Audi Urban Concept Car unveiled at IAA 2011

The IAA 2011 Motor Show is opening for the public on September 15. The IAA 2011 announcements are already coming in as press has already access to the IAA 2011 show floor. Audi shows off a weird concept car dubbed Audi Urban that is supposed to show the future of city cars. The Audi urban concept is a 1+1-seat, ultra-light car for congested urban spaces. The Audi urban concept combines elements of a racing car, a fun car and an urban car into one radical new concept. In addition to a Sportback model, Audi is also presenting a Spyder variant.

The Audi urban concept is not based on any previous model - its development is solely oriented on the strict principles of lightweight construction, efficiency and reduction. The result is a concept car with no unnecessary weight, and one that concentrates on the pure essence of sporty motion.

The wheels of the Audi urban are free- standing, their surrounding protective plates feature blinking strips of LED lights. The highly concentrated look of the technical study, with its forward-urging lines, is dynamic and emotional - it lends Audi's design language a completely new impetus.

On board there is room for two people, their position slightly staggered and at a sporty, low level. All controls and materials are subject to the dictates of ultra-lightweight construction in order to ensure that the sensory experience they convey is unique and compelling. The driver can adjust the steering wheel and pedals to his own body measurements. Characteristic features of the Spyder include its low, continuous window area and its doors that open diagonally to the top. The technology in the Audi urban concept reflects the full capabilities of the brand, especially when it comes to ultra- lightweight construction. The cockpit consists of carbon fiber- reinforced polymer, which integrates the undercarriage of both seats. The Audi urban concept rolls on wheels with a 21-inch diameter. 

Two e-tron electric motors provide the propulsion - providing the ultra-light Audi urban concept with the ability to accelerate powerfully. A lithium-ion battery supplies the energy - ideal for extended city tours.
