Audi Prologue Avant Boasts 455-HP Hybrid Powertrain

Feb 25, 2015 - 2:35 PM - by AutoGuide.com

Audi is previewing more than its design future at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

The German automaker has spilled the details on its new Prologue Avant concept, which will make its official debut in Switzerland early next week. Featuring a high-performance hybrid powertrain with 455 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque, Audi claims that the technology is 'close to series production' and hints at the potential of what is already powering current Audi models. The plug-in hybrid drive actually comes from the existing Q7 e-tron quattro, albeit with more power, using a 3.0-liter diesel engine with an electric motor to blast the concept to 62 MPH (100 km/h) in 5.1 seconds. The concept also has an all-electric range of 33.6 miles.

The Prologue Avant concept measures in at 16.8 feet long and 6.5 feet wide while riding on a 10-foot wheelbase. All in all, itís a little larger than the two-door Prologue concept that debuted at the 2014 LA Auto Show but sports four individual seats, four doors and a large tailgate.
