While the Audi revealed their beautiful and futuristic Prologue concept at the LA Motorshow last year, which can be named A9 in the future, they are ready with the Avant version of the A9 which will be revealed at the upcoming Geneva Motorshow. The Avant plug-in hybrid of the prologue concept is said to deliver impressive mileage figures of 62kmpl.
The Audi prologue Avant will feature a Matrix Laser headlights borrowed from A8, neatly integrated in a single frame grille and muscular fenders. The doors are handleless which can be operated via a sensor situated in the window surrounds. The backlights are three dimensional and the five-door estate sits on the 22 inch alloy wheels with a wheelbase of 3.04 metres.
While the exteriors of Prologue Avant are all about class, performance and luxury, the interiors boast of a mix of top-notch materials. Aluminum trims, dark ash wood trim veneers and Unikat leather upholstery are used to build one of the most sophisticated interiors ever. And there is no shortage of technology inside the cabin too, with three touchscreen displays and two OLED displays situated at the rear area for passenger entertainment.
Like Audi Q7 e-Tron Quattro, the Audi Prologue Avant plug-in hybrid Concept is also powered by a 3.0 litre diesel TDI motor, alas in a more advanced stage. The electric motor is more produces a total of 455ps of peak power and 750Nm of peak torque, while the Q7 e-tron delivers only 374hp and 700Nm of torque. Audi claims that the Prologue Avant Concept will accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in 5.1 seconds and have a top speed of 250 kmph.
But the talking point of this car is its fuel efficiency, which stands at stands at 62.5kmpl in hybrid mode and 54km when on pure electric. In addition to this powertrain setup, the concept gets carbon ceramic brakes, adaptive air suspension and Quattro all wheel drive steering system.
