Audi has announced that they will be adding a new compact SUV to their ‘Q’ range of 4 x 4 vehicles in 2016, the Audi Q1, which you can see in an rendering below.
The Audi Q1 will join the Q3, Q5 and Q7, and will be the smallest of Audi’s 4 x 4 range, it is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2016.
“The Audi Q1 is part of our broad-based SUV strategy. It is designed on the basis of the modular transverse engine concept and will round off our Q series at the bottom end,” stated Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG. As an attractive entry into the Q family, the new model will make a strong contribution to the company’s ongoing growth and will strengthen its international competitiveness. Audi is continuing its model offensive with the Q1; by 2020, the automaker will expand its product range from the current 49 to more than 60 models. By then, Audi will reach total unit sales of more than two million automobiles each year.
