Audi Allroad Shooting Brake concept

We have here the new Audi allroad Shooting brake model which makes its official debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The engineers have offered a hybrid drive which is actually quite powerful an efficient. The exterior part of the model seems to be sculpted from one solid piece, from the single-frame grille to the distinctive tornado line and crisp rear styling. This is the first model to combine the allroad and e-tron form languages. The part that offers the e-tron capabilities includes an insert with narrow fins, which resemble the cooling ribs of an electronic component. Typical of the shooting brake style, it descends early and runs out into the distinctive C-pillars.

There is a charging port in the left pillar and a fuel door in the right pillar. At the back, the specialists have offered the aluminum underbody. The interior shows that fact that the car uses the colors anthracite and rock grey. The interior design of the Audi allroad shooting brake also uses the lightweight design, sporty elegance and easy to use controls. The central console matches the seat adjustments so that the controls remain at an optimal distance to the driver. Designers have made the cockpit very driver friendly as the steering wheel and digital instrument cluster lie in a single direct line of sight. Another feature of the car is the Audi phone box which creates a connection between the cell phone of the driver to the vehicle electrical system and can inductively charge it as necessary.

The plug-in hybrid drive model is capable of accessing 300 kW and 650 Nm of torque which enables the model to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and to reach an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h. In terms of fuel consumption, the engineers managed to obtain 1.9 liters per 100 km.
