“The Audi TT offroad concept provides a peek of how we competence suppose a new indication in a destiny TT family,” says Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Member of a Board of Management for Technical Development. “It combines a sporty genes of a TT with a strengths of a compress Audi SUV. Its plug‑in hybrid expostulate with a choice of preliminary charging is a vital step toward a mobility of a future. We chose to benefaction a Audi TT offroad concept in China, a second domestic market, since it represents a civic mobility of tomorrow: It is sustainable, dynamic, intelligent and connected.”
The plug-in hybrid drive
The plug‑in hybrid expostulate in a Audi TT offroad concept delivers 300 kW (408 hp) of complement outlay and 650 Nm (479.2 lb‑ft) of complement torque. The uncover automobile accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 5.2 seconds and reaches a electronically governed tip speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph) though any trouble. It consumes usually 1.9 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (123.8 US mpg), a CO2 equivalent of 45 grams per kilometer (72.4 g/mile).
The Audi TT offroad concept can expostulate over 50 kilometers (31.1 miles) usually on electric appetite and so with 0 internal emissions, and has a sum operation of adult to 880 kilometers (546.8 miles).
The explosion engine is a 2.0 TFSI producing 215 kW (292 hp) and 380 Nm (280.3 lb‑ft) of torque. The two-liter, four‑cylinder section with a vast turbocharger is packaged with Audi’s manly potency technology. At partial load, surreptitious injection supplements gasoline approach injection for revoke fuel consumption. The empty plural is integrated into a cylinder conduct – a substructure for a high-performance thermal government system.
A separating purchase links a cross 2.0 TFSI to an electric engine producing 40 kW and 220 Nm (162.3 lb‑ft) of torque. The slim, disc-shaped electric engine is integrated into a six-speed e‑S tronic. The dual-clutch transmissions sends a torque to a front wheels. Mounted on a behind spindle of a Audi TT offroad concept is a second electric engine eccentric of this expostulate unit. This produces a limit of 85 kW and 270 Nm (199.1 lb‑ft).
In front of a behind spindle is a liquid-cooled, lithium-ion battery comprising 8 modules. It contributes to a equivalent 54:46 weight placement between a front and behind axles and to a low core of gravity. The battery stores adult to 12 kWh of energy, adequate for an electric operation of 50 kilometers (31.1 miles). An Audi wall box, that manages a appetite feed conveniently and cleverly and can understanding with a accumulation of voltages and outlets, is used for still charging.
The uncover automobile is also designed for use with Audi Wireless Charging record for contactless preliminary charging. The infrastructure side – a image with a curl and an inverter (AC/AC converter) – is placed on a parking mark of a Audi TT offroad concept and connected to a appetite grid. The charging routine starts automatically when a automobile drives onto a plate. The swapping captivating margin of a infrastructure side induces a 3.3 kW swapping stream opposite a atmosphere opening in a delegate coil, that is integrated into a vehicle. The stream is inverted and fed into a electrical system.
Charging stops automatically when a battery is entirely charged. It takes about as prolonged as charging around a cable, and a motorist can miscarry a routine during any time. The Audi Wireless Charging record is some-more than 90 percent efficient, and is not influenced by continue factors such as rain, sleet or ice. The swapping field, that is usually generated when a automobile is on a plate, is not damaging for people or animals.
The intelligent plug‑in hybrid judgment of a Audi TT offroad concept unequivocally shines when driving, creation a uncover automobile each bit as fit as it is sporty. The Audi drive select government complement offers 3 pushing modes. EV mode gives priority to electric driving. In this case, a front expostulate section is inactive, and a electric engine during a behind spindle with a absolute torque can quick accelerate a four‑door car to a limit of 130 km/h (80.8 mph). In Hybrid mode, all three drives work together in several ways as necessary. In many situations a front electric engine assumes a purpose of a generator. Powered by a engine, it recharges a battery and so extends a electric range. Full complement outlay is accessible in Sport mode. During “boosting,” i.e. clever acceleration, a behind electric engine works together with a 2.0 TFSI. The same thing happens when a hybrid government complement decides that all‑wheel drive is appropriate. In such situations, e.g. on a sleazy highway or in light off-road conditions, this radically creates a Audi TT offroad concept an e‑tron quattro.
