Audi will discontinue the Q2 after only one generation, a premature end to the baby crossover. Due to the Four Rings priority for bigger and more expensive cars, the A1 supermini will also suffer the same fate.

It has already been announced that the German luxury brand will launch its last new ICE-powered vehicle in 2025.
