At the 2014 Beijing Motor Show, Audi unveils the TT Offroad Concept which extends the TT line-up. Audi board member Professor Ulrich Hackenberg says the concept points to an expansion of the TT brand into the premium SUV space.

Audi says the concept is powered by a 215kW turbocharged 2.0-liter engine augmented by a pair of electric motors that work as a plug-in hybrid system. The power system produces 300kW and 650Nm, enough for the car to accelerate to 100km/h in just 5.2 seconds.

Audi claims the car uses just 1.9L/100km of fuel, offering a battery-only range of 50 kilometres and a total range of 880 kilometres. Its batteries are fuelled by inductive charging, allowing owners to charge the car by parking over a special plate as opposed to plugging it in.

The TT Offroad concept looks about as good as a five-door TT hatchback could, with much of the sports car’s sleek lines preserved, particularly in that in-your-face front end. The overall body resembles the Audi Allroad wagon.

Inside the four-place cabin is Audi’s forthcoming Virtual Cockpit Technology with a customizable 12.3-inch TFT display projecting high-quality 3D graphics to the driver. Other technology includes three Audi Smart Displays, which serve as mobile infotainment systems both in and out of the car, and a cabin ionizer to remove allergens from the cabin atmosphere.
