Audi has announced the Q8 is scheduled to go on sale sometime in 2019. Q1 due in 2016, electric Q6 out in 2018

Audi has announced the Q8 is scheduled to go on sale sometime in 2019.

Without going into any details, Audi says they will add a new member to the SUV family and will sit on top of the Q range. It will be one of the new models "to provide a solid foundation for the Audi Group's growth path." The company’s R&D boss Ulrich Hackenberg has already promised the Q8 will be more "coupe-like" than the Q7 and it will have a more emotional and sporty design influenced by the Prologue concept.

Another model to join the ever growing Audi lineup is going to be a baby crossover called Q1 which has already been teased and confirmed for next year's launch.

Audi also plans to introduce a "sporty SUV with electric drive in the upper mid segment" in 2018 and chances are the model in question is the Q6. It will allegedly be based on the second-gen Q7 and should have a 100 kWh battery pack providing enough juice for a range of at least 310 miles (500 km) before recharging.
