Audi Crosslane Coupe Concept unveiled

Posted Image

Previews future Q models.

With this Crosslane Coupe, Audi is giving us a glimpse on the design of the Q2 and other models from its Q series. This is a plug-in hybrid concept consisting of a 3-cylinder 1.5-liter TFSI engine and two electric motors that allow the vehicle to return 213.8 mpg US (255 mpg UK or 1.1 liters / 100 km), with CO2 emissions of only 26 g/km.

It uses a Multimaterial Space Frame made from aluminum, CFRP and glass fiber-reinforced polymer (GFRP), achieving a curb weight of approximately 3,064 lbs (1,390 kg). It has a combined power output of 177 hp (130 kW) and sprints from 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 8.6 seconds in hybrid mode, while in all electric mode it needs 9.8 seconds. The Crosslane Coupe can hit a top speed of 113 mph (182 km/h) and provides a maximum electric range of 53.4 miles (86 km) from its 17.4 kWh lithium-ion battery.

This concept is 4.21 meters long, 1.88 meters wide and 1.51 meters high, with a wheelbase of 2.56 meters. It is important to mention that this is a dual-mode hybrid so it enables different operating modes. Up to 34 mph (55 km/h), the drive power is provided by the second electric motor while in serial mode the TFSI engine and the first electric motor generate electrical energy for supporting, relieving or substituting the battery.

It can be driven in electric mode at speeds of up to 80.7 mph (130 km/h), while above 34 mph (55 km/h) the TFSI engine and the alternator are coupled to the drivetrain. The main drive source will be the TFSI engine above speeds of 80.7 mph (130 km/h) but the first electric motor can support if necessary.

Interesting looking concept. The shape is kind of ugly, but I kind of like the look of the interior.

Okay, I just looked through the pictures again, the shape is very ugly, not kind of. I'm not a big fan of the silly crossover type styling.

not liking it... i love audi's minimalistic designs but this seems more like a page from cadillac's books with pointed edges and fewer curves.

all audi's look the same on the outside
the best test is to get a woman who knows nothing about cars, and she will be able to correctly identify an audi, cos they all look the same! (whereas normally they would confuse a bmw with a merc).

the interior looks good, but unlikely for something "lower" down in the Q range to get that interior. Normally all their interiors are filled with black and red buttons like its the 80's!
