The Audi A3 e-Tron is another plug-in hybrid electric car with a bit of a sporty offering. The electric-only range is not spectacular, but is at least better than the Toyota Prius Plug-in! It can go from 0 to 60 mph in a respectable 7.5 seconds. It has also landed a difficult 5 stars in Europe’s safety ratings. The A3 e-tron has a tough time competing with the Chevy Volt and Ford Energi models on value for the money, but some clearly prefer the e-Tron’s looks and the Audi brand. As expected, the A3 e-tron is not widely available, which provides it with the “compliance car” label. You can read my review of the A3 e-tron here.
