– the e-tron quattro.
In Detroit, Audi is showing the Allroad crossover model with a plug-in hybrid drive and a standard consumption of just 1.9 liters. Three engines deliver over 400 hp and should bring the car to 250 km / h.
E.A study, two series models – according to this motto, Audi is getting the Detroit customers in the mood for the new TT and the small off-road vehicle Q1 with the Allroad Shooting Break.
Because the front and rear of the blue-painted showpiece with a length of 4.20 meters and a height of 1.41 meters, together with the new single-frame grille and matrix LED headlights, provide an unmistakable reference to the design language of the designer coupe and the silhouette of the two-door model anticipates the mogul slope Benjamin, who will of course get two more doors on the way into the series.
On the inside, too, Bayern like to speak of closeness to series production. One can confidently doubt whether the movable center console of the four-seater, which is rather tightly cut with a wheelbase of 2.51 meters and which enables perfect operation in every seating position, will be available soon.
But the air vents, in whose hubs the climate control is integrated, the new MMI with fewer buttons and the free text search adapted by Google, and the virtual cockpit with the large 12.3-inch screen – all of this will come in one form or another in the TT . And the sports seats from the study could also make it into series production.
Two electric motors, a top speed of 250 km / h
“The show car combines sex appeal, highly efficient e-tron quattro technology with 300 kW with a consumption of just 1.9 l / 100 km and pioneering electronic applications,” enthused Audi board member Ulrich Hackenberg. "With this we give a very specific outlook into the near future".
While the designers for the study jump happily between coupe, off-road vehicle and all-road, the drive developers also make use of several worlds. Because the show car is a plug-in hybrid with two electric motors.
One is 40 kW and hangs via a separating clutch directly on the two-liter, 292 hp four-cylinder, which is mounted transversely at the front. And the second has 85 Nm and is stuck together with eight lithium-ion blocks in the rear of the trade fair model. Together, the three units have a system output of 408 hp and a torque of 650 Nm – enough for a sprint of 4.6 seconds and a top speed that is limited to 250 km / h.
Controlled by elaborate electronics, the motors can be combined in three driving modes: In EV mode, the Audi drives purely electrically, reaches a maximum of 130 km / h and has a range of around 50 kilometers.
Start of Q1 only in 2016
Hybrid mode is all about maximum efficiency, which with the large battery buffer leads to a consumption of 1.9 liters.
And in sport mode, all three engines work together for maximum thrust. In addition, the electronics always switch on the electric rear axle when increased traction is required. The show car then becomes the e-tron quattro on wet, snow-covered roads or in light terrain.
When Audi speaks of the reality of the Allroad Shooting Break, the Bavarians always speak of the "near future", in which parts of the study will also be seen in series. While such formulations usually mean several years anyway, this time it’s actually only about a few weeks. The Q1 will not come until 2016, but the new TT is reportedly already at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
