At the 2014 Detroit auto show, Audi unveiled its Allroad Shooting Brake concept, using a plug-in hybrid system for an all-wheel-drive light offroader.
Unlike the hard-top e-tron, which was purely electric, this model is a plug-in hybrid that uses a lithium ion battery plus a pair of 88bhp electric motors mounted to the front axle.
You may have to do without a roof, but the e-tron Spyder makes up for this omission with great looks, blistering pace and extraordinary economy.
Remember that Audi e-tron we showed you last year? Y'know, the electric R8? Audi's only gone and lopped the roof off to make a spyder version. Somebody pass us a Tena Lady.
