Prime spaventose conferme da Los Angeles: Il Q8 si farà.

Cita
Audi will put a new Audi Q8 SUV into production, technical chief Ulrich Hackenberg has confirmed to Autocar at the Los Angeles motor show.The range-topping crossover SUV to challenge the likes of the BMW X6,Range Rover Sport and upcoming Mercedes-Benz MLC will be based on the next-generation Q7, which is set to be unveiled in January at the Detroit motor show.

"The Q8 will come," said Hackenberg. "It will be something new, following designs established on the Prologue concept [revealed at the LA show]. It will be positioned as something more emotional and more sporty than the Q7. The Q7 will be a car for seven people, the Q8 will be more coupe like."

The Q7 will be one of the last Audis with the current design language, Hackenberg saying that he and new chief designer Marc Lichte arrived at the firm too late from Volkswagen to influence the look. To that end, the Q8 will have some visual differentation to the Q7 both inside and out.

The Q8 has been granted official production approval and is progressing through a development programme that aims to have it on sale within the next three years.

Previously hinted at at the Beijing motor show by company boss Rupert Stadler, the upmarket crossover forms a crucial part of Audi’s growth strategy that will see it extend its line-up by no fewer than 11 new models by 2020. Five of those models have been identified as additional SUVs in the form of the Q1, Q2, Q4, Q6 and Q8.

This will push Audi’s range to a 60-strong model line-up, with the company predicting that 40 per cent of its annual sales - around 800,000 units - will come from SUVs. Stadler admitted that more investment would be diverted to SUVs as a result.

“We see a great deal of potential, particularly in the SUV segment and in the especially prestigious full-size category,” said Stadler earlier this year.

The Q8 has been conceived to extend Audi’s reach at the top of its line-up and to provide the company with added sales in potentially crucial markets such as China, the Middle East and the United States.

In terms of performance and technology, the Q8 is described as being on a par with Audi’s A8 flagship saloon, albeit with the added ability to head off road thanks to its raised ride height and, on top-end models, adjustable air suspension.

The Q8 is set to crown Audi’s Q line-up, while a four-door coupé version of the A8, called A9, is still on the cards to top Audi’s range of A-badged cars. This has been previewed with the Prologue A9 concept in LA

Ingolstadt’s big new SUV, which will have an overall length of more than five metres, has a projected price range of between £50,000 for an entry-level turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol model and £90,000 for a twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 RS Q8 flagship.

A range of V6 and V8 petrol and diesel engines will be offered, alongside plug-in hybrids and possibly an all-electric version to rival the upcomingTesla Model X SUV.

The Q8 is set to receive its own, unique five-door body styled under the stewardship of new Audi design boss Marc Lichte. Among the various elements expected to set it apart from the more practical second-generation Q7 is a racier front end with a more sporting grille, more obvious tapering around each corner, shallower side glass, a generously sloping roofline and a more heavily angled rear window.

In the same way that BMW has spun the X6 off the X5, the Q8 is set to share its mechanical package with the forthcoming new Q7.

The basis for the Q8 is the second-generation MLB (modular longitudinal architecture) platform. The structure forms part of a family of platforms, the development of which is being led by Audi. It is set to underpin a wide range of upmarket SUVs, including the new Q7, the third-generation Porsche Cayenne, a secret new Cayenne coupé, the third-gen Volkswagen Touareg, the recently confirmed Bentley SUV and the spectacular Lamborghini Urus.

The Q8 and Bentley will be the plushest and most premium of the SUVs, but Stadler believes the pair won’t clash, as “Bentley can’t fill the gap” of less than £100,000 into which the range-topping Q8 will be pitched.

Insiders say the MLB structure has far greater flexibility than that used today, with added scope for variability within the wheelbase and track widths in a move that, it is suggested, will lead to a wider differentiation between the models planned by the VW Group’s various brands.

The key development, however, is the adoption of aluminium, thinner-gauge high-strength steel and carbonfibre-reinforced plastic, which together promise to bring a significant reduction in weight of up to 300kg in the Q7 and a kerb weight below 2000kg for the base Q8.

Expected to be badged Q8, the new vehicle is based on the same basic MLB platform as the new Q7, but it is built around a battery pack which could be as large as 100kWh - bigger than the 90kWh battery in the new R8 e-tron.

The R8 e-tron has a predicted range of 280 miles, so the bluffer and less aerodynamic Q8 is expected to have a range of around 185 miles on a full charge. It is not expected to arrive much before the end of 2017.

Audi chairman Rupert Stadler told Autocar that the new regulations in eight US states requiring 15% of new cars to be electric by 2025 have ensured that premium car makers will have to "build a range of all-electric vehicles".

As Tesla established, it is customers at the top of the market who are most in tune with the idea of limited-range electric vehicles. Premium priced electric vehicles also make more sense for car makers, which need to accommodate costly battery packs in the factory cost of the car.

Ulrich Hackenberg, Audi’s research and development boss, told the press conference that the Q8 was currently under development and that the final styling would take much from the recent Prologue concept car. The new A6, A7 and A8 models will also share design traits with the Prologue.

