The A1 is based on the Audi MQB (Modular Transverse Matrix) platform and is expected to take on BMW's Mini. It will be built at the Volkswagen Group factory in Brussels, Belgium.
CarAdvice initially brought you the A1 in its Metroproject quattro concept form, but things have changed a little bit since then.
While the concept featured a new hybrid powertrain (29.8kw electric motor) attached to the Golf GT's twincharged 1.4 L (110.4 kW) engine, the standard A1 range will no doubt be available with conventional engines.
The Q1 will go head to head with Mini's new offroader. While the Speedster and Cabriolet will complete the lineup.
Little else is known about upcoming the A1 range.
