The Audi A1, which will come in coupe and speedster forms as pictured above, is predicted to make its first public appearance at the Tokyo Motor Show later this year. Furthermore, it is expected that the model on display will be a hybrid. According to Auto Motor und Sport, Audi wants to move between 80,000 and 100,000 A1's per year, with the base A1 available for under 20,000 euros. The purpose of the A1 is to steal customers from BMW's MINI by being sportier and more masculine. The quote from Michael Dick, Audi's development head: "If a father is happy to sit in his daughter's car, then we made it right."
