AUDI A3 Sportback review

NGC verdict 11.06.2013

Despite its e-tron badging, unlike the attention gathering Audi R8 e-tron prototype sports car, this model, due in the UK mid next year, is not a pure electric car but actually Audi's first petrol-electric plug-in hybrid. Audi now believes this technology will be with us for a long time.

The company claims many urban drivers will rarely experience the petrol engine in the A3 Sportback e-tron if they recharge their plug-in car regularly thanks to a 30-mile electric only range. Hybrids though remain an expensive way to travel. First impressions suggest this e-tron could be quite a fun car to drive on a twisty road but that would be at the expense of fuel economy.
