2017 Audi A3 e-Tron: The Unsung Green Hero

By  | 

Audi has invested a lot of money in their marketing department and this enabled them to turn the R8 into a global icon in the supercars realm. But then again, the marketing department failed to promote one other vehicle from the company and it is the Audi A3 e-Tron.

This little green compact sedan is not as popular as the Chevrolet Volt, Nissan Leaf or BMW i3 but it is going to be better. The A3 e-Tron may be a car from Audi but it will be very friendly to the pockets. The official pricing figures will start at $38,825 and the range-topping model will cost $47,725.

Considering that Audi is a luxury carmaker, the A3 e-Tron can be said as a really cheap green car as it prices are near-similar to the Chevrolet Volt.

The A3 e-Tron will be offered with two powertrain options – EV and pure hybrid. The EV model will have about 150 miles of driving range to offer and this makes it more attractive than the BMW i3.

Now, if only the marketing team can turn the A3 e-Tron into an popular name in the industry like the R8. That will certainly be something.
