Audi unveiled its innovative new Urban concepts, in Sportback and Spyder forms during a media presentation ahead of the 2011 IAA in Frankfurt. 

The Audi Urban is a technology study featuring a 1+1 seating configuration, designed to offer mobility in metropolitan areas, with the only aspect differentiating these two concepts being the canopy style roof which slides to the rear on the Sportback, whereas the Spyder features a chopped up wrapparound windshield and doors that open to the top at an angle.

The Audi Urban Concepts weight 480 kilograms (1,058.22 lb) thanks to the lightweight chassis design and the numerous CFRP components, and measure 3,219 millimeters (126.73 in) in length, 1,678 millimeters (66.06 in) width, and just 1,189 millimeters (46.81 in) height.

Power is provided by two electric motors mounted between the rear wheels, producing a total of 20 horsepower (15 kW and 47 Nm of torque) which are being fed by a lithium ion battery weighting around 90 Kg (198.42 lb) that produces 7.1 kWh.

Audi says this battery will regain its energy in around 20 minutes if plugged in a 400 Volt three-phase outlet, or in around 1 hour at a regular 230 Volt current.

In terms of performance the Audi Urban Concepts sprint from nought to 60 kmph (37 mph) in 6 seconds (0 to 100 kmph / 62 mph in 16.9 seconds) and can hit a top speed of 100 kmph (62.14 mph)/ electronically limited.

Both the Sportback and the Spyder are able to cover around 73 Km (45 miles) before needing to recharge.
