Apparently, Audi is quite excited by the Q8 and has already slated a production volume of 25,000 units on the first go.
Not long ago, we had covered a story on Audi planning on creating an ‘even numbered’ range of SUVs for the future and this German auto giant has already trademarked this series of new names. The name Q8 was also registered which as per logic, is expected to sit above the much favored and applauded Audi Q7. More speculated details on the future Audi Q8 SUV have emerged on the interweb which state that this neoteric SUV will find base on the new MLB platform. Also, all the technologies that are supposed to make the future model of Q7 lighter than the present one are expected to benefit the Audi Q8 which will ultimately make the future Q8 comprise of 60 percent of steel and 40 percent of aluminum like materials which are light in weight.
