The new Audi Q8 was spotted testing in India back in January this year. Ahead of its India debut sometime later this year, the German luxury car manufacturer revealed its plans to showcase the production model at the upcoming Shanghai Motor Show. Based on the Volkswagen Group’s MLB platform, the new Q8 will offer additional features over the Q7 sibling.

Mechanically, the upcoming Audi Q8 is expected to be powered by a 3.0 TFSI six-cylinder engine with a mild hybrid setup and electric powered compressor. Mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, it generates an impressive 469bhp of power and 700Nm of torque. Reports indicate that the SUV will have an electric-only range of about 60kms.

The new Audi Q8 will feature all-LED headlamps and LED DRLs along with the OLED tail lamps. As seen in the test mule, it is expected to get a set of black alloy wheels and a roof mounted spoiler. Interestingly, the Q8 also gets the largest octagonal grille in comparison to its other products from the company’s lineup. The five-seat SUV is expected to be offered with premium leather upholstery and a large infotainment system with Bluetooth, navigation and CarPlay support.

Additional details about the Audi Q8 will be known post its official unveiling at the Shanghai Motor Show.
