Audi’s latest prototype packing an E-Tron hybrid drivetrain is this TT Offroad Concept that takes the TT family beyond the coupes and convertibles we’re familiar with.

Going on display at the Beijing Motor Show, it combines two electric motors (one on each axle) with a 292HP turbocharged combustion engine to produce up to 408 horsepower total.

The concept is even quipped with wireless charging tech, making the “plug-in” hybrid possible to charge simply by parking in the right spot. As a result, despite having all that power available, Audi claims it can average up to 123.8 MPG. As Autoblog points out, it shares a number of characteristics with the Allroad Shooting Brake concept Audi showed off at the Detroit Auto Show a few months ago.

According to Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Member of the Board of Management for Technical Development, “it shows how we might imagine a new model in the future TT family.”

So tell us, are you lusting after yet another E-Tron concept, or hoping Audi goes back to the drawing board on this crossover.
