Audi A2 concept won’t be produced image

Audi won’t put the A2 concept into production but the technology used on the model will be implemented onto upcoming vehicles.

The Audi A2 concept has been inspired from the old aluminum spaceframe used on the A2 and the model should have entered production in 2015, but that won’t happen anymore because the German based automaker doesn’t feel it can win anything from it. The new Audi A2 should have hit the market as an electric vehicle and as a plug-in hybrid and the model should have been a direct rival for the BMW i3. The technology used in the concept car will be implemented onto upcoming models.

As a quick reminder, the Audi A2 concept has been presented back in 2011 and the model was weighing just 1,150 kg (2,530 lbs). The A2 concept was powered by an electric motor which was generating a total output of 116 HP (85 kW) and 270 Nm of torque (199 lb-ft), which allowed the model to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 9.3 seconds before reaching a top speed of 150 km/h (93 mph). The maximum range of the A2 concept was 200 km (124 miles).
