The Audi e-tron is a family of cars developed by Audi that brings together the concept of electric and hybrid. This revolutionary concept was first shown in 2009 and has since been unveiled in 2012 and then first released to customers in Europe in 2014. The latest vehicle slated for release is the A-3 Sportback e-tron.
This vehicle is far from your typical hybrid. It’s an electric plug-in hybrid that combines Audi’s sportiness and luxury. The 2016 A-3 has the ability to run purely on electricity, gas or even a combination of the two. The electric motor offers 243lbs-ft of torque for a beautiful, quiet and smooth ride. The electric motor is joined by a gas engine that delivers 204 horse power for responsive acceleration.
Through this innovation, Audi is trying to reduce their carbon footprint. For more information, check out Audi’s website.
