Audi has released full details and images of the Prologue Avant concept set to premiere at the 85th Geneva Motor Show next week. Essentially an Avant version of the Prologue concept, the very appealing wagon has received matrix laser headlights and a large & wide single-frame grille flanked on the lower half by a pair of big air intakes. The curvaceous body shows muscular fenders and doors without handles which are operated through a subtle sensor incorporated in the window surrounds made from aluminum. Also noticeable are the 22-inch wheels, three-dimensional taillights as well as a tailgate-mounted spoiler.
The clean and uncluttered cabin features no less than three touchscreen displays while the rear seat entertainment system boasts two detachable OLED displays. The driver and passengers sit on four individual seats while the extended center console goes all the way back.
Audi has equipped the Prologue Avant concept with a plug-in hybrid system encompassing a TDI 3.0 six-cylinder engine, an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery which has a 14.1 kWh capacity. This system generates a combined output of 455 HP & 750 Nm and is enough to allow the concept sprint to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 5.1 seconds before topping out at an electronically-limited 155 mph (250 km/h).
Despite the great performances, the Prologue Avant concept manages to remain extremely frugal as it will consume just 1.6 liters / 100 km while in electric mode it will do as much as 54 km (33 miles). It should be mentioned the concept benefits from a dynamic quattro all-wheel drive system, adaptive air suspension and it will stop efficiently thanks to carbon ceramic brakes.
