Audi is clearly very keen on promoting its new flagship Q8 SUV – you certainly won't miss the fact that it's on the way, thanks to an array of teaser images, a five-video series looking at the development of the car and even some design sketches from the team of scribblers at Ingolstadt who have come up with the look of the car.Having seen the Q8 and Q8 Sport concepts last year, the sketch seems quite familiar and it goes to show that the production model won’t stray away too far from the show models.

But with rivals such as the Mini achieving more than double that figure (it sold in 215,549 units last year), Audi has yet to tap into the full sales potential of this segment.
