Audi A3 e-tron: The first electro-Audi production started
Audi working on electric vehicles is certainly no secret. The Germans have the spectacular presentation of the e-tron concept cars we have frequently treated to “exciting” electric models.
Audi has chosen purely electric solutions, the A3 is an e-tron study differs from A1 e-tron , which had a Wankel engine to recharge the battery while driving. Anyway, in addition to the Audi is experimenting with other solutions in the e-tron A5 quattro.
The engine will deliver 100 kW (just over 130 hp ) and according to the results of the first test, the car takes just over 11 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km / h and reaches a top speed of 145 km / h . The lithium-ion battery from 26.5 kWh (which increases the weight of just bringing the car to 1,592 kg) is situated where the fuel tank under the rear seat. To recharge it with a normal household power outlet takes about nine hours while, thanks to a 400 volt fast charger are enough four.
Audi’s plans for the A3 e-tron are not known, but we can assume that this new Audi wants to show how far in the field of electric mobility. The A3 e-tron is also a much more realistic model than the spectacular R8 e-e-tron and tron ??I & II presented by Audi in recent years.
