The Audi Crosslane Coupe Concept is a coupe, convertible and crossover to the Q2.
This mechanical beaut has skinny headlights (it should be a trend in future Audi vehicles). Styling cues appear to have been influenced by the Lamborghini Urus. This dual-mode hybrid boasts a 1.5-liter 3-cylinder TFSI engine and two electric motors. It may not shuttle you at a the speed of sound but it can hit 0-62 in 8.6 seconds and 9.8 seconds in pure electric mode. The 2+2-seater Audi Crosslane Coupe is 4.21 metres long, 1.88 metres wide and 1.51 metres high, with a wheelbase of 2.56 metres. Its body design comes across as powerful and striking, and it already provides a foretaste of the design language of a future generation of Audi Q models.The plug-in hybrid drive of the Audi Crosslane Coupe is as innovative as it is efficient. It comprises a combustion engine, two electric motors and a single-stage transmission; its system power is 177PS. The Audi Crosslane Coupe sprints from zero to 62mph in 8.6 seconds, and in pure electric mode takes 9.8 seconds. The car’s top speed is 113mph. It offers the potential for up to 256.8mpg and emits 26 grams per km of CO2. The lithium-ion battery has an output of 17.4 kWh, sufficient for an operating range of around 53 miles in the electric mode.
The single-frame grille, which is subdivided into several segments by struts, dominates the front end. Its prominent frame is integrated into the Multimaterial Space Frame as a supporting element. The boot forms a separate pan within the body structure; it is attached to the backs of the rear seats, which are separate from the seat cushions. At the press of a button, the entire unit travels about 40 cm forwards electrically; this is how the latched roof reaches its end position, in which it protects the luggage. At the same time, the level surface under the boot becomes accessible, and it offers a flat storage space for dirty or wet objects. State of the art technology testifies that Audi are front runners in the motoring game. One can only hope it joins the production line soon…
