In the aggressive world of automotives, it’s important to always stay on the cutting edge. And with traffic and congestion problems creeping up the world’s roads, “cutting edge” may very well have its own double-entendre. 
 
Audi has recently conjured up a completely new lightweight, super compact 1+1 prototype - the Audi Urban Concept. This concept vehicle is the first of its kind, not modeled or reinvented from any model before it, and is developed on the principles of lightweight construction, efficiency and reduction. Less is positively more; the result is a frill-free sporty two-seater powered by two e-tron electric motors with a lithium-ion battery as source.
