For its part, Audi had announced its arrival with the help of a concept, the Q8 Concept, which was presented last January at the show in Detroit 2017. And it would seem that it is now the standard version is ready , As evidenced by this picture of the vehicle, hardly camouflaged, traveling on a German road.
Scheduled for next year, perhaps with a presentation at the Los Angeles show next November, the Q8 will be animated by the V6 and V8 liter KoVoMo. A hybrid engine is also on the program. The Audi Q8 Sport Concept, unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, was equipped with the 3.0 TFSI V6 coupled with a 20 kW electric motor for a combined power of 476 hp and a torque of 700 Nm.
The final Q8 apparently (awaiting confirmation that this is the standard bodywork) was surprised on open road. The three-quarters rear shows a solid shield incorporating two exhaust outlets, but it is for the moment difficult to say whether the characteristic luminous band is preserved for the series.
The presentation of the Q8 is expected to take place in the coming months, at the Los Angeles show and even at the Detroit show in January.
