The styling of the A3 e-tron is more or less identical
to the A3 sedan concept. About the only changes are a
new grille with more slats, slightly different lower air
intakes and new wheels.
The plug-in hybrid drivetrain of the A3 e-tron consists
of a 211 horsepower, turbocharged 1.4 litre TFSI four-cylinder
engine and a 27 horsepower electric motor. Working together,
the engine and electric motor can accelerate the car to
62mph (100km/h) in 6.8 seconds, then on to 144mph.
The lithium-ion batteries, which are located behind the
rear seats, give the A3 e-tron a range of up to 34 miles
on electric power alone. The transmission is a compact
seven-speed S tronic unit.
