The e-tron philosophy

Audi e-tron takes progressive technology and blends it with everyday usability, creating the electric driving experience of tomorrow. For you this means premium mobility, a hassle-free drive that has its foundations in the design you’ve already come to expect from an Audi. No more compromise.

Easy to charge, highly efficient and a significant step towards our vision to be CO2 neutral, Audi e-tron gives you the flexibility to choose to drive with just the combustion engine, just the electric drive, or in hybrid mode with both.

Meet the e-tron range

The Audi A3 Sportback e-tron, the first in the e-tron range, is now available to order. You can also test drive the A3 Sportback e-tron at an e-tron Centre near you.

Charging your e-tron

Every day e-tron

At home

Find the charging unit behind the Audi rings on the A3 Sportback e-tron grille. Connect the cable for the car's charge unit into a socket at home or use the wall box charging unit.

On the road

During your journey, energy recuperation technology converts kinetic energy from your brakes and stores it in the Lithium-ion battery. This energy is used to relieve the load on the alternator, helping to improve fuel efficiency.

At 1,000s of UK charge points

There are charge points across the UK, in car parks, supermarkets, on the street, right where you need them.

**Range is illustrative figure only, calculated on the basis of standard EU test figures (which are for comparative purposes). May not reflect real driving results.

The ‘combined/weighted’ fuel consumption/CO2 figures are calculated from two test results: one when the battery is fully charged and another when the battery is discharged. The two results are a weighted average, taking into account mileage range on battery power only, providing a figure in a variety of charge conditions. Battery charged using mains sourced electricity via plug-in. Extended range achieved by 1.4 TFSI petrol engine generating electricity. Fuel consumption and CO2 figures are obtained under standardised EU test conditions (Directive 93/116/EEC). This allows a direct comparison between different manufacturer models but may not represent the actual fuel consumption achieved in ‘real world’ driving conditions. Range figures are calculated on the basis of the standardised EU test figures for fuel consumption. As a result, they are illustrative only and may not represent the actual range achieved in ‘real world’ driving conditions. Achieved range can vary depending on many factors, including driving style, speed, the use of convenience features/secondary consumers, outside temperature, the number of passengers/size of load, selection of driving profile and topography. Emissions are while driving.
