Audi cars are well known for solid performance, but not necessarily for futuristic or innovative design. That’s changed with the all-new Urban Concept. A fully electric car scheduled for sale in the UK in 2013. It features a go-kart style design, lithium battery powered engines, and a single speed transmission with top speeds of 60 mph.

The obvious target is European city dwellers. With incredibly high gas prices in Europe, I’m sure the Urban Concept with its battery powered engines and low ticket price will be very popular. The Urban Concept will cost £8,800 or $13,600.

My husband works long distance from a company located four hours from our house. It’s just close enough not to justify an expensive flight, and because I volunteer for the organization, I frequently ride along with him. The problem is that the trips are often scheduled during working hours. There are quite a few things I can do on a smartphone, but sometimes I run into a problem that can only be solved on my laptop.

And that’s why I’m going to ask for an Audi this Christmas. Great reason, right?! A girl can always dream.

The 2012 A6 comes with it’s own wireless network. Add that to a list of unbelievable features like driver’s assist and a supercharged v6, and this baby will make you feel like a million dollars for a mere starting price of $40K.

Audi, as part of an ad campaign for the 2012 Audi A6, has created a driver frustration index that uses everything from Twitter updates about traffic to the current temperature to spit out a score (lowest means the least frustration) for your morning or afternoon commute. Based on today’s scores, I hope you live in Portland, Seattle, Tampa Bay, or Orlando. Because if you live in Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, or New York, you’re probably really frustrated right now.

You can find the index on the website Roadintel.com.

Audi released details of its Urban Concept electric car that will debut at the 2011 Frankfort Auto Show in September. Audi aims to combine “elements of a racing car, a fun car and an urban car into one radical new concept.” The car seats a driver and passenger, and features a lithium-ion battery, carbon fiber reinforced polymer construction and 21-inch wheels. For more information, see the Audi USA news release.

For all you city drivers, would you drive this around town?
