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).
