Audi promises a new fuel consumption record in the mini segment. According to officials from Ingolstadt, within three years they will introduce an Audi A1 with a diesel engine that will consume only 1 liter/100 km (282 mpg imperial, 235 mpg US).
Audi currently offers one of the most efficient lines of automotive products in the market. Even so, the German car manufacturer wants progress and announces a revolution in the mini segment. They’re working on a highly economical version of the current Audi A1, able to provide a record consumption of only 1 liter per 100 kilometers (282 mpg imperial, 235 mpg US).
Audi A1 – record fuel economy
The information was confirmed even by Wolfgang Durheimer, Audi technology director, who admitted that his engineers are currently working at a very economical version of the current Audi A1. The model will be affordable and will carry four passengers.
Durheimer also assured that there will be no compromise in achieving this record fuel consumption values. The model will have all the comfort of a normal car, including automatic climate control.
Wolfgang Durheimer declined to give more details, but it is almost certain that the model won’t use the two-cylinder diesel engine found in the future Volkswagen XL1.
The next Audi A1 design is inspired by the Audi Crosslane Coupe, which is said also to serve as muse for the future Q2.
