AUDI A3 E-TRON

Daily Express - - TOTAL EV -

PRICE: £33,430 Like the Golf GTE, the Audi e-tron flies un­der the radar by look­ing just like any other car in the A3 range.

But put the logo on its bon­net to one side and be­hind it you’ll find a plug which can top up the bat­tery to al­low own­ers to travel 29 miles on elec­tric only.

Keep it well-charged and the e-tron is one of the most seam­less hy­brids, pro­vid­ing smooth, quiet mo­tor­ing and low run­ning costs. How­ever, it is let down by the 1.4-litre petrol en­gine, which is thirsty when the bat­tery is low and it’s left to pick up the bur­den.
