Audi A3 Range Sees New 45 TFSI e Plug-In Hybrid For 2021
Following the release of the recently launched Audi A3 40 TFSI e, Audi have prepared a new more powerful A3 45 TFSI e model to be released in 2021.
Following the release of the successful Audi A3 40 TFSI e PHEV (Plug-In Hybrid), Audi have confirmed a more powerful variant for 2021, the A3 45 TFSI e PHEV.
- The Audi A3 45 TFSI e S Line Competition will be available from early 2021
- UK pricing to be confirmed nearer to launch
- Will come with 245bhp, 400nm of torque and up to 37 all-electric miles
- The Exclusive S Line Competition model offers black styling and graphite grey alloy wheels
The Audi A3 45 TFSI e S Line Competition will be a top of the line PHEV car within the A3 Sportback range. Thanks to its 245bhp 1.4-litre engine combined with an 80kW electric motor, the A3 45 TFSI has blistering performance. A defining reason to choose this over the less powerful 40 TFSI e. Performance figures for the 45 TFSI e are great, with a 0 to 62mph sprint coming in at just 6.8 seconds. It has a top speed of 144mph and can deliver up to 235.4 MPG thanks to the efficiency of the electric engine, which needs no help from the petrol engine until it's going over 87mph.
It will come with four separate modes for different styles of driving. 'Auto Hybrid' mode is the main operating mode, which intelligently divides the electric and petrol engine up to ensure maximum efficiency. The 'Battery Hold' and 'Battery Charge' modes simply help to maintain your batteries charge up, by either using the petrol engine alone or alternating between the two as the electric battery reaches full capacity. Of course, the final mode is the 'EV' mode where you will be running entirely on the 37-mile battery alone.
The Audi A3 45 TFSI e S Line Competition comes with plenty of fancy technology as standard. The MMI Touch infotainment system and Audi Virtual Cockpit are standard. With other features such as sat nav, dual-zone climate control, front sports seats, twin leather upholstery and Audi Pre Sense systems being bundled in as well. On the exterior, you get the exclusive S Line styling that is complemented by heavily tinted privacy glass and 18-inch graphite alloy wheels with red brake calipers. The headlamps and taillights use LED technology as standard, but you can upgrade to Maxtrix LED headlamps that illuminate the road with more depth and precision, as well as getting dynamic cornering lighting.
