Audi Crosslane Coupe Concept

BLOOMBERG

Audi CEO Rupert Stadler poses alongside the new Audi Crosslane Coupe Concept, a model that hints at a smaller crossover in the luxury brand's lineup. Under the hood of the concept is a plug-in hybrid powertrain that combines a turbocharged, three-cylinder 1.5-liter engine with a generator and an electric motor. Audi says the powertrain delivers 214 mpg in the concept, which weighs 3,064 pounds and claims a top speed of 113 mph.
