The closest we got to an official confirmation were comments from CEO Rupert Stadler that the Q family still has potential and that it is not yet complete.
Any new crossover based on the A1 platform would almost certainly be labeled a Q1 and compete in the same niche as vehicles like the recently revealed Buick Encore and Ford EcoSport, though the Audi would be much more premium.
Now a company insider has revealed to What Car? that Q1 is being considered, though any launch would still be years away.
“You've seen how our SUVs have been getting smaller--Q7, Q5, Q3--and the A1 platform could go in that direction, but nothing is planned for the near future,” the insider said.
