The Metroproject Quattro's hybrid powertrain consists of a 1.4-liter TFSI gasoline direct-injection engine rated at 150 horsepower and driving the front wheels, teamed with a 41-hp electric motor in the rear. An S-tronic dual-clutch gearbox is mated to the drivetrain.
The lithium-ion battery pack has plug-in capability, providing a driving range of 62 miles in pure electric mode. Fuel economy is further enhanced through regenerative braking and an engine stop/start system.
Audi claims 0-60 miles per hour acceleration in less than 7.8 seconds and a top speed of 124 mph. On premium fuel, the car returns fuel economy of 48 miles per gallon.
