The Audi has now started production of the small A1 and have also confirmed prices. The new vehicle has proved so popular that at current production levels, some customers will have to wait until the next run. According to Paul Tan, Audi is to produce 50,000 A1 vehicles from now until the end of 2010, by 2012 this figure should exceed 100,000.
The prices are as follows: the 1.2 TFSI version, which produces 86hp, will cost €15,800. Then there is the 1.6 TDI version, which produces 105hp – the cost is €18,800. The final model that Paul Tan has pricing for is the 1.4 TFSI, this 122hp version will cost €19,900.
You will notice that the price of the Audi A1 is more expensive than other vehicles of the same type – but to get quality you have to pay a premium. One of the main competitors is the ever-popular BMW Mini, which starts at €13,000 – almost €2,000 cheaper than the base Audi A1.
