Spy photographers have caught the new Audi City E-Tron concept on camera during a shoot in Berlin.
Resembling an open wheel racer car, the Audi City E-Tron is a two-seater, pod car with the passenger seat positioned directly behind the driver. Running on electric power the car produces no sound while driving. However, it cannot be determined if it a fully electrical vehicle or a hybrid.
The City E-Tron concept has evolved from Volkswagens’s L1 concept that was revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2009. Volkswagen’s idea was to build a fuel-efficient car that produces a mileage of 100 km per litre. The City E-Tron has also been inspired by a sleek version of Gordon Murray’s T.25 City car.
More details are yet to be revealed and it’s expected that the Audi will unveil the City E-Tron concept at the Frankfurt Auto Show next month.
