We have the goods on the Audi A1 e-tron concept, scheduled to appear with the normal A1 in Geneva.

Audi will be introducing the Audi A1 e-tron concept at the Geneva Motor Show.  The car has an all-electric range of 50 kilometers (31 miles), and is meant for use in large, urban environments.

The concept will use a 75-kiloWatt battery-powered motor, coupled with a range-extending rotary engine to help recharge the battery.  The single-rotor engine can allow the car to be driven an additional 200 km (124 mi).  Audi estimates fuel consumption to average 1.9 liters per 100 km (123.8 mpg-US / 148.7 mpg-imp).  Emissions could be as low as 45 grams per kilometer.

The Audi A1 e-tron concept will debut alongside the Audi A1 tomorrow in Geneva.

No photos of the A1 e-tron concept have been released yet.  Audi A1 design sketch pictured.
