The A1 will use the VW group’s MQB modular transverse engineering package and there will be three different bodystyles: a chunky three-door hatch (revealed in our sketches), a roomier five-door and an open-top model.
Being an Audi, Quattro four-wheel drive will be available – so S1 and Q1 derivatives will have the added traction gains allowed by all-wheel drive. The S1 is said to gain flared wheelarches and a 200bhp turbo engine for genuine pocket rocket thrills.
Another green Audi which might go plug-in by 2011 is the A1. Again, it will probably be the five-door version which gets the nod for packaging reasons.
