Beijing Live - Audi TT Offroad Concept
Karthik H, A bit of a car freak and a bike nut, and a fan of trucks and technology too. Expect sharp stories that focus on those four fronts. As always, stay tuned to IndianAutosBlog.com for quick and unassuming updates from across the world.
Audi has unveiled the Audi TT Offroad Concept at the ongoing 2014 Beijing Auto Show, combining the sportiness of a coupe and the utility of a small SUV.
The concept features a hybrid powertrain that combines a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged TFSI engine with two electric motors to give a combined power output of 300 kW and 650 Nm of torque.
The petrol engine is coupled with a disc-shaped electric motor that is integrated into the 6-speed e-Stronic transmission to send power to the front wheels. Mounted on the rear axle is a second electric motor that is independent of the aforementioned drive unit, making 85 kW and 270 Nm of torque.
The 54:46 weight distribution of the car is maintained by a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery pack containing 8 modules mounted in front of the rear axle. The battery pack gives the car a range of 50 km on all-electric mode.
Apart from the standard charging procedure, the concept car also shows off its inductive wireless charging capabilities, whereby the car can simply be driven on to a plate and it will be charged. The time taken to charge by this method is similar to the wire method.
