The mixture of traditional look and modern design of the 2015 Audi Prologue Allroad Concept is what would make it stand out from other cars. This hybrid crossover made its public debut at the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show in China.
2015 Audi Prologue Allroad Concept Design
The exterior design of 2015 Audi Prologue Allroad Concept is reflected in its elegance, modernism and power. Namely, the mere lines and contours of the vehicle have a typical Audi’s touch which is praised by many people, regardless of their age. The incorporation of laser headlights and LED taillights only boosted this kind of look of this vehicle. The manufacturer used quite large 22-inch alloy wheels, and they look amazing. Trapezoidal exhaust tips are integrated in the rear bumper. The concept shown in Shanghai was painted in Dehua White color.
The interior, more than comfortable for maximum five passengers, is made from top quality materials and in the following colours: dark blue, beige and brown. In order to make the 2015 Audi Prologue Allroad Concept more interesting and up-to-date, the manufacturer also incorporated a lot of modern technologies. Some of them are a touchscreen, Bluetooth and USB connectivity. There is also the optional possibility of getting a touch screen on the every back of the seat, as you can see from the photos. Storage area has a lot of space for luggage and other stuff.
Engine, Transmission, Specs
The first thing that simply needs to be stated about the 2015 Audi Prologue Allroad Concept is that this would be a hybrid vehicle with electric plug-in. If it goes into production, it would be produced as a powerful vehicle and then it is no surprise that it has a very powerful 4.0-liter engine. This V-8 TFSI engine with turbo charging would be paired up with an electric motor and they would both be paired with an automatic transmission which would have up to eight speeds. The strength of the incorporated engine is equal to the amazing 734 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque.
The power units are paired with the all-wheel drive system, which is of great help for difficult situations that a driver may encounter. The acceleration rate, a very important factor for this vehicle, is quite impressive, the concept can reach up to 62 miles per hour (~100 km/h) in only 3.5 seconds, but not by losing its reduced fuel consumption which is expected to be 98 mpg. A few words about the electric motor, namely, it is powered by a 14.1 kWh Li-ion battery, allowing the car to travel up to 33-34 miles on a single charge.
Potential Release Date and Price
The 2015 Audi Prologue Allroad Concept hit the floor of the world car market during its official exhibition at the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show, which took place from 22-29 April in China. On the other hand, there is not any date regarding the official release for purchase of this model, and given that it’s just a concept, there’s no price tag neither. If it ever goes into manufacturing and we get a production model, its estimated price could fit somewhere between $180,000 and $200,000. Yes, its a little bit pricey, but experts predict this high cost thanks to all the equipment and technology. Some of these features might be included in the upcoming 2017 Audi A8 wagon or 2017 A6 Allroad.
