As a Audi owner myself i do have to say i love the style and design behind Audi cars and recently (perhaps a few months back now) they introduced the Audi Urban Concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Still a concept but goes to show that a lot of effort is going into electric cars by the manufactures.
As Twizy owners i think we can all say we are the first to try out of this new range of vehicles and in time when it goes more main stream we can all say to our friends remember when i had the Twizy
