorsport commitment.
