Audi A1 preparing for German market launch

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

Today is a big day for any Audi fan, as the smallest member of the Audi family the A1 subcompact will be available beginning August 27 at dealers in Germany for a test drive. The new Audi A1 will be launched with three engine options: the 1.2 TFSI, the 1.4 TFSI and the 1.6 TDI.

Each engine will feature direct injection, turbocharging and a start-stop system with braking energy recovery, which means that the A1 will be the first car in its segment to offer start-stop system with an automatic transmission.

Although it didn't make its debut on the market, Audi says that the A1 made quite a buzz and a total of 50,000 units are scheduled to roll off the production line in Brussels by the end of 2010. Audi says that international dealers showed great interest in the A1, exceeding any expectations.

As a result, Audi will launch the A1 in the Asia-Pacific region and in South America in early 2011. Chinese debut is also considered by Audi. Regarding the U.S. debut Peter Schwarzenbauer, Member of the Board of Management for Marketing and Sales at Audi AG said that the car might arrive when the second generation will be introduced!
