2011 Frankfurt Motor Show Preview: Audi Urban Concept Officially Revealed, In Sketches Form

by Sebastian Bivin

It’s knew that Audi is preparing a new concept for this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show but nobody knew what to expect. This until now, when the German manufacturer revealed the Audi Urban Concept, a pretty interesting vehicle today that doesn’t really fit under any conventional categories. Known as the Audi urban concept, the 1+1 seater is an ultra-light vehicle being studied for congested urban areas. This car combines elements of a racing car, a fun car and an urban car into one radical new concept.

“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. “

While the exterior looks dynamic and emotional, the interior has been designed to accommodate two people, again with everything from controls to materials obeying the principles of light-weight construction. The two seats are slightly staggered, while the driver can adjust the steering wheel and the pedals. A sliding canopy that forms part of the body opens up to allow the driver and one passenger to enter the car. 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 and is powered by two e-tron electric motors that draw energy from a lithium-ion battery.

More details on the Urban Concept are to be released closer to the Frankfurt Motor Show.
