Audi’s Prologue Avant concept

Hybrid cars should be economical. Small engines and big batteries, but it seems that many manufacturers don’t use this ‘’rule’’. The best example is Audi’s new hybrid concept. It is called Prologue Avant. It is 16.8 feet long, 6.5 foot width and it has 10 foot wheelbase. So, it is not a small car, actually it is bigger than ‘’Los Angeles’’ concept!

This hybrid delivers 455GHP and 553 lbs. - Ft. of torque. It has diesel 3.0L TDI engine, electric motor and a 14.1 kWh lithium-ion battery. It has a range of 33 miles and it has a rear steering (it means rear wheels are steering as well). This concept uses the same plug-in hybrid drive as the Q7 e-tron. The Audi Prologue Avant will do 0-62mph in 5.1 seconds. The gearbox is 8 speed tip-tronic, which is sending power to all four wheels. The most interesting feature is wireless charging. It means you can park it on a charging plate and it will re-charge its batteries! Audi Prologue Avant has air-suspension, which is very comfortable, but not very good for sport driving. But, this is a hybrid, so, comfort and efficiency are more important.

The interior futuristic as well. It has three touchscreen displays and additional two, detachable OLED displays, which will provide the passenger a download option. So, the passengers can watch movies or surf on internet. The rest of the interior is ordinary. Dark colors and four separate seats. This concept has 22 inch wheels with 285/30 low-profile tires. At this moment there are no more information about this concept, but it will be presented at the Geneva auto show, next week.
