Audi prepares the new A2 with electric propulsion! image

According to Audi CEO Rupert Stadler, the german carmaker is developing a new version of A2 that will fill up the space between the Audi A3 and the latest A1.

“There’s clearly room for another product and another concept between the A3 and A1,” Audi CEO Rupert Stadler said on the sidelines of the auto show.

One of the big differences between the old A2 and what Audi prepares, is that the new A2 will have an electric propulsion besides standard propulsion. Most probably the powertrain will come from e-tron concept that was first unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show.

According to media reports, the A2 will be based on the A1 shown in Geneva. It will have unique styling and an electric powertrain.

The original, slow-selling A2 was produced in Europe from late 1999 to 2005. It was criticized for its styling and less-than-stellar performance. In total, only 176,377 A2s were sold.
