Audi is currently planning a new A2, company boss Rupert Stadler has told Autocar.
"As we gave the A1 that nomenclature there’s clearly room for another product and another concept between the A3," he admitted.
Stadler wouldn’t be drawn on what exactly a new A2 could be, but admitted that it would be an obvious propostion.
"If you don’t have to explain a car like the A2 then it works," he said.
However other insiders have admitted that the A2 is likely to be an ‘E2’: an electric car based on the the A1 but with a unique bodystyle and look.
Stadler also quashed rumours that Audi was planning a car based on the VW Up!, possibly badged A0, saying that there was no possibility of the company slotting in a car under the forthcoming A1 supermini, which will be launched at the Geneva motor show in March.
