East Kilbride News - - MOTORS -

Audi is to in­crease its SUV range with two new Q mod­els and has an­nounced that the new Q8 will be built in Bratislava (Slo­vakia) in 2018 with the first Audi Q4 be­ing con­structed in Győr (Hun­gary) from 2019.

“We will in­te­grate two com­pletely new Q-mod­els into the ex­ist­ing pro­duc­tion net­work and will thus in­crease our com­pet­i­tive­ness in an ex­tremely im­por­tant seg­ment,”stated Audi’s Board of Man­age­ment Mem­ber for Pro­duc­tion and Lo­gis­tics, Prof. Dr. Hubert Waltl.

With the Q8, the brand will open up a new seg­ment for its top-end mod­els. The pre­mium SUV in a coupe style com­bines space with emo­tive de­sign and of­fers the lat­est tech­nolo­gies in as­sis­tance and in­fo­tain­ment sys­tems. The Q7 has been pro­duced at the Slo­vakian plant since 2005. Mean­while, the sec­ond gen­er­a­tion of the large SUV is in pro­duc­tion there, as an S ver­sion and as the Q7 e-tron plug-in hy­brid.

The Audi Q4 will be po­si­tioned be­tween the Audi Q3 and Q5. And as of 2018, Audi Hun­garia will also be re­spon­si­ble for pro­duc­tion of the Audi Q3.
