The 3 millionth Audi A3 Rolls off the Assembly Line

3 millionth A3 was a Sportback

Audi has announced that the 3 millionth A3 rolled off the assembly line last week. Audi says that the A3 is available in 117 countries and the first A3 was built 17 years ago. The 3 millionth car was a white Audi A3 Sportback 2.0 TDI quattro.

“Three million automobiles in the compact class are quite a performance,” said Dr. Frank Dreves, Board of Management Member for Production at AUDI AG. “This success is backed by a strong team and an efficient production system. With the Audi A3, we have created a new brand segment – we have been setting standards in the compact class with innovative technology and first-class quality for 17 years now.”

“Since the middle of the nineties, the Audi A3 has become an important second pillar of our main plant in Ingolstadt, and thus makes a crucial contribution to the sustained protection of jobs at that site,” pointed out Peter Mosch, Chairman of the Group Works Council of AUDI AG. “Thanks in particular to the commitment and passion of our workforce, we have been able to write this success story.”

Audi Allroad

Aug 28 2014 5:34am CDT | Source: The Car Connection

The Audi Allroad is a ruggedized version of the Audi A4 Avant wagon, a vehicle that hasn't been offered for sale in the U.S. in the current generation of compact Audi sedans. Instead, the Allroad pitches itself as a sensible SUV alternative, not quite a crossover either--that role is filled by the Audi Q5. Think of it as a wagon replac ...

Car Review: Cadillac ELR

Aug 27 2014 7:36pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

General Motors has been exploring alternative fuel vehicles for a very long time. So when the company released the Chevrolet Volt in 2012, it came as no surprise how well designed and well thought out this clever commuter car was. After all, it had been designed to bring the plug-in hybrid concept to the masses. Unfortunately, for some, the Volt fell short on style and social cachet. To remedy this, GM has now released the Cadillac ELR, a plug-in hybrid coupe a ...

10 Green Cars that Don’t Suck: Eco-Excellence at All Price Points

Aug 27 2014 5:19pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Mix pious intentions with dreary mechanical bits and then stir in some driving misery, and the result is a “green car.” Green not in the color of its paint, but in the environmental virtue of its engineering and marketing. Green as in economical with fuel but stingy on fun, great with emissions but lousy to pilot. Green cars are hybrids, diesels, and electric cars stripped to the point of making a rot ...

Connected Utility Vehicles: Chevy Adds Wireless Charging, 4G LTE to Suburban and Tahoe

Aug 27 2014 4:03pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The 2015 Tahoe gets some techy new options this fall. A burbdozer with a V-8 may not be the predominant family vehicle of choice anymore, but Chevrolet still makes a heavy margin on its Tahoe and Suburban SUVs. As such, it behooves GM to keep refining the tech plowed into what’s fundamentally a mid-twentieth-century design. The latest additions to the stalwart duo? OnStar with 4G LTE connectivity, plus wireless mobile-phone charging. GM had already ...

Dear John: I’m looking for a ‘sporty’ compact crossover

Aug 27 2014 3:09pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Industry experts think the compact crossover segment will replace the compact car class as the most popular with Canadian new car buyers sooner rather than later. Some obvious reasons are the extra interior room and readily available all-wheel-drive (AWD) that crossovers enjoy over their car counterparts. But you could also include the wide variety of models as a big factor, too. Which is why this month’s Dear Joh ...
