Audi has unveiled an all new hybrid concept car at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show. This four door, radical looking concept is called Audi TT Offroad Concept and it is based on, you guessed it, the new generation Audi TT. The TT Offroad Concept is a capable utility vehicle which has a coupe-like styling and features a hybrid powertrain, meaning it would deliver astounding performance without sacrificing fuel efficiency.
Powering the plug-in hybrid is a combination of drivetrains: a 2.0 liter TFSI petrol engine and two electric motors. The 2.0 liter TFSI petrol heart produces 292 PS and peak torque of 380 Nm. Paired to the internal combustion engine via a separating clutch is an electric motor that delivers an additional 40 kW and peak torque of 220 Nm. There is a second electric motor as well that is mounted on the rear axle and produces 85 kW and 270 Nm. The combined output of the system is 408 PS and 650 Nm. Powering the electric motors is a 12 kW battery that offers an all electric drive range of 31 miles. Fuel efficiency is rated at 148 mpg.
The show car features Audi Wireless Charging technology which uses a plate that is to be placed on the parking spot of the car and plugged into a power source. The charging process initiates as soon as the car drives onto the plate. Wireless charging takes nearly the same amount of time as the conventional cable charging does. It also comes with Audi drive select management system that offers three different driving modes: EV, Hybrid and Sport.
Talking about the features now, the concept packs online traffic light information and junction assistant technology, Audi virtual cockpit, a wide Singleframe grille, Matrix LED headlights, horizontal character lines, twin round exhaust tailpipes, slim sport seats, led lit jet engine-inspired round air vents, Q-family influenced center console, Audi MMI system, 12.3-inch TFT display with 3D graphics, Audi Smart Display and much more. It also equips a Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System with two speakers installed in the head restraints of each of the seats for a special sound experience.
