New hybrid Audi to be on display

Audi has announced that it will be previewing a new gasoline-electric hybrid wagon at the 2013 Geneva motor show. The car is called the A3 E-Tron and will feature 201 hp gasoline-electric power plant. Audi says that the new hybrid vehicle is a glimpse into its future automobiles.

The A3 hatchback uses a modified version of the Volkswagen EA211 1.4-liter four-cylinder direct-injection gasoline engine producing 148 hp. The car has an electric motor mounted to its six-speed dual clutch gearbox developing up to 101 horsepower. Combined the electric and gasoline engines provide 201 hp and 258 pound-foot of torque.

Audi says that the powertrain is capable of operating in three modes including engine only, electric motor only, and combined. Details on the battery pack for the vehicle are unavailable so we don't know how long it needs to charge or how long the vehicle can go on battery power alone. The car is able to hit 62 mph in 7.6 seconds and has a top speed of 138 mph.

Mob Rules: Watch A Quintet of BMW M235i Coupes Take Urban Drifting to A New Level [Video]

Jul 31 2014 2:20pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Drifting in heavily populated urban areas can be difficult for a novice: You’ve got to find shelter from the weather, procure a can of beans, and single out a few tolerant citizens to panhandle from, all while keeping an eye out for the man. BMW, on the other hand, has the clout to drift with impunity. By shutting down a small section of public roads with the full cooperation of the authorities, the a ...
