Audi has trademarked three new model names, potentially offering an early hint at upcoming performance and family SUV models.

Topping the trio is the Q9 badge, suggesting that Audi is planning a more luxurious model that would - somehow - sit about the already giant Q7 SUV.

"We can go bigger than we have with the Q7, and we can all see that this sector is growing," Audi R&D boss Wolfgang Dürheimer reportedly told Britain's Autocar earlier this year.

News of the Q9 badge also follows reports that a coupe-like Q8 is in the works, although it is possible that the Q9 will fill that role, and the Q8 badge may never appear.

Audi is also understood to have registered the names SQ2 and SQ4, hinting at performance versions of the expected Q2 compact and Q4 SUVs.

It is expected that both the Q2 and Q4 will take on a more sporting profile, slotting into the range alongside the existing Q3 and Q5 models - much as BMW has done with the X6 and the coming X4.

The company is also understood to have registered the name 'f-tron', adding credence to reports that Audi will deliver a hydrogen fuel-cell model to complement the existing e-tron and g-tron cars.
