Audi A1 e-tron concept – Click above for high-res image gallery

Seeing the Audi A1 and A1 e-tron concept at this year's Geneva Motor Show provides proof that the quad-ring automaker is putting a much larger focus on its small car offerings. With that in mind, new rumors are cropping up about a possible successor to the A2 – the quirky little hatch that never came to the U.S. and only had minor success in Europe.

"There's clearly room for another product and another concept between the A3 and A1," Audi CEO Rupert Stadler told AutoWeek during the Geneva Motor Show. The new A2 would likely be A1-based and use an electric powertrain, possibly sourced from the A1 e-tron concept. European media has reported that the A2 successor is expected to debut by 2014, and no word has been given about a possible U.S.-spec version. However, with Audi keeping the A1 away from American soil, it's likely that the A2 would be a Europe-only affair, as well.

      I would have thought European's would prefer a diesel more then just a pure ev?

        We are over flowing with diesels ;)

        It is time for some EVs but they all seem to be 2 years away.

      I expect to see a rash of EVs in the UK before the end of 2010. Our EV grant starts 1st January.
