Not the destination.

The advantages of electric driving without the restrictions - the Audi A3 Sportback e-tron is the first premium compact car with plug-in hybrid drive as standard. The combination of cutting-edge TFSI technology and an electric motor allows for an exceptionally low fuel consumption of 1.6l/100 km+ with CO2 emissions of only 37g/km+. The Audi A3 Sportback e-tron has a pure electric range of up to 50 kilometres^ (with zero local emissions) and a total range of up to 920 kilometres*.

From 0 to 100 km/h in 7.6 seconds

From 0 to 100 km/h in 7.6 seconds and a top speed of 222 km/h – the Audi A3 Sportback e-tron adds an extra highlight to the sporty character of the compact premium car line.

Disc-shaped electric motor

The Audi A3 Sportback e-tron uses the highly efficient concept of a parallel hybrid. The combustion engine is a modified 1.4 TFSI, which develops 110 kW and 250 Nm of torque. The TFSI engine operates in tandem with an electric motor that generates 75 kW and 330 Nm of power. The disc-shaped electric motor is integrated into a newly designed six-speed e-S tronic gearbox, which transfers the power to the front wheels. The two powerplants complement each other and offer the combined performance of 150 kW and 350 Nm of torque.

Powerful acceleration

The Audi A3 Sportback e-tron can be driven with just the combustion engine, just the electric drive or in hybrid mode. Even in electric mode it offers powerful acceleration without the need to engage the TFSI engine. The driver can choose to have both powerplants active at the same time (“boosting”) and when the driver lets up on the accelerator, they both deactivate temporarily (“coasting”). In this way, engine braking torque is eliminated and efficiency increases.
