According to reports, the Q8 will find its way to showrooms in July. At its launch, the only engine to be available is Audi’s 3L diesel which cranks out 282bhp and can reach 0-62mph in just 6.3 seconds.
Next year, a 335bhp V6 petrol and a less powerful diesel will be part of the engine line-up. Audi is also said to create SQ8 and RSQ8 varpiants.
All Audi Q8 models come with the Quattro four-wheel drive system, which has a rear-wheel bias to enhance driving dynamics.
