The German luxury brand wants to realign itself as a premium brand across the globe
Speaking to German newspaper Handelsblatt, Audi’s chief executive officer Markus Duesmann said “we have decided not to build the A1 anymore, and there will be no successor model from the Q2 either. We have also realigned Audi as a premium brand.”
In Australia, the Q2 is offered with both front-wheel or all-wheel drive drivetrains, with engines ranging from the base 110kW 35 TFSI to the punchy SQ2 model which produces 221kW of power and 400Nm of torque.
Pricing starts at $43,600 before on-roads for the 35 TFSI model, while the higher spec 40 TFSI will set buyers back $50,600 before on-roads.
The top spec performance SQ2 is priced at $65,300 before on-road costs.
It is hard to say exactly what year the Q2 will finish up, but an Audi generally has a generation life of six to eight years so we could see the Q2 discontinued in 2024.
There is a possibility there could be a successor to the Q2 but what that is has yet to be determined. An all electric model could appear around 2025 but it may not carry the Q2 name.
