Audi A3 e-tron Concept burns 1.5L/100km image

The German based automaker Audi has released more details on the A3 e-tron Concept, ahead of its public debut scheduled for the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

After seeing the brand new model just a day ago for the first time, the Audi A3 e-tron Concept is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the carmaker announcing new details on the model. According to the car manufacturer, the Audi A3 e-tron Concept is burning a whopping 1.5 liters of fuel every 100 km thanks to its petrol-electric hybrid system. The same drive train has recently made its way onto the VW Golf 7 Plug-in Hybrid, in the same configuration.

The Audi A3 e-tron Concept is coming with a modified version of the EA211 1.4 liter four-cylinder petrol engine, producing 148 BHP, mated to an electric motor mounted in the front, which is providing an extra 101 BHP. The total output stands at 201 BHP and the torque figure at 258 lb-ft., which is being sent to the front wheels through a six-speed dual clutch transmission. The 0 to 62 mph acceleration takes 7.6 seconds and top speed stands at 138 mph. The model will be unveiled next month, in Geneva.
