Audi Q8 Concept is a prototype that we had been waiting long, but the brand of the four hoops, as we had shown in the teasers. Today it has made its star appearance in the Salon de Detroit to put the first stone of what will be a revolutionary model. It is expected that in 2018 you reach the Q8 of production, which will be the first SUV-coupe of the brand and that will show unprecedented levels so far.
The Q8 Concept is impressive by its dimensions. Measured 5,02 meters long, 2,04 meters wide and 1,70 meters high, and has a wheelbase of 3 metres. The aesthetic will not go unnoticed thanks to a aggressive design and muscular. Highlights the grille Singleframe with vertical slats, the headlights with laser technology or the huge wheels of 23 inches that come with ceramic brake 20-inch.
If on the outside you can already see its status of prototype, in the passenger compartment will have to do the same. Has a configuration for 4 passengers and has focused on maximizing the quality and luxury on board. The technology will also be present, and there are no analog controls. There will be a Virtual Cockpit behind the steering wheel, a screen in the centre console for infotainment and one below it for the air conditioning. Even between the two rear seats there will be another screen with more controls.
in Addition to these novelties we will have a propulsion system plug-in hybrid. It is formed by a gasoline engine V6 turbo 3.0 liter and the other electric motor. In total 449 HP and 700 Nm of combined power that is transferred to the four wheels through the automatic tiptronic 8-speed. Thanks to him you can accelerate 0 to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds and a maximum speed limited to 250 km/h.
As a good plug-in hybrid, the Audi Q8 Concept has a low consumption of only 2.3 l/100km. Thanks to the lithium-ion battery and 17.9 kWh has a electric range of 60 miles. Can be recharged in two and a half hours in an outlet of 7.2 kW and makes the autonomy combined can exceed 1,000 kilometers. We will see in the coming year as it is the production model, but what is certain is that the Q8 promises and a lot of.
