AUDI has pooled the genes of its rugged allroad models and its forthcoming e-tron hybrids to create a futuristic new crossover concept on show at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
The Audi allroad shooting brake combines the elegant lines of a shooting brake with the purposeful stance of an allroad. As befits an allroad-themed study, its hybrid drive — which is as powerful as it is efficient — also makes a new form of quattro drive possible — e-tron quattro.
“The show car combines sex appeal, highly efficient e-tron-quattro technology that produces 300kW of power yet only consumes 1.9 l/100 km of fuel and cutting-edge electronic applications,” says Prof Dr Ulrich Hackenberg, member of the board of AUDI AG, technical development. “We are offering very concrete glimpses of the near future in this show car.”
