Audi will have a slight edge on BMW, as they intend to bring the A2 to market by 2012, with BMW lagging a year and scheduling a 2013 on-sale date.
If the A2 is to resemble the forward-thinking model that once bore its name, it will likely retain a tall, almost awkward MPV style. Should Audi find a way to make the A2 as innovative as the original - which was ahead of its time due to its all-aluminum construction - it could prove to be a big mover in the EV market.
