Official Audi A3 e-tron thread

Mon Apr 11, 2011 11:39 am

Audi A3 e-tron details released; another 'converted' ICE, shorter range (~90 miles) and perhaps slower? 2013 release, no pricing info either. I do like the ICE diesel version of the A3 but more alternatives down the road is always good to see as at least its an effort ...

Looks like a nice conversion, not too much trunk space lost to the battery, unlike the Focus hack. 3.3kw charger from the picture below.

3.3kW charger is notable. Guess it's sized for an ordinary 230V/16A euro circuit. Looks like a nice vehicle, some upscale utility competition for the Leaf.

Cool concept car. I can't wait to see the toned-down production version. A RS3 Sedan would be so much fun. Crazy wheels... GE called, they want their jet engine turbine fans back.

Funny how the “Gee Whiz” stuff falls off as soon as you start talking production instead of concept. A good looking car to be sure, but how do you settle packaging in that low platform without a hatch area at the rear headrest level. And is the 3.3kW charger the curse of all DC brushless drivetrains? It’s "No Sale" without minimum 6.6kW charger.

Just too bad it does not implement the Kolibri battery.

Seems the A3 eTron is making a limited engagement appearance in the US;

Well, two out of the four test cities (Denver & D.C.) actually have some cold weather for a change so perhaps we may see some of these 'tests' in Chicago as well someday! We see a fair amount of ICE A3's out this way; would be more interested in one of these over a Fit.
