Audi Urban Concept is a Frankfurt-bound 1+1
10 August 2011
A day after spies caught Audi's latest concept prepping for a photoshoot in Berlin, Germany, the automaker has dropped the first round of details on its Frankfurt-bound prototype.
As suspected, the Audi Urban Concept is another in a string of etron-branded concepts that point towards an electrified future, but with a more city-friendly size and shape.
The body is comprised of carbon fiber reinforced plastic, with offset seating for two, a sliding canopy and a tailgate that serves as the main entry point. Motivation is provided by a pair of electric motors and a lithium-ion battery which Audi insists will deliver "sporty performance."
