Audi reportedly scrapped plans for an A2 e-tron, but development work continues on a reimaged model.

According to Auto Express, Audi has substantially revised the car so it is larger and more practical than the concept that debuted at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. It will likely ride on the MQB platform and have a five-seat interior with generous legroom.

While the model was originally envisioned to be powered by a 114 hp (85 kW / 116 PS) electric motor, the production variant should be available with a 1.4-liter TFSI with 120 hp (89 kW / 122 PS) and a 1.8-liter TSFI with 178 hp (133 kW / 180 PS). We can also expect 1.6- and 2.0-liter TDIs as well as a plug-in hybrid variant which has a 1.4 liter TFSI engine and an electric motor for a combined output of 234 hp (175 kW / 238 PS).
