This year's Paris Motor Show revealed quite a bit about the future of the Audi Q range. Specifically the direction of design and technology moving forward. The car responsible for this invaluable foresight: the Audi crosslane coupe concept.
While "unique" is admittedly a buzz word, widely overused in marketing. There truly is no better way to describe the all-new crosslane coupe concept. Marking an important evolutionary stage in the automaker's lightweight construction initiative, it pioneers completely new territory with regards to weight, cost and energy usage.
Weighing in at just over three tons, in total, the concept's Multimaterial Space Frame composed of three super-lightweight yet seriously resilient materials - aluminum, carbon fiber-reinforced polymer, and glass fiber-reinforced polymer. Beyond enhancing performance, efficiency and offering paramount safety, there is another benefit that comes with the Multimaterial Space Frame. That is cost efficiency - something Audi is confident consumers will feel in their pockets.
What about the driving experience?
First you should know that the Audi crosslane coupe concept is a hybrid. A hybrid with gusto. In "cruise" mode, the concept delivers maximum efficiency. We're talking an average rating of over 213 mpg. In "race" mode, it delivers serious kick. Zero-to-60 mpg sprint time is eight-point-six seconds (or nine-point-eight in pure electric mode). Top speed is just over 113 mph.
Design-wise, our new Audi dealership is particularly taken by the new concept's removable roof and moveable trunk. These two components essentially make the concept a kind of transformer car.
