New Audi A2 Concept

Sketches of a new Audi A2 concept set to be unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show have been released by Audi.

The striking concept is supposedly “another glimpse into the future of electric mobility”, according to Audi.

The A2 introduces a new LED technology known as a matrix beam; LEDs and micro reflectors generate a non-glaring beam of light.

The design is similar to that, in shape, to the Audi A1, however this is much more futuristic and striking.

Its wider at the bottom than previous small Audis, in an attempt to make a small electric car look not just interesting, but sporty too.

If the car does go on sale, it won’t be for a few years, and nor will it be as striking as the sketches suggest.

    Electric cars are a serious waste of resources and rely on regular fossil fuel power generation [which takes time ] and other than being a sop to Green Hysterics are a non event and will remain so until someone invents a power system that can beat the present gasoline or diesel systems. Biofuel is a travesty of Green bias propaganda over economics and with that and wind power [another scam] we are heading to unneeded rising prices all as a result of the Myth that is Global Warming/Climate Change, Disruption. We laugh at the notion of Dragons, Witches, Fool’s Gold, Tulip Trading, Religious Indulgences and yet the whole CO2/Carbon Footprint taxes/scams are exactly the same and with the same blind ignorance as “proof”.

      What’s needed is for something like hydrogen fuel cells to become more available, and more practical.
