A whole suite of new Audi Q models are planned by the company, including a Q1 and crossovers that mix MPV and SUV traits.
Speaking at the Detroit motor show, Audi technical chief Ulrich Hackenberg said the Q range had “lots of potential”.
“We can go up after that [with a Q8 or Q9] and can also go inbetween our current Q cars with a model between the Q3 and Q5 or one between the Q5 and Q7,” said Hackenberg. “These are projects we are discussing and working on.
“You can go sportier with Q cars but you can also be more MPV like with more seats. Q can be a way of thinking, presenting a lifestyle. We need cars with more seats; MPVs are not fashionable but MPVs are, so why not combine both? The Q6 is a theory for this.”
