Audi's latest hybrid concept

The latest prototype by Audi packs an E-Tron hybrid drivetrain and brings the TT Offroad Concept and this is going to take the standard TT family beyond the coupes and convertibles which we have known till yet. The prototype is going to be on display at the Beijing Motor Show and is going to have not one but two electric motors which will be placed on each of the axles. These motors will be brilliantly combined with 292HP turbocharged combustion engine to produce up to 408 horsepower total.

One of the most exciting things about this new concept is the ability of the wireless charging which makes this a plug-in hybrid which can easily be charged after parking in the appropriate parking spot. Even though Audi has access to this amount of power, it still claims that it can average up to 123.8 MPG. Autoblog has pointed out that much of the features of this new Audi prototype are in line with the Allroad Shooting Brake concept which was presented by Audi a few months ago at the Detroit Auto Show.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
