Audi A2 will be electric-only, will compete with BMW Megacity

2003 Audi A2

Earlier this month, we heard reports that the next-generation Audi A2 will launch in 2012 instead of the 2014 as previously scheduled. Apparently, Audi is working hard to push forward the launch of the A1 as soon as possible so it can have a competitor to the BMW Megacity vehicle, which will go on sale in 2013.

According to sources, in order to compete with the BMW Megacity, the next-generation Audi A2 will be all-electric. The second-generation A2 will use a conventional steel monocoque from the new A1 and will drop its expensive spaceframe construction to keep cost down.

While styling on the next-generation A2 is being kept a big secret, it is known that Audi will keep its one-box design like the predecessor.
