    After Fiat gave up the names Q2 and Q4, the road is clear.
    - will be based on next gen Q3
    - take design cues from the TT

    Here a first render:

        That bottom one reminds me of the Audi Steppenwolf. It's about time Audi capitalise om the coolness of the TT by introducing another variant.

        Autobild reports it will be an e-tron version with minimum 500km range.

          Audi submits Q4 trademark for possible hybrid coupe suv

          Could finally be a production version of the TT Offroad concept
          Audi has reportedly submitted an application to trademark the Q4 name, sparking rumors it is preparing for a new, mid-size coupe SUV similar to the TT Offroad concept first seen in 2014.

          Audi secured the rights to the Q4 and Q2 names last year after a long dispute with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Both were used on certain Alfa Romeo models, Q2 on limited-slip differential-equipped front-wheel-drive cars, and Q4 on four-wheel-drive cars.

          Once it owned the badges, Audi wasted little time in naming its smallest SUV Q2, the model launching just a couple of months ago.

          This is now the second time Audi was applied for a trademark on the Q4 name, having first made an attempt in September last year. It’s likely any eventual Q4 production car would be a little brother to the upcoming Q6 e-tron, a full-size, full-electric coupe SUV with a range of 310 miles (500 kilometers), that’s due to go on sale in 2018.

          It’s thought the Q4 would mimic the TT Offroad concept that was shown at the Beijing Motor Show in 2014. That featured a hybrid powertrain, with an electric motor on the rear axle - it’s likely the Q4 would feature some level of electrification.

          Particularly as technology giant Samsung has announced it intends to build a new factory to produce batteries for hybrid and electric cars in God, Hungary, not far from the Audi TT plant in Gyor. The company has said it will invest $358 million in the facility, which will open in 2018 and have capacity to produce battery packs for around 50,000 EVs every year. Both Samsung and LG will supply batteries for the Q6.

          Should the Q4 reach production, it will wade into battle against the BMW X4 and Mercedes GLC Coupe. The next-generation X4 is expected to be available as a hybrid, while the GLC already has that option.

            - Plug in Hybrid (small Q8)
            - Still on schedule for 2019
            - Audi decided for the more extravagant and differentiating rear design despite the higher costs. Audi wants to keep a distance between the even numbered Q cars (at the moment higher Q cars 4, 8) and charge a higher premium. Design therefore must be different Stadler has said.

              Audi will launch Q4 in 2019 in SUV push

              The Q4 will take design cues from the TT offroad concept, pictured.

              INGOLSTADT, Germany -- Audi confirmed it will launch its Q4 in 2019 as the brand continues to expand in the hot-selling SUV/crossover market.

              The coupe-styled SUV/crossover will challenge models such as the upcoming BMW X2 and the Range Rover Evoque.

              "We offered a preview of this type of vehicle with the Audi TT offroad concept study three years ago," Audi CEO Rupert Stadler told reporters on Wednesday here during the automaker's annual earnings news conference.

              The Q4 will be a niche model positioned between the Q3 and Q5 volume SUVs, whose volumes last year amounted to 232,045 and 278,968 vehicles, respectively.

              An Audi spokesman said no decision has been made about which markets, including the U.S., will get the Q4. But since the Q3 and Q5 both are sold in the U.S., it's a good bet the Q4 will be sold in the market, too.

              It will take many design cues from the TT Offroad concept unveiled at the 2014 Beijing auto show. The concept combined the sportiness of a coupe with the lifestyle appeal and utility of an SUV.

              Audi said it will "significantly rejuvenate" its model portfolio in the coming years with all-new models such as the Q4 and the Q8, the brand's flagship SUV, which will go on sale in 2018.

              The automaker said it will expand the Q2, which launched last year, into new markets and launch an updated Q5 this year

              New generations of its A8 flagship and A5 midsize sedans will go on sale this year and the second-generation A7 arrives next year.
