Report: Audi A2 due by 2014, will have electric variant

Following the A1, Audi is planning another small car to be slotted between the A1 and the A3 – the car is said to be a reincarnation of the A2 small car.

“There’s clearly room for another product and another concept between the A3 and A1,” Audi CEO Rupert Stadler said at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show last week. In a separate interview, Michael Dick, Audi’s board member for technology, said that the company’s push to add electric-vehicles will play a role in the next-generation A2 “in the near future.”

The A2, which will be based on the A1, is expected to debut by 2014. No decision has been made whether or not to offer it in the U.S. and we wouldn’t hold our breath.
