Audi Confirms Q8, All-Electric Crossover


Recommended Posts

A slew of new models and innovations will arrive in Audi's lineup over the next few years, Audi technical development chief Ulrich Hackenberg announced today during a speech in Ingolstadt, Germany. The automaker confirmed it will introduce two large crossovers -- including the Q8 and an all-electric model -- and has also outlined a very near-term plan for autonomous driving. 

 

Audi says that a new Q8 model will be offered as a sporty Q variant, slotting above the all-new Q7. In 2018, Audi will bring out an all-electric crossover that promises over 310 miles of range. It will be built on the automaker's second-generation MLB platform that can accommodate a variety of different drivetrains. We can expect much more information on this model by the end of this year.

Nice Looking CUV hybrid type between the low riding car and a full SUV. This should sell.

 

It looks very good indeed. About the sales, it should sells good considering that Audi looks like did a good job by creating an all-electric crossover. But what about competitors?

I expect Cadillac to have an EV version of the SRX or what will be called I think the XT5-EV.

These Audis are looking more and more like Passats, the headlights are boring and the grill looks like a big mouth bass.  This is a lifted A7, and reminds me of the soon to be cancelled Toyota Venza which isn't really an SUV as much as it is a tall car.
