Audi’s e-tron technology is a modern hybrid drive system that delivers minimal emissions without compromising on everyday usability. One of two models in the firm’s respected range currently includes the A3 e-tron Sportback.
The A3 e-tron Sportback is on sale at Lancaster Audi today. Find out more about them both by enquirig with your local Lancaster Audi dealership.
As well as being refined the Audi A3 e-tron Sportback is also as safe as Audi's non hybrid cars.
Active systems including Electronic Stabilisation Control (ESC) and Electronic Differential Lock (EDL) will help you to avoid accidents, and the A3 Sportback e-tron even gets Active Bonnet as standard to protect pedestrians.
At first glance it's difficult to separate this e-tron model from its combustion-powered alternatives. The A3 Sportback e-tron retains its compact shape and short overhangs, with only the headlights, rear badging, air vents and exhaust revealing subtle tweaks.
Premium details including chrome-trimmed windows and grille plus LED lights will continue to reinforce Audi's position at the top of the market.
Fine materials have been used throughout the cabin and familiar features including the jet engine-style vents have been carried over.
Responsible high-performance is the aim of Audi’s hybrid technology and the A3 Sportback e-tron’s figures suggest the German brand has achieved this.
