The Audi Urban concept could be going into production as early as 2013. Full coverage inside

We're already heard rumors that Volkswagen was going to build the XL1 concept, so it comes as little surprise Audi is reportedly gearing up to launch a production version of the Urban concept.

According to Car Magazine, the city car will be introduced in 2013 and only 999 units will be available.

The Audi Urban concept featured a lithium-ion battery and two electric motors that developed 20 PS (15 kW / 20 hp) and 47 Nm (35 lb-ft) of torque. This enabled the Urban to accelerate from 0-60 km/h (0-37 mph) in "around six seconds" and hit a top speed of 100 km/h (62 mph). Sadly, the overall range was just 73 km (45 miles) but a rapid charger could replenish the battery in just 20 minutes (1 hour with a 230V household outlet).
