Audi plans an onslaught of SUVs after the Q8

Audi plans an onslaught of SUVs after the Q8

•    Audi plans to have a Q1, Q6 and even a Q9 in its portfolio
•    The E-Tron crossover will join later this year.
•    The new-gen Q3 is also due this year.

Audi has revealed the Q8 as their new flagship SUV. But that is just the beginning since the Ingolstadt-based carmaker plans to have a strong high-riding portfolio with introduction of newer Q models.
Firstly, the new generation Q3 is due this year. The new-gen Q3 will shift to MQB platform and that will help it loose weight and adopt a plethora of engine options. Talks of an all-electric Q3 is also going around but nothing is concrete yet.

The Q3 will get a sportier sibling in the form of the all-new Q4. It might be a scaled down Q8 with seating for four and will have the trending coupe-SUV styling. The Q4 will be Audi’s take against the BMW X2 and Range Rover Evoque when it arrives in a couple of years’ time.

The impending Q6 which was rumoured to be a pure electric SUV that has been renamed as the E-Tron. But the Q6 might return as a stylish and expensive alternative to the Q5 on which it will be based. No other details of the Q6 are available at the moment.

Although the Q8 comes as a flagship offering from the Four Ring, the carmaker can best it with an even bigger and grander Q9. Audi has trademarked the moniker already but there’s no green signal to the Q9 full-size luxury SUV yet. Maybe because the Q9 will enter the territory of VW Group’s big guns like the Bentley Bentayga and Lamborghini Urus.
Meanwhile, the current Q products like the Q2, Q5 and Q7 are garnering positive response both in terms of demands and sales.

It will be joined by the much-awaited E-Tron electric crossover which will debut this August. The E-Tron can exact 400 kilometres of electric range from its 95 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Audi claims it will have a drag coefficient of just 0.28 and will debut “virtual rear view mirrors”. When it arrives, the E-Tron will take on the likes of Jaguar I-Pace and Tesla Model X apart from the upcoming Mercedes EQC and BMW iNext.
