Audi plans 282 mpg city car image

The German based automaker Audi is planning to develop a 282 mpg city car which should be based on the same platform of the current Audi A1.

Audi has big plans for its future models and in a world crushed more and more by the economic crisis, the carmaker wants to sell more cars. After writing about the plans to develop an ultra lightweight Audi TT, the German based automaker is entering our news once again, this time with a rumor which is saying that the company is currently planning to produce a 282 mpg city car.

Rumors are saying that the upcoming 282 mpg city car will be based on the same platform as the Audi A1 and the model is known internally as the “1.0-liter car”. The small vehicle in question will hit the market with four seats and it should pack all the “normal” things, including a climate control, despite its impressive 282 mpg. A new type of injection-moulded carbon fiber is expected to be used for some components, which will help the model save some weight and keep the production costs low. The Audi 282 mpg city car will probably hit the market over the following three years.
