All-electric, hybrid or combustion: as a plug-in hybrid that features all drive types, the Audi A3 Sportback TFSI e² offers powerful performance. The exterior of the Sportback also indicates the vehicle’s dynamism, agility and momentum. Its interior unites design, functionality, operability and digitalisation.
0 to 100 km/h
Flexible driving pleasure: the technology
As a plug-in hybrid, the Audi A3 Sportback TFSI e² combines the advantages of both a combustion engine and an electric motor. In combination with a lithium-ion battery, the electric motor provides sporty support to the 1.4-litre TFSI engine but also impresses in all-electric mode. The engine and the electric motor offer a combined output of up to 204HP (150 kW). As a result, the vehicle accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.6 seconds. The suspension of the Audi A3 Sportback TFSI e² is sporty and balanced, producing a satisfying equilibrium of dynamism and driving comfort.
Tailored to requirements: The performance
The Audi A3 Sportback TFSI e² combines the best of both worlds: In all-electric mode it produces very little noise and zero local emissions. Despite the low noise level, the electric motor offers a powerful drive. This is because electric motors offer the advantage of being able to directly tap into impressive torque right from the word go. In addition, the combustion engine allows for sporty manoeuvres on long journeys without having to stop and recharge. All-electric, partly electric or combustion – the performance of the Audi A3 Sportback TFSI e² can be tailored to the driver’s requirements.
Choice of drive type: Four driving modes
The drive concept is designed to allow the majority of everyday short trips to be completed in all-electric mode. In the Audi A3 Sportback TFSI e², the drive type used is regulated via four different driving modes: purely electric driving (EV), the primary use of the combustion engine to maintain (hold) or increase (charge) the battery charge for later electric driving, or the efficient interaction (hybrid).
Dynamic and striking: The exterior
The Audi A3 Sportback TFSI e² takes a compact stance on the road. Its wide hexagonal Singleframe grille dominates the front view. The V-shaped shoulder line runs from the headlights to the rear lights, visually stretching the vehicle. Its wheel arches are accentuated and the striking body shoulders stand out. Audi calls this progressive design feature quattro blisters. The heavily inclined C-pillars also lend this five-door vehicle compelling visual momentum. The TFSI e badge on the luggage compartment cover signals that this is a member of the Audi plug-in hybrid family.
The interior³ of the Audi A3 Sportback TFSI e² is characterised by the black-panel look of the instrument panel and centre console. The width of the cockpit is emphasised by horizontal lines and surfaces with a clear design. The cockpit is focused entirely on the driver. Even the redesigned climate control operating unit is angled slightly towards the driver. The optional contour and ambient lighting package, which offers a choice of 30 colours for a more atmospheric interior, enhances the vehicle’s individuality.

The specified fuel consumption and emission data have been determined according to the measurement procedures prescribed by law. Since 1st September 2017, certain new vehicles are already being type-approved according to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure for measuring fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Starting on September 1st 2018, the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) will be replaced by the WLTP in stages. Owing to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions measured according to the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those measured according to the NEDC. Therefore, the usage of CO2 emission values measured according to WLTP for vehicle taxation from 1st September 2018 on can cause changes in this regard as well. For further information on the differences between the WLTP and NEDC, please visit www.audi.de/wltp.
We are currently still required by law to state the NEDC figures. In the case of new vehicles which have been type-approved according to the WLTP, the NEDC figures are derived from the WLTP data. It is possible to specify the WLTP figures voluntarily in addition until such times as this is required by law. In cases where the NEDC figures are specified as value ranges, these do not refer to a particular individual vehicle and do not constitute part of the sales offering. They are intended exclusively as a means of comparison between different vehicle types. Additional equipment and accessories (e.g. add-on parts, different tyre formats, etc.) may change the relevant vehicle parameters, such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics, and, in conjunction with weather and traffic conditions and individual driving style, may affect fuel consumption, electrical power consumption, CO2 emissions and the performance figures for the vehicle. Further information on official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO₂ emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the guide “Information on the fuel consumption, CO₂ emissions and electricity consumption of new cars”, which is available free of charge at all sales dealerships and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Strasse 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen, Germany (www.dat.de).
