Allroad shooting brake with Audi phone box: Intelligent near future in Ice Blue

“The show car combines sex appeal, highly efficient e-tron-quattro technology that produces 300 kW of power yet only consumes 1.9 l/100 km (123.80 US mpg) 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.”

Audi allroad shooting brake (3)Audi allroad shooting brake exterior design points to a complete unit from it’s single-frame grille to tornado line and crisp rear styling. It has a wheelbase of 2.51 meters (8.23 ft), the show car – painted in Ice Blue – is 4.20 metres (13.78 ft) long, 1.85 metres (6.07 ft) wide and 1.41 metres (4.63 ft) tall.

Audi allroad shooting brake show car features an Audi phone box, which links the driver’s cell phone to the vehicle electrical system and can charge as necessary.

Plug-in hybrid drive delivers impressive 300 kW (408 hp) of system power and a system torque of 650 Nm (479.42 lb-ft). The show car weighs about 1,600 kg (3527.40 lb) and gets to highway speed of 62.14 mph in 4.6 seconds. Forward acceleration continues until it is electronically limited at 250 km/h (155.34 mph). Low fuel consumption of 1.9 litres of fuel per 100 km (123.80 mpg) (45 g CO2 per km [72.42 g/mile]) is based on the relevant ECE standard. Total driving range is up to 820 km (509.52 miles).

2.0 TFSI four-cylinder with a large turbocharger is a high-end engine. Here Audi allroad shooting brake outputs 215 kW (292 hp) of power and generates 380 Nm (280.27 lb-ft) of torque. In part-load operation, indirect injection supplements direct gasoline injection to improve fuel economy. Exhaust manifold is integrated in the cylinder head for high-performance thermal management.

2.0 TFSI works with a disc-shaped electric motor via a decoupling clutch. The electric motor outputs 40 kW of power and 270 Nm (199.14 lb-ft) of torque, and is integrated in the six-speed e-S tronic. Dual clutch transmission sends torque to the front wheels. A 2nd electric motor separate from this drive unitis mounted to the rear axle, and supplies propulsive power at low and moderate vehicle speeds with max power of 85 kW and 270 Nm (199.14 lb-ft) of torque. It can be operated in tandem with the motor and engine at the front axle if the hybrid management system decides that all-wheel drive makes sense.
