Audi has revealed its new Crosslane Coupe concept at this week's Paris Motor Show, offering what could be a look at its next-generation SUV styling.

Sharing a few design cues with Volkswagen's Cross Coupe concept, the Crosslane gets its own distinctly Audi front and rear, bulbous wheel guards and a host of new technologies.

The concept is built on a new 'Multimaterial Space Frame' of aluminium, along with carbon- and glass-fibre reinforced polymers.

The Crosslane is a plug-in dual-mode hybrid, and while it packs a set of heavy lithium-ion batteries, the lightweight construction technologies mean the concept weighs a relatively slim 1390kg.

The hybrid powertrain includes a three-cylinder turbocharged 1.5 litre TFSI petrol engine, producing 95kW and 200Nm of torque.

The engine is paired with an electric motor producing 50kW and 210Nm, while a second 85kW/250Nm electric motor provides additional traction.

Audi promises a combined system output of 130kW, making for a 0-100km/h time of 6.8 seconds. In electric-only mode, the sprint is over in 9.8 secons.

An all-electric driving range of 85km is claimed, and, depending on the mode, Audi says the Crosslane will deliver fuel consumption figures as low as 1.1 l/100km.

With a 2+2 seating layout, the Crosslane rides on a 2.56m wheelbase, and measures 4.21m long, 1.88mm wide and 1.51m tall.

Audi is yet to confirm production plans for the Crosslane, although reports in recent weeks suggest it could preview a new Q2, keeping its three-door body and slotting in between the A3 hatch and the Q3 SUV.
