The front grille of the A2 is a single unit designed to assist in electrical operation with two thirds of its upper portion as closed folding surface. Underneath the grille are installed the cooling inlets which are made out of graphite foam and act as air inlets.

The A2 comes equipped with a new feature called Semi-Autonomous Drive. This technology enables the car to move ahead while stalled in bumper-to-bumper traffic. The car is also Wi-Fi enabled. According to Audi, the concept car A2 has a range of nearly 200kms with the capability of recharging itself within an hour and half from zero power.
