At first time we saw Audi A2 Concept 4 years ago – at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 2011. It was going to become a competitive 4-seats electric vehicle. A couple of years have past and now, if the rumors are true, the automaker decided to revive its small but sporty and elegant-looking car from the dormancy. The model shouldn’t be very pricy being a compact one, so it may cause a great market demand.
The car will be very lightweight because of the usage of carbon fiber reinforced polymer instead of the aluminum and steel. It will be powered by a lithium-ion battery pack with the capacity of 31 kilowatts per hour. Its electric motor will be completed with a single-speed gearbox. According to the rumors, its maximum speed won’t be higher than 93 mph. It will take about 4 hours to be fully-charged through a standard 230 V charging station and about 1.5 hours through a 400 V charging station.
The first thing that strikes the eye when you are looking at the side of the car is a lack of door handles. In fact, they are still there but hidden – they slide out from a niche when needed. This feature gives Audi A2 2016 a futuristic and cosmic look. The redesigned headlights and LED day running lights that strength along the whole side of a carbody are two the most styling details of the exterior design. The latter ones are dynamic and colored (in a form of light impulses). However, a big grill of unusual form with a chromed firm logo also attracts people’s attention.
The car has enough room for 4 people accommodation. Its dimensions are 12.47×5.54×4.89 feet. It also features a two-level load area that is large enough to carry an ordinary family travelling stuff.
What car can boast of a built-in Wi-Fi network? The answer is Audi A2 2016. So, the connection to the Internet has never been so easy in the trip. A 7-inch touchscreen display and 2 additional ones are at driver’s hand. Besides, the vehicle features a so-called semi-autonomous driving system, i.e. an advanced cruise control. Furthermore, the owner can unlock the doors via special gestures due to the built-in sensors.
Price and Time of Release
We are pretty sure that Audi A2 2016 has moved from the status of just a concept to the product being under development. Though, it’s everything we know about its upcoming availability, including the exact pricing (while the analytics say it will be approximately 50,000 dollars).
