Audi A3 e-tron
Audi has revealed that it will taking the new A3 e-tron to Geneva next month, providing what Audi calls, “a realistic glimpse into the future of mobility.”

Based on the new five-door A3 Sportback, the A3 e-tron is a plug-in hybrid with a system output of 150 kW (204 hp) and 350 Nm, allowing a 0-100 km/h time of 7.6 seconds and a top speed of 222 km/h (138 mph), while consuming a average of 1.5 litres of fuel every 100 kilometres and emitting 35 grams per km.

Propelling the A3 is a 110 kW (150 hp) 1.4 TFSI mated to a newly designed six-speed e-S tronic transmission which also houses a 75 kW electric motor. Depending on the journey, the driver can choose to use the combustion engine alone, or just the electric drive or in hybrid mode. In electric mode alone the A3 can reach a top speed of 130 km/h and cover a maximum range of 50 kilometres.

Visually, this A3 wears a revised, single-frame grille with finer bars, with similar strips over the air intakes and a special rear diffuser. The look is completed with those familiar-looking multi-spoke e-tron alloys wheels.
