Take a look at the future of the Audi TT lineup, do you like what you see?
Debuting at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show is the Audi TT offroad concept show car, a study that combines the sportiness of a coupe with the utility of a compact SUV. Ever since the all-new TT debuted earlier this year, Audi has hinted that it plans on expanding the sports car’s lineup, potentially adding a sedan and crossover variant. That crossover variant will likely be based on this TT offroad concept car, which features a plug-in hybrid powertrain with 408 hp and has the potential of hitting 123.8 mpg. On solely electric power alone, the TT offroad concept car is capable of traveling 31.1 miles and has a total range of 546.8 miles.

As for measurements, the crossover comes in at 16.2-feet long, 6.1-feet wide and has a wheelbase of 8.6 feet, resembling the current Audi Q3. It is however, 3.2 inches shorter, giving it a sportier appearance.
“The Audi TT offroad concept provides a glimpse of how we might imagine a new model in the future TT family,” says Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Member of the Board of Management for Technical Development. “It combines the sporty genes of the TT with the strengths of a compact Audi SUV. Its plug‑in hybrid drive with the option of inductive charging is a major step toward the mobility of the future. We chose to present the Audi TT offroad concept in China, our second domestic market, because it represents the urban mobility of tomorrow: It is sustainable, dynamic, intelligent and connected.”
