Audi is currently exhibiting the strange TT Offroad Concept at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show. The four-door model adds an entirely new expression to the Audi design language.

"The Audi TT offroad concept provides a glimpse of how we might imagine a new model in the future TT family," commented 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.", he added.

The petrol engine delivers 292HP (215 kW) and 380Nm (280 lb-ft), while the electric motors additional 115HP (85 kW) and 270Nm (199 lb-ft) of torque.
