Audi A2 making a comeback in 2012, will get electric variant

2003 Audi A2

Last we heard anything about the next-generation Audi A2 it was reported that the model will make a comeback in 2014. According to a new report by AutoCar, the next A2 will make its debut sometime in 2012.

The second-generation of the model will drop its expensive spaceframe construction for a conventional steel monocoque from the new A1. The change is expected to allow Audi to price the A2 competitively against front-wheel-drive models from BMW and Mercedes-Benz.

Audi executives have previously confirmed that the A1 will also be available as an electric-vehicle. No decision has been made whether or not to offer it in the U.S.