He added that MLB platform had been designed from the outset to be flexible enough to accommodate a battery pack as well as plug-in hybrid and gas tanks for natural gas power.

Hackenberg also revealed that the next generation Audi A4, which is based on the smallest version of the MLB platform and due to be seen later this year, will also come as a gas-powered version, dubbed the g-tron.

Hackenberg first confirmed to Autocar at the Los Angeles motor show that the Q8 was in the works.

The range-topping crossover SUV will challenge the likes of the BMW X6, Range Rover Sport and upcoming Mercedes-Benz MLC. It is also aimed directly at the upcoming Tesla Model X SUV, which is due to be launched later this year. Like the Tesla, the Q8 e-tron will have electric motors driving the front and rear wheels.

"The Q8 will come," said Hackenberg. "It will be something new, following designs established on the Prologue concept [revealed at the LA show]. It will be positioned as something more emotional and more sporty than the Q7. The Q7 will be a car for seven people, the Q8 will be more coupé-like."

The Q7 will be one of the last Audis with the current design language. Hackenberg said he and new chief designer Marc Lichte arrived at the firm too late from Volkswagen to influence the look. To that end, the Q8 will have some visual differentation to the Q7 both inside and out.

Unlike the traditional, bluff off-roader styling employed by the Q7, the Q8 will be much sleeker.

The five-door hatchback Q8 will have a higher waistline, lower roofline and shallower side windows than its Q7 sister model and will be available in both five and seven-seat configurations.

Audi of America CEO Scott Keogh has announced that the RS3 high-performance compact car and the Q8 SUV will be sold in the United States.

The executive also confirmed that the US market will also get the new Q8 SUV. While he didn’t offer a time frame, the Q8 could arrive stateside in 2017 after its launch in Europe. The Q8 will be a sportier, more premium variant of the Q7.

“The Q8 looks to be a home run product for the U.S., if you look at its size and where it’s going to be positioned. That is absolutely a car that we will see in the United States,” Keogh added.

As for the upcoming Audi Q1 small crossover, the executive said that the US market is unlikely to get it because it might not have the combination of price and value for American consumers.

      Arriva l'Audi A8 L 60 TFSIe Quattro e dietro questa sigla chilometrica si nasconde una A8 passo lungo che è spinta da un motore termico benzina 3.0 V6 da 340 CV e 500 Nm, accoppiato ad un motore elettrico sincrono inserito nella trasmissione di ZF ad 8 rapporti, da 136 CV e 350 Nm che insieme erogano 450 CV e 700 Nm di coppia!
      La batteria, agli ioni di litio da 14.1 kWh da 385 V sistemata nel vano sottostante il baule, garantisce alla A8L un'autonomia di 46 km in ciclo WLTP. La vettura è Plug-in, e con una connessione a 400 V e 16A , bastano 2 ore e mezzo per ricaricare la batteria (con una potenza massima di 7.4 kW). Con la rete domestica da 220/240 V e 10A sono necessarie 6,5 ore. 
      Lo scatto da fermo a 100 km/h è coperto in 4.9 secondi e la velocità massima è autolimitata a 250 km/h. 
      Può muoversi in modalità completamente elettrica sino a 135 km/h. In modalità "Coasting" può recuperare 25 kW di potenza
      Debutterà nell'ultimo quadrimestre del 2019 in Germania ad un prezzo di partenza di 109'000 Euro.

      In Europa l'Audi SQ8 è spinta da un possente V8 4.0 litri TwinTurbo...DIESEL.
      Grazie al sistema mild-hybrid da 48 V è in grado di erogare 435 CV e 900 Nm di coppia motrice disponibile tra i 1.250 e i 3.250 giri. Lo 0-100 km/h viene polverizzato in 4.8 secondi e la velocità limitata di 250 km/h è raggiunta molto velocemente.
       
      Esteticamente, la nuova SQ8 si differenzia da qualsiasi altra versione della gamma Q8 grazie a vari elementi specifici. Come al solito nei modelli S, il sistema di scarico è una delle caratteristiche più identificative: quattro terminali di scarico fanno capolino dal ridisegnato paraurti posteriore, mentre nuovi cerchi in lega - dal design esclusivo per la SQ8 - saranno disponibili in misure fino a 22 ".  Ovviamente, non mancheranno retrotreno sterzante, barra stabilizzatrice antirollio attiva, differenziale sportivo e freni carboceramici.
      All'interno saremo avvolti da un'atmosfera in cui lusso e qualità sono miscelati con un tocco di sportività. I rivestimenti in pelle ed in alcantara accanto ai sedili con il logo S attirano molta attenzione. Né dovremmo perdere di vista i pedali in acciaio inox ed i nuovi battitacco con logo. Un'altra chiave di questo modello è l'equipaggiamento standard completo, sia in termini di connettività che di sicurezza / comfort.
       
      In USA - anche se non c'è stata ancora conferma - dovrebbe debuttare con il 2.9 V6 TwinTurbo da circa 470 CV
