2010 Audi A1 Overview

Audi’s A1 concept made a big impression at last year's Paris Auto show, slated as competition for other luxury brands’ compact entries, like the BMW 1 Series and the MINI Cooper. This four-door hatchback has been designed as a front-wheel- or all-wheel-drive vehicle, powered by a hybrid four-cylinder powerplant. A turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine is mated to a 20kW electric motor that can run independently of or in concert with the internal combustion engine, depending on user selection. As a standalone, the electric motor can run up to 62 mph and can go over 30 miles before the gasoline engine would automatically kick in to recharge when the battery drops to 20%. Audi anticipates EPA estimates of around 60 mpg.

While the chassis will be partially derived from VW’s European-market Polo, the A1 will take design and structural elements from many VW and Audi platforms, as part of its component module paradigm, which utilizes pieces of many platforms in concert for each model. Two six-speed transmissions should be optional, and prices are estimated to stay in the low to high 20s, depending on options.

A CarGurus contributor since 2008, Michael started his career writing about cars with the SCCA - winning awards during his time as editor of Top End magazine. Since then, his journalistic travels have taken him from NY to Boston to CA, completing a cross-country tour on a restored vintage Suzuki. While his preference is for fine German automobiles - and the extra leg room they so often afford - his first automobile memories center around impromptu Mustang vs. Corvette races down the local highway, in the backseat of his father's latest acquisition.
