Audi Prologue pickup truck imagined

Independent artist Theophilus Chin has released a couple of renders depicting a hypothetical Audi Prologue pickup truck. Despite looking quite promising, these won’t materialize in the years to come as the Volkswagen-owned marque recently said that a pickup is not on their agenda, even though Mercedes-Benz is cooking up such a utilitarian model.

According to Audi’s chief designer Marc Lichte said the new styling language set to debut with the next-gen A8 is hard to implement on a pickup truck, but he did hint it could happen in the distant future. Perhaps if Mercedes-Benz’s model will turn out to be a success, Audi will change its mind and will launch its own version in the brand new segment of utilitarian premium pickup trucks.

Until then, the role of a pickup truck within the Volkswagen Group will remain to the Amarok but hopefully one day we will have a something close to this Audi Prologue pickup truck which doesn’t look half bad. A potential version based on this would be considerably toned down, but nevertheless it should be an interesting choice.
