Audi Prologue Avant concept with a plug-in hybrid powertrain debuts in Geneva

Audi Prologue Avant concept is described as a new interpretation of the Avant philosophy, giving us a look to the brand’s future design language.

The sleek and clean design is highlighted by a very big and wide single frame grille, narrow Matrix Laser headlights and big air intakes at the front.

Moving to the sides we see muscular fenders, handle-less doors, aluminium window surrounds, a tailgate-mounted spoiler, three dimensional taillights and huge 22-inch alloy wheels.

Stopping power is guaranteed with carbon ceramic brakes and there is also an adaptive air suspension and a dynamic all-wheel-drive steering system.

The interior is very clean again showing aluminium, dark ash wood trim and Unikat leather. There are three touchscreen displays and two detachable OLED displays that act as a rear seat entertainment system.

The car is a true four seater with four individual seats separated by a long centre console.

Power comes from a plug-in hybrid system combining a 3.0-litre TDI engine, an electric motor and a 14.1 kWh lithium-ion battery for a total output of 455 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque.

0-62mph comes in 5.1 seconds and the top speed is 155mph. Average fuel economy is an impressive 176.5 mpg and range in purely electric model up to 54 km (33.6 miles).
