The second-generation A1 will arrive in November with the aim of drawing new and young customers to the brand. The outgoing A1 is Audi’s third-best-selling model in the UK. It has been a consistent seller for Audi across Europe, too, with annual sales in the region only once dipping below 90,000 units since it was launched in 2010.

While the region is giving rise to more…While the region is giving rise to more of the world’s most promising technology companies, the giants of the industry mostly come from the US and China.
