Audi A1 concept coming to Paris, this time with 4-doors

Posted on 16 September, 2008

Audi will show its second concept version of the A1 at the 2008 Paris Motor Show next month. According to Automotive News, the concept will be a further development of the Metroproject Quattro concept we saw at the Tokyo Motor Show last year but will have 4-doors.

No idea what’s going to be under the hood but the Metroproject Quattro carried a 1.4L TFSI engine producing a total of 150-hp which was mated to a S-tronic transmission. It also carried an electric motor allowing for 41 horsepower and a fuel-economy of 48 mpg.

The Audi A1 will go into production in 2009. It is expected to spawn a convertible and an off-roader variant as well. Just recently, Audi’s CEO Rupert Stadler said that Audi has no plans to launch the compact A1 in North America.
