A new e-tron concept appeared under the shape of an A3

Audi is thinking of expanding the electric engine to more and more of its models. The German automaker will present a new e-tron concept in the A3 model.
This model is the fourth e-tron version presented by Audi and it is built as a four-seat notchback sedan and it uses a system designed to work as a plug-in hybrid.
It has a 1.4 TFSI four-cylinder engine that produces 211 horsepower with turbocharging and gasoline and an electric motor that develops 27 horsepower. This helps the car speed from 0-62 in 6.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 231 km/h.
If we take a look at the design of the A3, well, we can see the elements we all know and we are used with and also some new ones, for the first time on the e-tron replicas.
Nothing yet about a production version of the model, but for sure soon we'll see it on the streets. For now, at the Shanghai Auto Show it will be presented in the form of a technical study and nothing more.
