According to UK mag Autocar, sources within Audi have suggested that the future model will be hinted at with a concept known as the ‘Crosslane Coupe’.
The mooted ‘Coupe’ nameplate suggests the concept may employ a three-door bodystyle, whereas the production Q2 is expected to use a more conventional five-door layout, with an X6-like coupe roofline.
A range-extended hybrid drivetrain is also expected for the concept, using a 1.5 litre three cylinder combustion engine and 87kW electric motor, with a reported 128km all-electric range.
The production Q2 is expected to launch with more conventional petrol and diesel Volkswagen Group engines, but the concept’s hybrid drivetrain could be a firm sign of what’s to come for future small Volkswagen Group models.
Platform wise, the Crosslane Coupe is expected to use a version of Volkswagen's MQB architecture.
A production Q2 is not expected until 2015, but keep an eye on TMR for any updates from the Audi stand in Paris.
