There are a lot of big things in the works for Audi, but the one that all of us at South Hills Audi are really pumped about is the A3 e-tron concept, which will be revealed at the Geneva Auto Show. This luxury hybrid is the perfect blend of performance and efficiency.
While maintaining hybrid-level fuel economy (combined fuel rating of 158 mpg), the A3 e-tron (powered by a ferocious 1.4-liter turbo coupled with an electric motor) manages to get the combined power of 204 stallions, as well as maximum combined torque of 258 lb-ft. It can also launch to 62 miles an hour in 7.6 seconds and can keep skyrocketing all the way to 138 mph—something you don’t often see for a hybrid.
It’s set to be released next year, so prepare to play the waiting game for this baby. And what’s worse: it may never actually make it to South Hills Audi, as a U.S. release hasn’t been confirmed (although we all anticipate it will make the overseas trek to our American roadways). Keep checking back in here for more updates on the Audi A3 e-tron and all other Audi news, and keep your fingers crossed for an American release in 2014!
