2011 Audi A2 Concept

August Horch was a German automobile pioneer that established one of the worlds most prestigious and well-respected car manufacturers.

Cleverly enough, his surname translated in Latin would prove to be a name that would spawn super-mini’s and cross-over SUV’s all around the world. As such, Audi has been consistent with its top of the line car models and car technologies.

Exterior & Interior

The Audi A2 concept is intended to be an all-electric super-mini that would front the company’s current compact MPV models. Measuring in at a compact 3.8 meters in length, the Audi A2 concept will have plenty of room for at least four individuals. The super-mini’s powerful electric-drive system and by-wire technologies are designed for quick and efficient vehicle performance on the road.

Audi designed the A2 concept as the future of metropolitan cars. As such, the innovative body technology and the ultra-light weight construction of the vehicle allow the A2 to weigh in at an astounding 1150 kg or 2, 535 lbs.

As for the A2 concept’s exterior qualities, the opaque glass roof of the super-mini becomes transparent upon pressing a button. The matrix beam headlights of the A2 are another intrinsic feature of this concept car. A group of light-emitting diodes carefully detailed one above the other conveniently produces the low beam and high beam lights. Mirco-reflectors then allow the precise positioning of the light to take place. Moreover, the car’s driver will be able to turn on and off the LED lights independently for various road conditions.

Performance

With a top speed of 93 miles per hours, the A2’s electric engine can deliver up to 116hp and around 119lb-ft of torque. Nonetheless, it is an agile vehicle and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 10 seconds.
