Audi charges up for electric car

Audi electric fq

Audi has long been rumoured to be developing an electric car and many thought that it would be based on the A1 concept that Audi recently showed off at the Paris Motor Show. Audi board member Peter Schwarzenbauer has said that the electric car is coming, but it will be based on the Volkswagen up! platform that’s destined to carry the Lupo badge when it goes into production.

Audi will need to work quickly if it’s going to catch BMW, its natural rival, which has already begun production of an electric version of the MINI Cooper. For the Audi/VW vehicle, a battery pack will be mounted at the rear of the Lupo’s platform, though there is still no indication of what type of battery will be used. Further details should be revealed soon.
