Audi unveiled 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.
“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,” Audi said in a statement. “The result is a concept car with no unnecessary weight, and one that concentrates on the pure essence of sporty motion.”
The urban concept seats two people low to the ground and displays them with a bunch of controls and materials constructed of ultra-lightweight construction. The driver can adjust the steering wheel and pedals to his own liking. Interestingly, entry to the Audi urban concept is through the tailgate and the roof is designed to be maneuverable and slides to the rear to open.
Power for the Audi urban concept comes from two e-tron electric motors, which get their fuel from a lithium-ion battery. No technical details were released.
The coolest thing about the Audi urban concept? It’s riding on 21-inch wheels.