When a motorist takes his or her feet off a accelerator, free-wheeling or “coasting” is activated. Recuperation occurs here during low speeds and when braking. The motorist can use a “Hold” and “Charge” functions in a MMI complement to privately change a battery’s assign state, e.g. to boost storage of electric appetite so that it can be used over a final kilometers to a destination.
The Audi TT offroad concept shows a clever impression on any highway aspect and in any terrain. On pavement a uncover automobile is sporty and composed, and it can simply hoop light turf interjection to a high belligerent clearance, brief overhangs and e‑tron quattro all-wheel drive. 255/40-series tires are mounted on 21‑inch wheels, whose ethereal five-arm pattern draws on a demeanour of a Audi e‑tron models. Dark trim provides contrast.
Many of a components of a McPherson front cessation are done of aluminum; a four‑link behind spindle handles longitudinal and cross army separately. The ratio of a on-going steering changes with a steering input. The Audi drive select complement allows a motorist to cgange a duty of several technical modules in mixed steps.
Driver assistance systems
The Audi TT offroad concept uncover automobile facilities dual Audi driver assistance systems that are roughly prepared for production: a intersection partner and online trade light information technology. The intersection partner aims to assistance to equivocate side-impact collisions, or revoke their severity, where lanes combine and during intersections. Radar sensors and a wide-angle video camera indicate zones to a front and sides of a car. If a complement detects a automobile coming from a side and assesses it to be critical, graduated warnings are displayed in a Audi virtual cockpit.
Online trade light information is a record that connects a Audi TT offroad concept around a dungeon phone network to a executive trade computer, that controls a trade light systems in a city. Based on a information from this system, a Audi practical cockpit shows a motorist what speed to expostulate in sequence to strech a subsequent trade light while it is green. The cockpit displays a time remaining when watchful for a light to spin green.
Like many of a brand’s new prolongation models, a Audi TT offroad concept is also formed on a versatile modular cross pattern (MQB). The physique of a uncover automobile is formed on a ASF (Audi Space Frame) component and facilities a hybrid judgment with both steel and aluminum components. Together with a battery package of a plug-in hybrid expostulate system, it gives a compress crossover a low core of gravity, that is a exigency for a sporty performance.
4.39 meters (16.2 ft) long, 1.85 meters (6.1 ft) far-reaching and a wheelbase of 2.63 meters (8.6 ft) – in these measure a Audi TT offroad judgment resembles today’s compress SUV, a Audi Q3*. At 1.53 meters (5.0 ft) tall, however, it is 8 centimeters (3.2 in) shorter, creation a sporty impression apparent during initial glance. The Sonora Yellow outdoor skin appears to have been modeled from a plain block; a interplay of a clearly drawn lines and a muscularly frozen surfaces produces a rarely thespian design. It uses a pattern denunciation of a Audi TT*, though places a elements in a new context.
Horizontal lines browbeat during a front of a new Audi TT offroad concept. The extended Singleframe grille temperament a 4 rings is sculpturally embedded in a body. Two pointed indents in a revoke segment make a grille seem lighter. Narrow louvers in a grille insert form a structure customary of a Audi e‑tron models.
The vast atmosphere inlets next a Matrix LED headlights are framed in pointy edges and structured with louvers. A third, prosaic estuary next a grille joins them together. Inside is a blade that increases downforce on a front spindle and creates a front of a Audi TT offroad concept seem even wider.
When noticed from a side, a attribute between a uncover automobile and a Audi TT* is even some-more apparent. The overhangs are short; a hothouse is sportily low and drawn in neatly toward a top. The tallness ratio is 30:70. The window pattern follows a sporty coupe line. The roof contour drops down again early; excellent light-refracting edges make a powerful, really prosaic C-pillars seem lighter.
The Audi TT offroad concept has a powerful, hunkered-down position on a road. The extended semi‑circles of a circle wells form apart geometric bodies, neatly accentuating a vast wheels. The front circle good intersects a corner of a engine hood, that runs above a doorway as a hurricane line and continues to a behind of a car.
The middle arc segments of a circle wells are embellished in resisting gray. Together with a bottom section of a sill strips, that is also gray, they revoke a manifest weight of a physique and underscore a strong impression of a uncover car. Adorned with a quattro logo, a sill itself forms a confidant light-refracting edge.
