A small car (the E1) has also been included in this new range that will be available with a totally changed body design and with the platform that has been demonstrated in the Up concept of Volkswagan.
The E2, in this lineup, is an Audi version for SportBlue VW roadster which has debuted at the Detroit Auto Show.
The repost also narrates that the revival of Audi small car the A2 has also been included in this plan. Similarly, Audi is also planning for the Roadjet wagon eco-friendly model.
Aside from electric and hybrid drivetrains, various other small gasoline and diesel engines have been called for that plan.
