The first images of Audi’s crossover concept have finally leaked out.

Believed to preview the next-generation Audi TT (set to go on sale in late 2014), this concept bears the e-tron badge, which means it’s a hybrid (most likely of the plug-in variety).

As of right now, we have no details on this crossover concept.

Autocar describes the crossover concept as follows:

“The exterior of this concept looks similar in appearance to the TT, while its raised ride height and the addition of plastic cladding, larger wheels, a roof rack and Audi’s prominent front grille have lead reports to suggest this could be a new crossover model. A rear spoiler and dual exhausts can also be seen.”

“Inside, this concept closely echoes the recently-revealed Audi TT interior, with its use of the new single MMI screen and virtual dashboard, as well as the flat-bottomed steering wheel and stylised air vents. A touch-sensitive infotainment controller can also be seen in the centre console.”

Another Audi concept… and yet no car to show for all those concepts they have been showing. Audi has absolutely no credibility.

It wouldn’t surprise me if the A3 e-tron gets cancelled or “will get into production in 2015 (maybe)”.

Was there some group of potential TT Buyers clamoring for a crossover version? Meh.

If AMC still made the Pacer, it might look like this Audi E-tron. With a big grill and the appearance of dual exhaust pipes, it does not look like this was designed as any kind of EV.

Audi have advertised the e-tron on TV in the UK as being available this year. I’m not saying they still won’t back out of that but making such a public commitment on the airwaves probably does indicate it’s more likely to happen than not.
