Audi Officially Confirms Plans for Q4, Q8 Crossovers

Audi’s Crossover-Heavy Strategy Coming Into Focus

Apr 11, 2017
Just ahead of the 2017 New York Auto Show, Audi has confirmed its intentions to build the Q4 and Q8 crossovers to complement its existing lineup of SUVs. This development does not come as a great surprise, as the brand stated as far back as 2012 that it intended to make SUVs a much bigger part of the brand’s lineup. The “coupe-like” Q4 will slot in-between the compact Q3 and midsize Q5. Audi said it plans to build the Q4 at the company’s plant in Györ, Hungary.
The Q8, which will be the flagship of Audi’s SUV lineup, will likewise feature “coupe-like” styling and will be built at the VW Group’s plant in Bratislava, Slovakia, which currently builds the Audi Q7 SUV and partially built Porsche Cayenne models. The Q8 will start production first in 2018, and the Q4 will go into production in 2019.
The Györ plant currently builds the Audi TT sports coupe, the A3 sedan, and the A3 convertible. It is also Audi’s largest engine plant, building everything from I-4 gas and diesel engines, up to V-8, V-10, and V-12 engines. In 2016, the plant made more than 1.9 million gas and diesel engines for use throughout the Volkswagen Group’s lineup of vehicles.
