When Audi unveiled the Urban Concept at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, we honestly believed it was a huge waste of time because there was no chance Audi would ever actually put it into production. Turns out, we were absolutely wrong.

Audi has just announced that the Urban Concept will indeed go into production and that it will be limited to only 999 units. Sales will begin in 2013 at a starting price of £8,800 or about $14,000 at the current exchange rates.

The production version will feature two electric motors powered by a lithium ion battery and a single-speed transmission. The model will be built using carbon-fiber reinforced plastic and will weigh only 1,058 lbs. This will help the car sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 6 seconds and hit a top speed of 60 mph. It is also expected to see an average range of 30 miles.

This will, by far, be the strangest production Audi produced as of now.

The wheels of this E-tron is really cool! smiley I also love the unique platform of it, but I hope they also include some pictures of its interior. Anyway, it is only too sad to know that they would never put it on production.

You are right GoldenBullet, that this Urban E-tron is only for Frankfurt Motor Show. However, I am kept on hoping that they would really put this one on the markets even though the platform of this one is truly strange.

I wonder if they really put this one on the market. Sure, they will maybe unveil this one at Frankfurt Motor Show, but it seems that it is only for that show, and after that we can no longer see this one.
