2014 NAIAS: Audi Allroad Shooting Brake Concept previews next-generation TT

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 14, 2014

Audi officially introduced at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show the Allroad Shooting Brake Concept, a vehicle that actually previews the next-generation TT sports car. The Audi Shooting Brake Concept is powered by a 2.0 TFSI petrol engine rated at 292 hp and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque.

The engine operates together 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. The electric motor is integrated in the six-speed e-S tronic, which delivers the power to the front wheels. A second electric motor is available and mounted on the rear axles. Delivering 85 kW and 270 Nm (199.14 lb-ft) of torque.

If the hybrid management system decides that all-wheel drive makes sense, then the second electric motor is used. In such situations, e.g. on a slippery road or in light off-road conditions, this essentially makes the Audi allroad shooting brake an e-tron quattro. A lithium-ion battery is also available and located just forward of the rear axle.

Consisting of eight modules, the lithium-ion batter contributes towards a balanced distribution of weight. With an energy capacity of 8.8 kWh, the battery can provide a all-electric range of 31 miles. Total system power is 408 hp and 650 Nm of torque, enough to push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.6 seconds and to a top speed of 155 mph or 250 km/h.

Audi says that the concept car has a 502-mile driving range and consumes 1.9 l/100 km of fuel.
