Late last month, Audi confirmed that it will launch a new range-topping Audi Q8 SUV in the coming years. While it remains to be seen just when the Q8 will hit the market, we know that the Q8 will make use of the German firm’s new design language previewed by the Audi Prologue Concept unveiled at the L.A. Auto Show.
One key design aspect about the Audi Q8 which we already know is that it will be more of a coupe than the existing Q7. With this in mind, X-Tomi Design has decided to render how the Q8 could look based around the recently facelifted Audi Q7.
Importantly, the facelifted Q7 doesn’t draw on the Prologue for its design meaning when the Q8 does indeed launch, its styling is likely to be bolder than the car pictured.
The Audi Q8 will be followed by other SUVs including the Q1, Q2, Q4 and Q6. Audi is so invested in this plan that it predicted by 2020, SUVs will account for 40 per cent of its annual sales bringing total yearly sales to around 800,000.
The Q8 is being specifically developed to target places like China, the United States and the Middle East and in essence, will be very similar to the Audi A8 under the skin except for the larger body and all that goes along with that (larger wheels, new suspension etc). For top-of-the-range Audi Q8 models, adjustable air suspension is likely to be used.
