Audi releases first teaser photo of soon-to-be flagship Q8

Will Audi AG be revealing their new Q8 soon? It likely seems so as the German automaker recently released a teaser photo of a darkened vehicle with only green highlights on their official Facebook page. Curiously, Audi did not confirm whether it is the Q8. They shared the lone photo with the caption 'He carries the gene of the #Audi #Urquattro', which doesn't really reveal much.

Though the rest of the vehicle is hidden, the highlighted parts do hint to it being the Q8. First of all, we are certain that it is a SUV due ot the tall body and large wheels. When comparing the photo to previous spy shots of the Q8, they also seem to have the same design ques as well.

To be specific, both the teaser photo and spy shots of the Q8 share the same rakish D-pillar and slopping roof line. There is also the two horizontal lines which run atop the front and rear fenders, as empahsized by the green highlights. At the rear, both have the same slim taillights which wrap around to the fenders.

The Q8 is expected to ride Volkswagen's MLBEvo Platform, which is also used in other coupe-style SUVs such as the Lamborghini Urus and Bentley Bentayga. That said, it is still uncertain what engine and powertrain will be fitted on the Q8.

For now, we can only wait until the all-new Q8 debuts later this year. Who knows, it could even make a surprise debut at Auto China 2018.
