Ingolstadt, February 25, 2015 – A design with dynamic elegance and the latest high-end technologies: The Audi prologue Avant show car with its stretched roof which the brand is presenting at the Geneva Motor Show gives a look into the future – with the new and emotion-filled design language that Audi has initiated with its study in the coupé, the prologue.
A glance into the future
In November 2014 at the Los Angeles Motor Show, Audi presented the Audi prologue concept car, giving a look to the brand’s future design language. Only four months later, the premium manufacturer is showing a variant of its visionary concept at the Geneva Motor Show. The Audi prologue Avant combines dynamics, form and function in a perfect synthesis. With a length of 5.11 metres and a width of 1.97 metres, the five-door car with its pioneering body concept positions itself clearly in the luxury class. At the same time, it offers unmistakable sportiness and variability. Technology is becoming an experience, both outside and inside: The driver and up to three passengers can enjoy a luxurious interior and are digitally connected thanks to a state-of-the-art infotainment architecture and connect technology.
Architecture and operation are united
The luxurious interior is kept in dark shades. Here as well, the show car offers a new experience: The straight-lined architecture forms one whole with its display and control concept. The consistent front of the dashboard is composed of three touch displays. Moreover, the driver and up to three passengers can establish a digital communication via two OLED-displays made from organic LEDs. The extremely slim, detachable OLED displays in the rear – a spin-off of the Audi tablet from the new Audi Q7 – provide passengers with on-demand information and entertainment.
Technology close to series production
The Audi prologue Avant uses technology which is close to series production. It is equipped with the plug-in hybrid drive from the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro which achieves even higher performance in the show car. 335 kW of system power output by the 3.0 TDI engine and the electric motor in combination make the car sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds. The purely electric range is 54 kilometres. The chassis is equipped with adaptive air suspension and the dynamic all-wheel-drive steering system – thus combining comfort, sportiness, handling and stability on a new performance level.
