The 2020 Audi A2 is a compact MPV supermini car with a five-door, four or five-seat body, manufactured by German manufacturer Audi. The Audi A2 2020 model came as a surprise when it debuted just two years after the original Audi A2 study. Audi has unveiled the all-electric concept car, the Audi A2 Concept, reviewing the expected new Audi A2 production model. Mainly made of aluminum, the carbon-fiber-reinforced components and other construction techniques keep the weight at just 1,150 kg.
The lithium-ion battery placed between the floors contains 24 kWh of useful charge. The electric motor is transversely positioned at the front of the vehicle, the electric motor is delivered through the front wheels and uses a single-speed transmission. The vehicle will also include “shift-by-wire” technology, “brake-wire” and contactless “ride-on-wire” technology and LED matrix technology for headlights and taillights.
2020 Audi A2 Design
The prevailing Audi A2 design and engineering theme was summarized by the then UK Product Manager in an interview after the car won the design award in 2001 as “create a small Audi, not a cheap Audi”, and is a creative summary claimed to be “Transported four people from Stuttgart to Milan on one tank of gas”. The A2 is built with a significant amount of aluminum and aluminum alloys making it significantly smaller than similar-sized cars. It’ss reduced weight helps it use much less fuel than vehicles using traditional steel monocoque.
Under certain circumstances, consumption for the 1.2 TDI maybe just over 2 liters per 100 kilometers (140 mpg-imp; 120 mpg-US). This version of the Audi A2 won the Nordic Eco Run with fuel economy in 2003, with fuel consumption of 2.62 L / 100 km (107.8 mpg-imp; 89.8 mpg-US). Even normal gasoline-powered versions can withstand 5 l / 100 km (56.5 mpg-imp; 47.0 mpg-US). The A2 was also notable for being the first Audi model since the 1970s to be the Audi 50 (Type 86) and Audi 100 (Type 43) not offered with its Quattro all-wheel-drive trademark. A2 has a drag coefficient of between 0.25 and 0.29, depending on the particular version.
2020 Audi A2 Interior
The A2 has a large interior space for exterior dimensions, including a boot with 390 liters of space when the rear seats are set up. This is significantly larger than the luggage space of the next model in the Audi A3 range. Due to its “sandwich” construction, which is similar to that of Renault Espace or Mercedes A-Class, the floor plan has an upper and lower part. The space in the middle is used to house various components, such as the fuel tank and engine electronics.
The rear-door passengers also benefit as legroom enters this sandwich, creating a comfortable seating position even for tall rear-seat passengers. This is in direct contrast to the comfort available on the A-Class rear bench. To improve the weight distribution of the vehicle, its battery is located in the boot, below the floor.
2020 Audi A2 Engine
The Audi A2 1.2 TDI had the lowest towing ratio of any car in the world at the time of its launch. It was also one of the most economical and least polluting, with only 81 g/km (German D4 emission standard) to 86 g/km. The Audi A2 3L reuses the engine and gearbox developed for the equally efficient Volkswagen Lupo 1.2 TDI 3L. The production of Audi 2020 A2 has been announced to be built on the MQB platform and will feature 1.4-liter and 1.8-liter petrol engines (120 bhp – 178 bhp), 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter diesel types and an electric/hybrid version.
2020 Audi A2 Safety
During the safety testing, the Audi A2 received a five-star rating of five, which means a good level of safety. The safety of adults (drivers and passengers) of the 2020 Audi A2 has rated four stars, and for the protection of pedestrians, the Audi A2 received one star.
