Default Q8 Updates

Hi,
I'm looking to sell my 2010 Q7 TDI on the buyback program next fall and buy the new Q8 when it becomes available. Given that this is Car Show season, any new information being provided at the shows, in terms of features and launch dates? Also, since production will be limited initially, what is the best strategy for working with the dealer? Will most put you on a list on a first come first serve basis or do you typically need some kind of connection? Obviously, any negotiation is out the window. Comments from anyone with insight would be appreciated.

Although this is a Q7 forum, I too have been closely following the Q8 announcements. Its definitely a beautiful vehicle!

With regards to the features, many publications have covered some of that. As for launch date, its supposed to go into production April/May 2018. So, my best guess would be late 2018/ early 2019 for deliveries in NA.

Put down a deposit to secure your spot when the Q8 is close to launch. And as you rightly guessed, definitely no scope for negotiation in the first few months.

The only other source I found that you didn't list was this one: New 2018 Audi Q8 SUV: First spy shots of new Audi flagship SUV | Auto Express

I had not seen that update before (8 Jan). Thanks! They say it is the same or larger than the Q7. Hard to tell from the pictures.

It has no US release date, will not be at any of the immediate Auto Shows. Q8 is on the horizon, so is the Q2

I cant imagine its bigger based on these pics. I think its sportier, fancier (i.e., A8 interior), and hence more expensive//

There's no way the Q8 is bigger than the Q7, as it only seats 5 passengers.

Article says it will be the largest vehicle in the Q offerings. Hard to imagine...
