8th August 2017
Earmarked for 2018, the all-new Audi Q8 SUV is set to raise the bar to unprecedented heights in its segment, with a concept model unveiling some key clues about the production model’s profile.
A flagship SUV for Audi, the Q8 is expected to rival the likes of Range Rover, offering something fresh to the highly desirable SUV market. Revealing an extremely confident roofline, the new Q8 is taller than the Q7, but with a sleeker, coupe-inspired silhouette. Over five metres long with a three-metre wheelbase, the Q8 has a commanding presence, made all the more athletic by dipping 40mm lower than the Q7.
Spacious to the hilt, the Q8 concept only features four seats, but the production model is expected to include five. In addition, a 630-litre boot will make cargo a cinch.
Introduced as a plug-in hybrid e-tron model, the Q8 is tipped to include a 3.0-litre TFSI engine and an electric motor, running from a powerful 17.9kWh lithium-ion battery. Producing a gutsy 438bhp and 700Nm of torque, the Q8 will dash from 0-62mph in a spine-tingling 5.4 seconds, with a top speed of 155mph. Not only that, but CO2 emissions still manage to sit at a respectable 53g/km.
Immediately recognisable, a strip of LED lights stretch across the Q8’s rear, offering a futuristic frontage which is given substance by the model’s enviable technology. This particular aesthetic is said to become a signature of the e-tron range, soon to become more and more prominent.
In the cabin, a 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit display is packed with more features than ever before, with a higher resolution for gorgeous visuals. In addition, a new ‘control and display concept’ will reduce the majority of buttons with digital touchscreens on the dashboard and centre console. With the Audi Q8, destiny is already on your driveway.
