Audi A3 e-tron Plug-In Hybrid (201hp)

In the next two weeks, Audi is going to introduce its latest Audi A3 e-tron plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) at the Geneva Motor Show, which is hosted annually in Geneva, Switzerland. The latest A3 e-tron propulsion system comprises a 1.4 litre TFSI turbocharged gasoline combustion engine that produces 148 HP, and an electric motor that provides an additional 101 HP.

It utilizes a newly designed e-S tronic six-speed transmission that turns the front wheels.

The electric motor and gas engine mentioned above provide the vehicle in total with 350 Newton-metres, or 258.1 ft-lbs of torque, and 201 HP.

These motors propel the vehicle from 0 to 62 MPH (100 km/h) in 7.6 seconds, and to a maximum velocity of 138 MPH (222 km/h). This is not bad for a plug-in hybrid, but it isn’t uncommon for hybrids to achieve this. For example: the Porsche 918 Spyder hybrid does it in 2.9 seconds, and can attain a top speed of 198 mph; the Lexus RS450h AWD hybrid SUV does it in 7.4 seconds; and the Lexus LS 600h L does it in 5.6 seconds.

According to the ECE standard for plug-in hybrid automobiles, the Audi A3 e-tron requires only 1.5 litres of fuel per 100 km traveled — this translated to 156.8 MPG (U.S. rating) or 188 MPG (UK rating). Its CO2 emissions are 35 g/km when the electric motor is in constant use. This PHEV has three driving modes:

Electric mode: In this mode, it relies only on electricity and can travel 31 miles (50 km) per charge. It can attain a top speed of 81 MPH (130 km/h) in this mode. Hybrid mode: This involves the combined use of the electric motor and gasoline engine. The vehicle can attain a speed of 138 MPH in this mode. Gasoline-only: This involves the use of the gasoline combustion engine alone.

The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
