Audi will unveil a crossover concept at the Detroit motor show, Audi CEO Rupert Stadler has confirmed.
Talking to Bloomberg, he referred to the car as the 'Vail' concept, which is rumoured to be a design study based on the recently launched Q3 (pictured).
Audi is eager to build its US sales as part of its quest to become the world's biggest selling premium car maker. It currently sells around half the number of cars as BMW and Mercedes in America. As well as showing the Vail concept, Audi has already confirmed the new Audi A3, due to be launched later this year, will be available as a saloon.
"The next pillar of the market that we have to conquer is the United States," Stadler told Bloomberg News. "We see opportunities in the SUV and sedan segments." He also confirmed plans to build more cars in the US.
Stadler also confirmed that a new Audi A2, already shown as a concept last year, will eventually make production.
