Self Study Program 627 – Audi A3 Sportback e-tron (Type 8V)

VAG SSP 627. The Audi A3 Sportback e-tron is a plug-in hybrid engineered to provide a fully integrated mobility solution. There is no need for drivers to change their driving habits because the Audi A3 Sportback e-tron is designed to allow simple use of e-mobility.

It has an all-electric driving range of up to 50 kilometres and is driven by a 75 kW (102 HP) electric motor with a top speed of 130 kph. At high speeds and under heavy acceleration, the internal combustion engine is automatically activated to provide additional  power.

The Audi A3 Sportback e-tron brings together the best of both worlds – an electric motor for emission-free driving and an economical internal combustion engine for long range.

It therefore combines both driving enjoyment and environmental awareness.
