Recently, the experts at Auto Express managed to confirm that the rumors surrounding Audi’s intention to produce a compact car are indeed correct: Audi is currently developing a small, eco-friendly city car. The Audi city car will share the same underpinnings as VW’s newest micro car, the up!, and engineers are currently burning the midnight Öl developing two super fuel-efficient, 600cc twin-turbocharged engines (one diesel, one petrol). Sources say the tiny Audi is expected to average around 95 mpg and produce less than 100g/km of CO2 emissions, earning it a spot in the fuel-efficient micro car competition next the likes of the 56 mpg Ford Ka and the 80 mpg Toyota iQ.
Additional specifications and official pricing will be announced as the Audi city car’s 2012 launch date draws closer.
