Electric Audi Under Development, Not A1-BasedSAccording to Audi board member Peter Schwarzenbauer, speaking at last week's Paris Motor Show, the Audi group is developing an all-electric car not based on the pending Audi A1 compact. His statement bolsters Audi's claim at the beginning of the year of plans for an electric within five to ten years. Whatever this electric Audi may be, it's likely to be based on the next VW Lupo platform which first debuted in the VW Up! Concept at the Frankfurt Auto Show. At this point we might as well get prepared for the electric revolution, as everybody seems to be jumping in on the action now. [Autocar]
