Audi has released the first official pictures of the Audi A2 Concept. Nice car!
One of the most innovative Audis in history is being reborn at the Frankfurt Motor Show. These are the first official images of the new A2 – a groundbreaking all-electric small car set to rival the BMW i3.
This concept gives the clearest idea yet of how a replacement for the original A2 will look. And as you can see, it’s a clever blend of the original A2 and the A1.
Nods to the past include a classic A2-style curved roofline and extended arches. Plus, a pronounced wheel-at-each-corner stance, with minimal overhangs, gives a big clue to the impressive space the car will offer inside.
The A2 is slightly shorter and taller than the A1, and about as wide – it measures 3.8 metres long by 1.7m wide and 1.5m high. As in the Volkswagen up!, a long wheelbase means plenty of room. The show car gets a luxurious four-seater layout with a flexible set-up that can swallow a bicycle. Expect the production version to offer seating for five.
Audi has confirmed that the concept will feature an all-electric powertrain, but is holding back the precise details until it debuts at Frankfurt. When it hits dealers, though, expect a wider range of engine options than before.
