Audi revealed its 2014 A3 E-tron, which is
the automaker's entry
into the plug-in hybrid market.
The 2014 Audi A3 E-tron plug-in hybrid features a 148-HP 1.4-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine and an electric motor that offers 100 HP. It gets 188 MPG on the European cycle, and can run 31 miles on electric alone at speeds up to 80 MPH.
Audi also mentioned a new six-speed e-S tronic transmission, which transfers the power to the front wheels. The car can go from zero to 62 MPH in 7.6 seconds.
"The electrification of the drivetrain, above all using plug-in technology, will play a decisive role in the model strategy of (Audi)," said Audi in a statement. "This latest development is designed to give some insight into how the technology will take shape in the Audi models of the future."

That would be called the Golf e-tron. The A3 and the Golf are on the same chassis and share most of their engineering. The hyrid VW Jetta costs about 28K and that's without the extra batteries for a plug in so don't count on this to be less than 30K especially as an Audi.
