From the 2005 Audi Q7H concept, located on the lower left side of the lift gate.
Nissan and Audi have settled their dispute over the use of the letter "Q" in their vehicle names.
Nissan had sued Audi in federal court because its Infinity luxury brand has registered trademarks for several Q names (Q45, QX56, QX4).
Nissan felt Audi's use of the letter in the Q7 was an infrigement of that trademark, contending that the use of the Q by another automaker could damage the infiniti brand.
Notheless, Audi will be allowed to keep the names Q7 for its sport-utility and Q5 for its upcoming smaller ute.
However, Audi will have to change the name of its future small SUV from Q3 to something else.
