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."

During the Bush administration the GOP delcared no added CAFE stds needed since cars would cost thousands more. IN addition the GOP declared there is no proof on climate change. Pres Obama and the DEMS passed CAFE stds for 2025 for a fleet avg of 54 mpg. WE are seeing the engineers at all the auto firms in the world designing green muscle machines of 500 hp getting EPA numbers of 24-26 mpg as does the Z06 Corvette from Chevy. Our new Kia Optima SX Turbo pushes 269 ft lbs of torque at a mere 1750 rpms with a direct injected twin scroll turbo at a amazing 18 psi boost and gets 34 mpg on the highway 29 mpg combined. Muscle cars and super cars having a hybrid system with 800 hp and the limits are unbelievable. Technology is here along with Pres Obama and we climate change crazies. We still love our cars but also love our planet. Changes help all of us and the GOP will evenutally understand after loosing more Pres Elections down the road. The masses believe in clean energy and coal is 18th century. Nuclear has so many problems in disposal. Check out Washington state now with a disaster looming. Underground rods highly radioactive for the next thousand years. Where do we put them?
