    Ten million is how many midsize cars Audi has managed to build till nowadays. As stated by Autoblog, it's an awfully big number. Any way you look at it. Stretching back to 1972, four generations of the Audi 80 and four more of the A4, its successor nameplate, were taken into consideration.

    The 10,000,000th midsize Audi, which is a Misano Red Audi S4 featuring a black and alabaster-white interior, rolled off the assembly line in Ingolstadt in early October. The automaker has actually commemorated a milestone in production.

    Having been on the market for 39 years, midsize Audis are recognized as champions. Starting 1972 with the first Audi 80 being launched, Audi set standards in lightweight design, agility, and performance. While four generations of the Audi 80 have been produced till 1995, the Audi A4 came to replace it. It was in March 2011 when the five millionth Audi A4 left the factory.

    Playing the leading role at Audi and realizing the monumental innovations, the midsize cars showcased the excellence in performance as well. There are such legendary rallye vehicles, as the Audi Rallye quattro and the Audi Sport quattro, as well as superior circuit racing cars (the Audi 90 quattro IMSA-GTO, the Audi 80 Competition, the Audi A4 quattro (STW), and the Audi A4 DTM) among midsize Audi's. No wonder Audi's midsize class has been ahead of competition.

    All New Electric Audi A2 Comes Out

    Audi is planning to launch the next generation Audi A2 which appears to be a rival to forthcoming BMW i3. New Audi A2 is debuting as an electric car concept at Frankfurt Motor Show this September.

    Back in 2005 the original model was discontinued, because of its aluminum construction's high price. According to the insider, the reborn model keeps aluminum spaceframe chassis, though it will cost more. Audi is actually setting the vehicle apart from more conventional A1 and A3, bringing the exciting technical innovation. New model is definitely more flexible and has the MPV-style body. Unlike most battery models, the next generation Audi A2 will be built from the ground up as a pure electric machine. The idea is so favoured by Audi that it could give a birth to a family of A2 electric models and create a standalone brand. Audi has bought a number of offshore wind turbines to power the manufacturing of pilot fleet of natural gas-powered A3 models and is going to use the same strategy in A2 production to keep it carbon neutral.

    Presenting an attractive blend of stlye, efficiency, and utililty, the refreshed Audi A2 is likely to be a tidbit for image-conscious buyers. The model received the panoramic glass sunroof, sleek body style, and notably wide wheel arches. As for the interior, it is much alike with the A1's, but more versatile. It features a variable-height boot floor, a sliding rear bench, and additional room for rear-seat passengers. New Audi A2 is expected to get to dealers by 2015.
