There’s a lot of spyshots coming in of new cars or new car models, but we rarely get to see stuff like this on the streets.
An Audi City E-Tron Concept was spotted on the streets of Berlin and, lucky for us, this happened just as a professional photographer was setting up his gear in the area.
The City part is an assumption, mostly given how this sort of little vehicle doesn’t really seem very appropriate with in a high speed situation like a motorway, let alone the infamous Autobahn.
Let’s not focus on the lesser parts of the new Audi City E-Tron Concept and grant a good mention to the finest of its qualities.
First of all, the diminutive size should make it very easy to thread through traffic, park and meet with the general issues of a daily commute.
The same small car advantage comes with the added lightness of the Audi City E-Tron Concept. At the added results you’ll find incredible fuel economy, something so of the moment it’s unbelievable.
Though on the front of fuel economy we may find that the drivetrain assembly bears an incredible importance, especially since people who spotted the car just as these spyshots were being taken claim it was a completely silent runner.
That probably means that the Audi City E-Tron Concept we see here and was generally spotted in Berlin shares the diesel hybrid powertrain that Audi’s parent company, VW, developed for the XL1 Concept.
You can imagine the sort of figures it can produce, the horsepower, acceleration, performance and the rest in this section aren’t going to be impressive but the fuel sipping is critical.
Since the VW XL1 Concept could do up to 235 mpg on the US Cycle, we should expect this Audi City E-Tron Concept to be similar or in the 200 mpg range.
Another thing this small and cutesy Audi borrows from the XL1 Concept is the seat layout which has room for two, despite them not being exactly side by side.
Audi or VW weren’t exactly coming out with all the press releases in the world to introduce us to this concept but we expect it to be not very far from production.
On this front however, the Frankfurt Motor Show which starts next month could give us a few extra details as we expect the Audi City E-Tron Concept to be there.
