Audi’s first plug-in hybrid will be the A3 e-tron that pitches up in November and is likely to have a £30,000 price tag. It uses the company’s latest 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine driving in conjunction with an electric motor to deliver 35g/km CO2 emissions, 188mpg and a range of up to 600 miles. It manages 0-62mph in 7.6 seconds and drives through a DSG dual-clutch gearbox that has been specifically developed for the e-tron. On battery power alone, the A3 e-tron can cover 31 miles without the need for the petrol engine and can be fast charged to full power from near flat in 40minutes.
