Audi Urban ConceptSun, 28 Aug 2011 00:00:00 -0700
Audi has released additional photos and information on the Urban Concept, which is set to make its debut at the Frankfurt motor show in September.
As we previously reported, the new car – touted by Audi as a 'new kind of concept car' that combines aspects of a racing car as well as a fun-to-drive urban vehicle – is a diminutive two-passenger vehicle powered by two e-tron electric motors. Measuring in at 3200mm long, 1700mm wide and 1200mm tall, the Urban Concept is expected to weigh less than 500kg, thanks largely to a cockpit made from CFRP.
Audi will show a Sportback model as well as an open-top Spyder variant at the IAA. The Spyder is said to feature a low, continuous window area and doors that open diagonally to the top.
Stay tuned for more on the Urban Concept as we report live from Frankfurt in a few weeks' time.
