Audi expands the range SUV with Q8

Vehicles like the BMW X6, Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, the Volvo XC 90 or the Range Rover Vogue will have a new competitor in brief, we refer to the new Audi Q8 to be the largest of the SUV's of the German mark to date.

Audi Q8 conceptWhile the new Q8 looks like a SUV but the rear is in silhouette as the BMW X6 coupe and Mercedes-Benz GLE, other large SUV's can also be affected by the market entry of new Q8.

2018 It is when the first units will be marketed and come loaded with a new concept of technology. Doors open by pressing the sensors on the B and C pillars of the vehicle. On the other hand the dashboard will have very few physical buttons and many other display functions. It seems the future is focused on these solutions.

Audi Q8 naranja-Drive 4 wheels and a transmission system 8 speeds, what is striking are its almost 450 CV's power I achieved by combining a gasoline engine turbo-powered 3 liters (333 CV’s) and an electric motor 136 CV's battery powered by a lithium-ion.

Como curiosidad, Q8 has the 3 driving modes. The first electrically without help from internal combustion engine (so EV), the second is the mode “Hybrid” where both motors are combined, and the third is the “Battery Hold” Audi Q8 traserawhere the combined system tries to maintain a predetermined power level in the battery to use this energy later.

The truth that looks good and surely will become a tough competitor for other large SUV's. Audi meanwhile continues its strategy to fill the market possibilities in all segments, especially SUVs.

The Q8 is certainly sporty and aggressive:
