Audi Concept Car

The Futures Bright … Its Green !

I don’t usually feature Green cars on MCB, but the new Audi – released today at the Tokyo Autoshow – is simply a hyper-attractive hybrid which will leave car and gadget enthusiast jaw dropped.

Currently dubbed the Metroproject Quattro, this 3 door (2 front doors and a hatchback) can achieve 100km (60 miles or so) on just 4.9 liters (roughly 1.3 gallons) of gas. How so? Simple. The Metroproject Quattro rocks a 1.4 litre TFSI (turbocharged) gas engine and a 30KW electrics motor which is positioned at the rear axle. Apparently the rear, electric engine will kick in during acceleration and ultimately turns into an AWD vehicle. Furthermore, 80% of torque is achievable at just 1,250 RPMs (my GTI requires 2,000+ to achieve turbo kick in). I’m not sure if it’s a user option (i.e. a switch that can be flipped), but supposedly the electric motor – which runs on a Lithium Ion battery – can run independently, thus accomplishing 0 emissions and provides a range of 100km.

0-60 is achieved in 7.8 seconds. Not the fastest vehicle, but I’m sure tweaking is on the horizon.

  1. Great post! Just wanted to let you know you have a new subscriber- me!

  2. Is this the same Quattro concept I have seen in white around the internet? If so, I am very surprised it’s only a 1.4 litre engine. Or is this the A1?

    I love that new Quattro concept, just hope it has a larger engine than that.

Do you have something to say?
