The Audi A3 e-tron

Posted on 21. Feb, 2013 by in Audi Canada

The Audi A3 e-tron is a loyal Audi. It sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 7.6 seconds on a approach to a tip speed of 222 km/h (137.94 mph). According to a ECE customary for plug-in hybrid automobiles, a five-door indication consumes on normal only 1.5 liters of fuel per 100 km (156.81 US mpg), that corresponds to CO2 emissions of 35 grams per km (56.33 g/mile). In electric mode, a Audi A3 e-tron reaches a tip speed of 130 km/h (80.78 mph) and has a limit operation of 50 km (31.07 miles).

The explosion engine is a mutated 1.4 TFSI producing 110 kW (150 hp). A purchase links a TFSI to an electric engine with an outlay of 75 kW. The disc-shaped electric engine is integrated into a newly designed six-speed e-S tronic, that transfers a energy to a front wheels. The dual powerplants element one another. The electric engine delivers a rise torque from start to around 2000 rpm, and a TFSI’s limit pulling energy is accessible in a operation from 1,750 to 4,000 rpm.

The Audi A3 e-tron can be driven with only a explosion engine, only a electric expostulate or in hybrid mode. Even in electric mode it offers absolute acceleration but a need to rivet a TFSI. The motorist can select to have both powerplants active during a same time (“boosting”). When a motorist lets adult on a accelerator, they both deactivate temporarily (“gliding”). In this approach engine braking torque is separated and potency increases.

At a Geneva Motor Show, a Audi A3 e-tron will yield a picturesque glance into a destiny of mobility as Audi is formulation it. The foundation of a drivetrain, above all regulating plug-in technology, plays a determining purpose in a plan of a brand.
