Electric Vehicle - Audi A2 e-tron lightweight champion

The focus for an electric vehicle has been on batteries and weight mainly. Audi's expected A2 E-Tron is setting a low example of almost as low as 800 kg! Very impressive work of the guys and gals at the Audi engineering department. Now let's wait for it to show up on a street near us, hopefully sooner than later.

Engineers at Audi have reportedly set an internal weight target of 800 kilograms (1,764 pounds) for the four-seat A2, but that’s awful light and seems like it would require the use of Audi’s costly Multimaterial Space Frame (MSF) technology.
