Audi A2: Will be electric only, to fight against BMW MegaCity

Audi A2

The Audi A2 will be released in 2012 and will arrive as electric only and with one main target, the BMW MegaCity.

The second-generation model will drop the pricey spaceframe construction of the original A2 for a conventional steel monocoque borrowed from the A1.

The new A2’s styling remains under wraps, but Audi has hinted that it will follow the template of its predecessor, with a tall one-box design and relatively narrow tracks.

Audi chairman Rupert Stadler has said electric drive is a priority.
