The A2 electric vehicle features a construction made of aluminum and CFRP and is powered by a 116 PS/85 kW and 270 Nm (199 lb-ft) electric motor.
Audi has released full details on the A2 Concept, an electric revival of the previously discontinued A2 model.
Weighing just 1,150 kg (2530 lbs), the A2 Concept EV features an Audi Space Frame (ASF) construction. It is made of aluminum with add-on parts in Carbon Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (CFRP).
Current is supplied by a lithium ion battery which drives the 116 PS/85 kW and 270 Nm (199 lb-ft) electric motor. Continuous power, though, is rated at 80 PS (59 kW) and 160 Nm (118 lb-ft). Transmission is a single speed gearbox which converts power to drive the front wheels.
Those figures provide for a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of 9.3 seconds and a top speed (electronically-governed) of 150 km/h (93 mph).
The lithium-ion battery pack is sandwiched in the floor of the vehicle to maximize space and allows for a range of 200 km (124 miles).
The Audi A2 Concept is a drive-by-wire vehicle with the transmission, brake and steering systems all functioning by that contact-less technology.
Other new technologies on the A2 Concept include the dynamic lighting across the exterior of the car as well as inside the cabin. The head- and taillights also feature LED matrix technology.
