Audi Confirms New A4, Q1, Q5 And Q8

More news is coming out from Audi’s press conference today, with the Ingolstadt brand outlining their upcoming product presentations, including the next A4 series, and three SUVs.

First up will be the successor to the A4 range based on the second generation of the modular longitudinal platform (MLB 2) coming in the second half of this year, with a world debut likely planned for the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

In 2016, Audi will first present the second-generation of its BMW X3-fighter, the Q5, which will be produced at the firm’s new production plant in Mexico, while before the end of the year, it will add yet another SUV to its lineup, the sub-compact Q1 positioned as a premium alternative to the Nissan Juke, sitting right under the existing Q3.

“The Audi Q1 will be the new entry-level model among our SUVs and will round out the portfolio at the bottom end as of 2016,” said Audi CEO Rupert Stadler.

Audi has one more crossover model up its sleeve, according to Stadler. “In the large luxury segment, we will make an impact with a sporty Q derivative: with the Audi Q8,” he said, without giving out any further details.

Previously, Audi had confirmed the new A8 with autonomous technology for 2017 and an as of yet, unnamed Tesla-rivaling, all-electric sports crossover for 2018.

The brand with the four-rings said that in the next five years, it will expand its product portfolio from the present 52 to over than 60 models.
