While the bodywork might look familiar, the powertrain of the Audi h-tron quattro Concept offers an alternate look at how future Audis might be powered.

Like the related e-tron quattro, the h-tron quattro gives a foretaste of a production enviro-friendly Audi SUV, expected to wear the Q6 name. This time however the plug-in electric powertrain has been swapped over for a hydrogen fuel cell.

Thanks to its advanced powertrain, the h-tron quarrto is able to be refuelled in just four minutes, and capable of a 600 kilometre cruising range. A 110kW fuel cell, backed by a 100kW battery, delivers drive to all four wheels.

The h-tron quattro is the fifth fuel cell concept from Audi and Volkswagen, with advancements in lightweight construction added to Audi’s MLB modular longitudinal platform.

Power from the fuel cell and battery drive a pair of electric motors, a 90kW motor located on the front axle, with a 140kW motor on the rear axle. Thanks to a heat pump for the interior climate control, and a roof mounted solar panel, the h-tron quattro is capable of generating an additional 1000km of range annually.

The use of piloted driving technologies allows the h-tron quattro to build a real-time map of its surroundings, allowing the vehicle to assume driving tasks in stop-and-go traffic at speeds of up to 60km/h. The system, dubbed zFAS, is set to make its production debut in the next generation A8 in 2017.

The interior of the h-tron quattro offers seating for four and 500 litres of luggage space, with the ability to scan luggage and offer suggestions on the best way to load the boot.

Up front, three large OLED displays manage infotainment, Virtual Cockpit, and interior control duties. OLED technology also steps in for the front running lights and tail lights, with LED Matrix lighting used for the main headlights.
