Sparky future for Audi’s A2 Concept?

Audi’s A2 Concept is electric and compact with room for four.

AUDI is aiming to be the brightest spark when it unveils its electric-only A2 Concept.
The four-seat design is the German carmaker’s vision of electric motoring.
Being unveiled, with a host of other concepts, at this month’s Frankfurt Motor Show, the A2 concept is compact at 3.80 metres long, 1.69 metres wide and 1.49 metres high.
The car is designed to make an impression — its dark glass roof switches to transparent at the touch of a button.
Headlights are LED and are the next generation, known as matrix beam. Intelligent tail lights adapt their illumination to the conditions. The rear fog light, produced by laser diodes, is seen as a beam of light in fog and projects a red triangle onto the road as a warning.
Integrated sensors detect the driver approaching and unlock the doors via gesture control. While driving, a dynamic light functions as a continuous side marker. If the car’s turn indicator is activated, light impulses run throughout the entire band of light. In addition, a red bar of light flows forward from the tail lights when braking and demonstrates the strength of braking to alert other road users.
The dynamic light is also located in the cockpit area of the show car, structured in two separate arches. Like the entire interior, the dash panel has a light and clean look and intuitive controls. The driver manages many important features via touch-control areas on the inside of the steering wheel. Two additional control surfaces fold up at the driver’s right when starting the vehicle. An open profile serves as the steering column; a seven-inch display and two secondary displays are located at its end.
The Audi A2 concept has a flat interior floorboard. The centre console is attached to the driver’s seat; the rear console extends forward between the two rear seats. The four individual seats add lightness, and there is storage space under the fold-up seat cushions. There is room between the rear seats for a city bicycle with its front wheel removed.