At a rear, plane lines support athletically frozen surfaces. The equivalent fender envelopes a dual turn tailpipes of a empty system. A blade with a quattro trademark connects them and provides for manifest width.
The interior of a Audi TT offroad concept offers space for four. The behind chair can accommodate dual adults comfortably. The slim foe seats with integrated conduct restraints safeguard parallel hold. The side bolsters of a front seats are really strongly contoured.
The pattern ideas of a new TT were also a impulse for a sporty interior of a uncover car. The tip of a instrument row is designed as a wing. This is upheld by a manifest aluminum structure that as a plane pattern component incorporates a atmosphere vents and underscores a breadth of a interior. The turn atmosphere vents are suggestive of jet engines and incorporate a atmosphere conditioning controls. The slim instrument row is focused on a driver.
Besides elements from a TT*, a pattern of a core console and a doors of a uncover automobile also embody countless elements from a Q family, such as a dynamically designed hovel support and organic crater holders in front of a change lever.
A vast series of functions can be tranquil around a multifunction steering circle or a MMI depot on a core hovel console. The menu structure is oriented on a intelligent phone, with all pivotal functions easy to reach. The motorist can use finger gestures on a touchpad of a MMI depot to wizz or corkscrew in lists and maps. All other functions can be simply tranquil around a multifunction steering circle though carrying to demeanour divided from a road.
Serving as a arrangement instrument is a Audi practical cockpit. The 12.3‑inch TFT arrangement produces high-quality 3D graphics. The motorist can customize a arrangement with a pull of a button. The classical perspective is dominated by a speedometer and a appetite scale for a plug‑in hybrid drive. In Infotainment mode, elements such as a navigation map or online trade information displays take core stage. The Audi virtual cockpit also displays minute information on charging with a Audi Wireless Charging technology.
The core hovel console, that extends all a approach to a behind seat, contains countless crater holders and storage bins. One of these is indifferent for a Audi phone box, that connects a driver’s dungeon phone to a on‑board electronics and also charges it inductively, when necessary.
The uncover car’s movement complement also includes an ionizer – an updated chronicle of a complement used in a A6* and a A8*. Ionization significantly improves a peculiarity of a atmosphere in a cabin. The customary cabin atmosphere filters also mislay particulates from a atmosphere and are unmatched by a evident competition. Thanks to a systematic offer growth of these filters, even allergens will be neutralized in a future. An LED light in a interior of a atmosphere opening lights adult when a ionizer is incited on.
The uncover automobile is versed with 3 Audi Smart Displays. The quick tablets offer as a mobile infotainment complement for use inside and outward of a car. From DVD or TV streaming to determining a radio or navigation planning, a Audi Smart Display is intensely versatile. One click on a “more” symbol in a start menu establishes an Internet tie around Audi bond during LTE speed. The user now has entrance to all of a functions of a Android handling system, from browsing with Google Chrome to visiting a Google Play store.
The Audi Smart Display was evenly grown for use in cars and can simply withstand even impassioned temperatures. Rear chair passengers can place a arrangement in special mountings on a backs of a front seats. All three displays can be used simultaneously. When not regulating a displays, passengers in a behind chair can reserve them in a specifically designed container between a seats, where a displays are also recharged. The front chair newcomer can store a arrangement in a glove compartment.
Two loudspeakers for a Bang Olufsen Advanced Sound System are commissioned in a conduct restraints of a particular seats. They yield for optimal approximate sound via a cabin to emanate a special sound experience. The conduct patience speakers are also used for voice announcements and telephony. This guarantees unusually good sound peculiarity and superb debate delivery even during fast, sporty driving.
A custom-designed box in a case contains a 1:8‑scale radio‑controlled (RC) car. There is also space for a battery and tools. The power-folding particular behind seats concede for a scarcely prosaic load floor.
In gripping with a sporty impression of a uncover car, a interior facilities excellent materials and a multiple of light and dim gray tones. Granite Gray Fine Nappa leather is used on a edge of a steering circle and in a outdoor zones of a doorway liners. The headliner, a post covers, a doorway panels and a core hovel are lonesome with relating Alcantara. The doorway armrests, a core hovel console and a seats with diamond-patterned stitching are lonesome in really soft, lush Stone Gray leather from a Italian association Poltrona Frau.
