Audi unveils its A3 saloon based Hybrid, the E-tron

Audi revealed its A3 based hybrid car at the Shanghai Motorshow. The four-seat notchback saloon integrates the full breadth of the brand’s technological expertise – from the enhanced MMI operating system, to the high-end infotainment system, to the drivetrain. And with its two powerplants and lithium-ion batteries that store enough energy to propel the car on electric power alone for up to 54 km, the plug-in hybrid also delivers high fuel efficiency.

A compact seven-speed S tronic serves as the transmission for the compact plug-in hybrid. It comprises two transmission structures, which are operated by two clutches. Gears are alternately shifted by the two clutches quickly, smoothly and  without any perceptible interruption of traction. The control panel for the MMI multimedia system is located on the centre tunnel console and the car also gets a WLAN hotspot for passengers who want to surf and send e-mail while travelling. With a whole set of gizmos the A3 hybrid is a looker and a saver.
