Audi appears to consider it can produce a new niche in the complete-sized car segment by introducing a car with SUV proportions inside, and nearly coupe-like proportions outside. We 1st heard of the R8 name way back in 2012 when Audi filed a trademark for it, along with other names like R6, S2, S9, and RS1, amongst other people.

Much more recently, nonetheless, around July of 2016, we laid eyes on a weird coupe-ish SUV prototype that just had to be the Audi Q8. Nicely, our suspicions of that prototype have pretty significantly been confirmed now that Audi has released the teaser photos of the Audi R8 e-Tron Notion that you see here.
Set to debut at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Audi has mentioned quite tiny about the notion, but it is supposedly near-production ready. If that genuinely is the case, it is quite probably that we’ll see the prototype testing at least once a lot more over the next year, and the production model will likely debut at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show in preparation for its official release for the 2019 model year. The notion we see right here is a preview of a model that will take on the likes of the BMW X6 and the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe.
We still have some time prior to we get to see the actual production model, but we’ll be seeing the Concept in the metal in just a couple of weeks. So, in the meantime, let’s take a appear at these teaser images and talk a tiny a lot more about it.
