Combining the joy of driving a new Audi with sustainability is something the automaker has been busy working on. Two family lines, the "g-tron" and the "e-tron," have been developed to help increase fuel economy without decreasing driving fun, engine power, or vehicle performance. Let's take a look at some of the vehicles that have accomplished this.
The e-tron family looks to promote electrics into the engine, either as a hybrid or an all-electric without an reliance on traditional fuel. One of the all-electric-drive vehicles that has been blowing people out of the water is the Audi R18 e-tron Quattro. With two electric motors supplying power to the rear wheels, the R18 can blast out an incredible 375 horsepower and 604 lb-ft of torque, with a 0-62 mph time of merely 4.2 seconds. While the "all-electric" signifier doesn't make many think of "powerful," this vehicle does nothing but completely deny that stereotype. And we love it.
Another is the Audi A3 Sportback e-tron. The A3 e-tron is a hybrid and it does not disappoint. With the help of a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery located ahead of the front axle, it can achieve 204 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque with a very small CO2 footprint. And, with a 0-62 mph time of 7.6 seconds, it doesn't skimp on the speed.
