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 kilometers and a total range of 880 kilometers. Its batteries are fueled 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 TThatchback 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.

With an exterior length of 4.39 meters, the Audi TT Offroad is only slightly shorter than the upcoming second generation BMW X1.
While Audi has prepared the Q3 against the X1, the TT SUV could take on a possible BMW X2 Coupe.
