Audi Q8 Concept teased ahead of the Detroit debut

Audi has revealed the final teaser of its ‘near-production study’ – the Q8 Concept in a teaser video. It highlights few crucial aspects of the highly anticipated SUV-coupe concept which will make it to production soon as Audi’s take in the SUV-coupe segment.

The teaser video starts with an ‘e-tron’ moniker on the front silver finished splitters, evincing that the concept vehicle at the Detroit will actually have an electric or a hybrid powertrain. Moving towards the side, the Quattro stickers discloses that the Q8 Concept will be sending power to all four wheels in characteristic Audi fashion. The headlights and tail lights showcased a more evolved and futuristic design. Whether these adaptive LED lights make it to the production vehicle is unsure. And lastly, the video showcases a new touch sensitive B-pillar mounted Audi logo, which will open the doors instead of the conventional door handles at a single push of a thumb.

The teaser also provides a glimpse of the futuristic, all-digital virtual instrument cluster. This virtual instrumentation might actually make it sooner in the upcoming flagship A8 which is slated for launch this year.

The Q8 Concept was also spotted testing recently in the production guise and will be arriving sometime next year. It will take on the fight with BMW X6 and Mercedes GLE Coupe. The concept, however, is imminent to be unveiled with further details at the 2017 Detroit Motor Show
