Audi Q4 Concept previewed before its official debut at Auto China 2014

Audi has just unveiled the latest sketched of its newest concept car that will be revealed at the Beijing Motor Show a.k.a. Auto China 2014. As you may know already, this new concept car previews the upcoming Audi Q4 that will take on cars such as the recently introduced BMW X4 and the Porsche Macan.

Taking a closer look at the sketches we can see that it shares similar design cues with the Allroad Shooting Brake Concept that made its debut back in January at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. The new Q4 Concept features the well-known Audi signature grille, LED headlights, a clamshell-style hood, prominent wheelarch flares but also a sexy curved roofline.

The rear end looks inspired by the new Audi TT featuring stylish taillights, a roof spoiler as well as a two-pipe exhaust system. Inside, we find enough space for four persons, each sitting on individual sport bucket seats. Under the hood, there is a plug-in petrol-electric hybrid drivetrain just like the one seen on the Allroad Shooting Brake Concept.

This means that the Audi Q4 Concept is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine and two electric motors, one mounted within the rear axle, while the other one is integrated in the S-Tronic double clutch auto gearbox. The petrol engine delivers 292 hp and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque, while the disc-shaped electric motor found in the S-Tronic generates 40 kW and 270 Nm (199.14 lb-ft) of torque.

Moreover, the second electric motor develops 85 kW and 270 Nm (199.14 lb-ft) of torque. The total output delivered by the hybrid system is 408 hp and 650 Nm of torque. Still, the new Q4 Concept car developed for the Auto China 2012 will also showcase new inductive charging system for its lithium-ion battery pack, alongside a traditional plug.
