Images of Audi's newest 'Urban Concept', an electric concept car, have hit the market. This new electric car has been designed to bring together the feel of a racing car, a roadster, a fun car and an urban one. The model, which will first be seen at next month's Frankfurt Motor Show, has a sleek, lightweight body and large 21-inch free-standing wheels. 

In order to minimize the weight of the car and increase efficiency, the cockpit has been made of carbon fibre-reinforced polymer. Additionally, this car will be powered by a lithium-ion battery and propelled by two e-tron electric motors. Entry into the car is through the rear door. The roof however does glide back giving you the feel of a convertible.
