The Audi 50 (known internally as the Typ 86) is a supermini economy carproduced by German automaker Audi from 1974 to 1978 and sold only inE urope. Introduced two or three years after the Italian Fiat 127 and the French Renault 5, the model was seen at the time as Germany's first home grown entrant in Europe's emerging "supermini" class. The Audi 50 was built by Audi NSU Auto Union AG at the former NSU factory inNeckarsulm, Germany and at the giant Wolfsburg plant by Volkswagen. The car was rebadged six months later by Volkswagen as the Volkswagen Polowith a wider range of engine and other options. The Volkswagen Polo was launched in the home market in September 1974 and appeared in export markets, including the UK, a few months later. The car was offered as a three-door hatchback with a 1,093 cc (66.7 cu in)petrol engine, producing either 37 kW (50 PS; 50 bhp) or 44 kW (60 PS; 59 bhp) for the LS and GL models, respectively. The model was popular in Europe, both because of its generous specifications for a car of the time, and on account of its relatively low price. The Volkswagen and Audi badged models were sold alongside each other for 3 years until 1978, but the cheaper Volkswagen Polo outsold the Audi 50, and Audi discontinued the Audi 50 in 1978, after a total production of 180,812 units. A planned facelift which would have given the Audi 50 a look closer to that of the Audi 100 and Audi 80 was never implemented because of a holding company board decision that the Audi brand should concentrate on larger, more expensive cars. The Volkswagen Polo range continued to evolve, with the Volkswagen Derbynotchback version, despite being developed by Audi at Ingolstadt, branded as aVolkswagen and launched in 1977. Subsequently the Volkswagen Polo has evolved through numerous generations to the present day. The Audi 50 had no replacement in the supermini class until the launch of the significantly larger Audi A2 in 1999 which was also discontinued in 2005. In 2010, the Audi 50 was spiritually succeeded by the Audi A1.
