Report: The next generation Audi Q7 undergoes development, to be based on MQB modular platform

A automobiles have been resorting to the use of modular platforms, which they describe to be cost efficient ways of streamlining production. In other words, manufactures have designed automobile platforms that can be stretched and molded in easy ways allowing for manufacturing flexibility.

The platforms are then used to underpin virtually an entire stable of automobiles, rather than having bespoke chassis designed from the ground up for each vehicle.

Volkswagen AG has been one of the pioneers in these manufacturing innovations and AutoCarUK reports that the next generation Audi Q7 is confirmed to be under development. That said, the new Q7 will be based on Volkswagen’s latest MQB medium-to-full size platform, which should come to no surprise.

This future MQB platform will also provide the basis for the next generation Volkswagen Touareg, Porsche Cayenne, and the production version of the Lamborghini Urus.

The new Q7 is due next year and is said to lose around 772lbs off of the current model’s curb weight. It will also use more aluminum for body panels and structural areas.

The new Volkswagen Touareg and Porsche Cayenne are expected in either 2016 or 2017 with the Urus set with a production date by the latter.
