According to Automotive News, Audi is mulling a plan that would see the Europe-only A2 small car sold here in the U.S. However, unlike the current A2, the U.S. version would be a battery electric vehicle, making it ideal for city dwellers. No word on when the A2 EV would hit the market, but with a production version of the e-tron concept planned for 2013, we'd expect a similar timetable for the smaller EV.
In addition to the electric A2, Audi is also considering a unique A3 sedan for the United States market. The A3 is due for a redesign in 2012, at which time Audi will expand the range to include a convertible, wagon and crossover. During that redesign, Audi could also add a sedan model to the A3 lineup, which would likely be reserved for the U.S. market.
A smaller Q3 crossover is also planned, which could reach our shores in 2011 or 2012.
