Audi Reveals A2 Concept

2011 Frankfurt Auto Show

Audi reveals the A2 Concept, which will be showcased next week at the Frankfurt Auto Show.

Audi has just revealed its new electric-only A2 concept just ahead of its official live debut at this year's Frankfurt Auto Show where it will be joining the urban concept coupe and spyder EVs. Described in the official press release as a "premium-standard space concept," the A2 is meant to be a further example of how the German luxury brand is pursuing future electric mobility. Just 12.47 ft. long, 5.54 ft. wide, and 4.89 ft. high, Audi says it offers plenty of room for four people and "makes an elegant, powerful and sporty impression on the street."

With features like a dark glass roof that switches to transparency with the simple push of a button and the next phase of LED headlight technology, the A2 concept is clearly showing off the latest developments that will most likely find their way to production in the near future. This new LED technology, known as matrix beam, is basically a "package of LEDs and micro reflectors that generate a high-resolution and non-glaring high-beam light. Intelligent tail lights adapt their illumination to the visibility conditions. The rear fog light, produced by laser diodes, is seen as a beam of light in fog and projects a red triangle onto the road as a warning."

This dynamic light is also in the interior, specifically on the dash panel where the driver can manage numerous features via touch-controlled areas on the inside of the steering wheel. The design of the interior is also quite interesting, with the center console being attached to the driver's seat and the rear console extends forward between the two rear seats. There's also storage space under the fold-up seat cushions as well as room for a city bicycle (if its front wheel is removed). We'll have more details and official next week at Frankfurt.
