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.

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?
