New Audi A3 Sportback e-tron

As a plug-in hybrid, the A3 Sportback e-tron combines the comfort and performance of an Audi with the efficiency of electric power. It is capable of up to 29 miles* of electric driving on one charge, while still offering the benefits of a conventional petrol engine for longer journeys.

The Audi e-tron philosophy

Easy to charge, highly efficient and a significant step towards our vision to be CO2 neutral. Audi e-tron offers flexibility premium motoring and a hassle-free drive. No more compromise.

The new A3 Sportback e-tron

Originally released in 2014, the A3 Sportback e-tron was our first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. Redesigned in 2016, the new A3 Sportback e-tron promotes mobility without compromise, combining a 75 kW electric motor with a 1.4 TFSI petrol engine.

What is e-tron

​Audi e-tron takes progressive technology and blends it with everyday usability, creating the electric driving experience of tomorrow.

Audi e-tron uses an electric motor and a conventional combustion engine. These are able to work independently or in tandem with each other.

This means e-tron models can run purely on the electric motor (ideal for short journeys and city driving), just the combustion engine, or in hybrid mode with both. This offers the driver the performance and reliability of a combustion engine, with the economy of an electric motor.

Plug-in hybrid technology isn’t all that makes the A3 Sportback e-tron special. It comes with a high level of equipment as standard, including MMI Navigation Plus with MMI Touch, Advanced key and Pre-sense Front with pedestrian recognition, as well as technology to change your driving mode with the EV button and also to control when you charge with Audi e-tron connected services.

Charge time

​Charging the A3 Sportback e-tron is simple. You just ‭need to slide the Audi rings on the front grille to one ‭side and plug in your charging cable, either at home ‭or at one of the many public charging points around ‭the country.‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬ To charge the lithium-ion 8.8 kW battery only takes 2 hours and 15 minutes. You can charge your A3 e-tron using the following methods:

  • Home wallbox or public charging point - 3.6 kW Type 2 (approx. 2.15 hours)
  • Industrial socket - 3.6 kW (approx. 2.15 hours)
  • At home using a domestic 3 pin socket (230v 10A)** (approx. 3 hours)


The A3 e-tron has a purely electric range of up to 29 miles. The combination of electric motor and petrol engine offers a range of approximately 536 miles*– so if you need to make a long trip, you can do so without needing to stop to recharge.

Acceleration (0 - 62mph)

Thanks to the combination of a 1.4 TFSI engine, an electric motor and the smooth-shifting S tronic transmission, the A3 Sportback e-tron can accelerate from 0-62mph in 7.6 seconds*.


The Audi A3 Sportback e-tron demonstrates remarkable hybrid efficiency, with a combined mpg of up to 166.2 and CO2 levels from 38g/km. And when driving in the pure electric mode, the e-tron produces zero emissions.
