Audi will not unveil the A1 in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but in October at the Tokyo Motor Show, alongside with a hybrid version. The basic version of the A1 will be priced at 20.000 euro.

Audi wants to build between 80.000 and 100.000 units a year and take all the customers of Mini.

The A1 will not be a lot smaller than the A3, but it will consistently cheaper with prices ranging between $16,000-20,000. The cost reduction can be achieved due to the use of the VW Golf IV platform with a semi-rigid rear axle, a lot cheaper than the multi-link. In addition, the body will be made from steel, not aluminum, as used in the A2, further reducing production costs.
