Audi recently unveiled its newest concept car at the Paris Motor Show. The vehicle dubbed Crosslane unites the amenities of three different car types under just one hood, being a hybrid between a crossover, convertible and coupé; it is a two-seater and 2+2, in addition to its small but efficient gasoline engine it features two electric motors. The car’s structure makes use of advanced materials, such as aluminium, carbon fiber-reinforced polymer and fiberglass-reinforced polymer, resulting in a reasonable total weight of 3,064 pounds.
The Crosslane is powered by a 1.5 -liter-3cylinder engine and two supporting electric motors, of which the smaller one primarely acts as a starter and alternator. 176 horsepower lead to a top speed of 113 miles per hour and a 0-62 sprint of 8.6 seconds. The electric motor is equipped with a 17.4-kWh lithium-ion battery, making it possible to travel around 53-miles solely on battery-power.
