2017 Detroit Auto Show Preview : 2018 Audi Q8 concept personal luxury crossover


Audi revealed the Q8 Concept here at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, and it's just as we expected: a Q7 with frameless windows, an oversized grille, and a rakish "coupe-like" roofline. This concept is an overdone illustration of cars that they are able to almost certainly enter production to do battle with BMW's vanity luxury utility, the X6, and Mercedes-Benz's GLE Coupe.

The coupe moniker doesn't really apply, despite the German automakers' good attempts to redefine the word, but otherwise the Q8 Concept delivers. It's two inches shorter overall than a contemporary Q7, on a same wheelbase, so the basic proportions of the thing should obligate the move to production.



The driveline is evenly plausible: a plug-in hybrid setup pairing a 3.0 -liter TFSI V6 with a 17.9 -kWh lithium-ion battery. The concept's V6 hypothetically manufactures 333 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque, and a single electric engine included in the eight-speed automatic transmission adds 100 kW( 134 hp) and 234 lb-ft of torque to the concoction. Those numerals surely make sense, considering the gas Q7 manufactures 333 hp( albeit with a supercharger) and the existing Q7 e-tron, which isn't sold now, pairs a 17.3 -kWh battery with a diesel V6. 

Since this is a concept, creation intent or no, the stray numerals are also a little theoretical, but here's what Audi affirms: a 60 -mile EV range, and a total stray of around 621 miles. Not squalid if you're taking a long road expedition. The adaptive aura exclusion is advisable to make it a cozy one.

Inside, this is a four-place vehicle; no third row, and no centre rear posterior, as is the trend with these acts. The cabin is very clean and modern- generally Audi, although exaggerated a little bit. Expect it to be toned down some for creation, but this concept interior is a view into the future.

We'll have to wait until next year to see something a little bit closer to production-ready, but it's coming.
