The Audi A1 e-tron has won the e-car-award 2010.
The Audi A1 e-tron has won the “e-car-award,” presented this year for the very first time. The innovative Mega City Vehicle (MCV) with an electric motor was selected the winner from a field of 24 models, with 36,212 readers of Germany’s “AUTO TEST” trade publication casting votes. The Audi e-tron show car, which was shown at the beginning of the year at the Detroit Motor Show, took fourth place.
The awards ceremony was held on June 3 during “the electric avenue” trade show for electromobility in Friedrichshafen on Lake Constance. The compact concept car, which celebrated its premiere during the Geneva Motor Show, offers emission-free transport in city traffic along with a driving range that exceeds 50 kilometers. Thanks to peak power output of 75 kW (102 hp), the A1 e-tron also delivers a great driving experience. A compact combustion engine recharges the battery when it runs out of power.
