Car Tech Video: Tokyo auto show: Audi A1 Metroproject concept

1:12 /

Electric motor in back, and an Audi smartphone in your pocket.

^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:06 >> Little cars are big and no I don't mean the Audi A3. I mean small like this Audi A1, Metroproject Concept. It's a concept for a little tiny Audi that really seems to borrow some DNA from the Mini although I doubt they would admit that. The prominent aluminum arches over the side glass is definitely a signature. Power would come from a 1.4 liter TSFI supercharged turbo FOR 150 horsepower out through an S-tronic dual clutch manu-matic. But check this out in the back a forty-ish horsepower electric motor under glass; that could add another 150 more pounds of torque. Another odd twist-Audi's own Smartphone thing. It's a phone, a GPS personal Nebula [assumed spelling]; it's a media player and a sophisticated remote and status reader for the car. Production for the car at least starts at 2,009 and could come to the US in 2010. ^M00:01:05 [ Music ] ^M00:01:12
