Flying in the face of the more low-powered vehicles that dominate the category is Audi‘s newly unveiled plug-in hybrid concept: the Allroad Shooting Brake E-Tron Quattro. Lengthy name aside, the crossover concept offers a glimpse into the future for the German automotive giant as it combines the allroad and E-Tron design languages for the first time to create a brand new shooting brake-style vehicle. Powered by a hybrid gas-electric powertrain that sees a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with an 8.8-kWh lithium-ion battery and individual batteries for both the front and rear axles, the 3,527-lb four-seater puts out about 480 lb-ft of torque and is capable of 408 hp, acceleration from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.6 seconds, and a top speed of 155 mph – not to mention MPG rated at a whopping 123.8 under peak conditions. Those looking to travel on battery power alone can expect the car to travel about 31 miles on a single charge. Inside, grey leather and aluminum line the cabin while a 3D 12.3 inch TFT display provides all of the driver information. Set for a public debut this week at the Detroit Auto Show, the allroad Shooting Brake E-Tron Quattro Concept is said by Audi to be “a concrete look into the near future” and one that includes “a host of visual elements of future sports car models” – likely a reference to Audi’s yet-to-be-revealed evolution of the beloved TT.
