The recent E-Tron is a little nondescript, but we like it.

Audi’s electrical car naming scheme has been, at finest, a small complicated. The authentic E-Tron is a pretty wonderful two-row SUV, there’s an E-Tron GT, which is a coupe-sedan point. Then the naming conventions improved so that “E-Tron” became a signifier of staying electrical instead than a product title itself. 

Thankfully, Audi would seem to be leaning into the latter technique of naming things, one thing that is reinforced by a report revealed on Nov. 10 by a Belgian website termed RTL. That publication confirms that Audi will be phasing out its E-Tron SUV and changing it with a greater, additional luxe SUV identified as the Q8 E-Tron. 

This Q8 E-Tron is thanks in 2026, 3 several years just after a prepared midcycle refresh for the latest E-Tron SUV, in accordance to Audi manager Markus Duesmann. The new electric uber-SUV is also slated to be just one of as numerous as 20 new completely battery-electric powered types that Audi plans to start by 2026.

Manufacturing of the Q8 E-Tron will consider put in Belgium, which now has a really going on automotive business, owing to the manufacturing of other Audi models and Volvo’s manufacturing unit in Ghent.

We achieved out to Audi for remark but didn’t hear back in time for publication.
