Simple Nomenclature

posted in: Online Around the Net | 0

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 / A, E, Q, R, S and T.

Audi is developing a reincarnation of the A2 small car that will slot between the A3 and the A1 minicar introduced in Geneva last week for the European markets. It is still undetermined if North America will see this Easter egg shaped vehicle any time soon.

Audi does make it rather easy to see where this vehicle fits in its offered line-up simply by its numerical nomenclature. Rather refreshing for those who don’t even follow Audi that closely… could this simple attribute have something to do with its recent increased sales which has dealers screaming for more inventory with less than 14 days supply?

  • A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6, A7 and A8
  • E-Tron (electric concept)
  • Q5 and Q7
  • R8
  • TT

Sub categories:

  • Avant (wagon)
  • Cabriolet (convertible)
  • Coupe (2-door)
  • L (extended length, ie. A8)
  • Sedan (4-door)
  • S-Line (performance/appearance enhanced)
  • TDI (clean diesel)

It all comes down to offering a product that the consumer wants or desires. The KISS (keep it simple stupid) method sure helps.
