According to reports, Audi’s quirky A2 Concept will not make be making it to the production line.

Originally seen as a direct competitor to BMW’s i3, the 1,150 kg electric A2 uses a floor-mounted lithium-ion battery pack to feed its motor, which sends a maximum output of 85 kW (116 hp) and 70 Nm and to the front wheels. On the road, that translates to a 150 km/h top speed and 200 kilometre range.

According to Autocar magazine, Audi sources confirmed that “lessons learnt from the new A2 project” would benefit future vehicles by the Ingolstadt giant, but that it had no plans for a mass-produced aluminium-framed model.
