Audi is bringing the next chapter of the Prologue concept series to the 2015 Geneva Auto Show in the form of this Avant Concept. It’s a little more wagon than four-door coupe. However, is this predicting what the Audi A9 will look like?
This time around, the Prologue Avant is using a diesel-hybrid system that is based on the 2016 Audi Q7’s setup, debuting later this year; Audi calls it “e-tron quattro”. It combines a 3.0L turbo-diesel engine with an electric motor for a total system output of 455 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. Naturally, power goes to all four wheels with the new e-tron quattro.
Audi says the car is capable of 33.6 miles of all-electric cruising thanks to a 14.1 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. It can complete the 0-62 mph sprint in 5.1 seconds, while top speed is limited to 155 mph. It also has air suspension and four-wheel steering. In all, the Prologue Avant concept does not seem to compromise between power, performance, and efficiency.
The Prologue’s Interior is filled to the brim with the latest advancements in technology and a plethora of OLED screens.
Overall then, is this concept a thinly-disguised Audi A9? There is no official word on this yet, but in my opinion, it just might happen.
