Electric-only and with for four, it’s the Audi A2

Audi will offer to next week’s Frankfurt show yet another peek the future of EV mobility when it the A2 Concept.

As predicted months the first pictures of Audi’s A2 car confirm the designers have true to the profile of the much-loved

The A2 concept, which will its debut at next week’s Motor Show, will make it into production in as either a full electric car or a series hybrid.

The four-seat car is the pride of Wolfgang Egger’s team and has been penciled by Q5 and A8 Chris Winkelmann, to be a logical interpretation of the original A2 from

At 3.8 metres long, it’s shorter than the original, is so strong in European second-hand car that sellers feel to demand the new-car price, though it was a sales flop and its life was curtailed prematurely in

Part of the reason for its sustained was fuel economy, with the 1.2-litre petrol versions 3.0-litre/100km economy, though the 1.4-litre petrol versions are most prized as used Another is ease of parking, it was only 1.52 metres while its high roofline it easy to get in and out of, particularly for women in and skirts. For all that, though, the new car has 17mm wider, to 1.69 and is 63mm lower as well.

The mistake we made with the A2 was that we were four or years too early with it, a Audi source admitted.

It was high tech, with a aluminium space frame like we use in the R8, but we tried to pull the towards paying for a premium car when it wasn’t quite for it.

It’s different today, are other competitors out there who proven you can charge for this of car, like MINI, for and we will keep the next A2 as a high-tech machine so people what they will pay

One of the things they will pay for is technology, and the feeling inside is that the A2 could grow its own family of electric cars off this custom-made architecture.

Audi is clearly dabbling a range of electric prototypes from the fully electric R8 the range-extender A1 e-tron and the Q5 Hybrid, the A2 is to be its premium city car and its first production electric vehicle. Audi has told us the car is electrically specification details have not yet announced.

The concept car’s basic is likely to carry over production, according to senior sources, though a lot of the tricky detailing will need to for a later model.

That is lead by a next-generation LED system, Matrix Technology, that higher-tech reflectors that claim produce a non-glaring of light. The tail lights are active, so they intensify or their light levels on the ambient conditions. They are of producing a sufficiently high-intensity to double as fog lights.

There is a body-length light, which serves to highlight the A2 Concept’s line, and it acts as a full-length indicator and can also flow of light forward to show the level of braking intensity different situations.

The A2 also scores a clever glass roof that transparent at the push of a button. there is a fully flat not unlike the Mercedes-Benz A- or B-Class, and for four adults, with a console and storage space the rear seats.

There’s a city-bike option, where a city bike can slot in the rear seats (once removed its front wheel). also a dual-level luggage which can effectively double the space for smaller items but can be folded to the side for larger

Most of the car’s systems are by three touch-screen panels, via a main display and two secondary that flank it.
