WhatCar? reviews editor, Vicky Parrott, explains why the Audi A3 Sportback e-tron has been named WhatCar?’s Best electric car
The performance and looks of an Audi. The efficiency and low emissions of electric. The Audi A3 Sportback e-tron balances all these qualities and more within its distinctive, 5-door design.
The result is a plug-in hybrid that offers exceptional economy for everyday driving, but is just as capable on the longest drives. It switches intelligently between the electric motor and petrol engine, which means you’ll fill up much less often – and make the most of every drop of fuel you put in. In fact, it delivers an impressive 176.6mpg.
The A3 Sportback e-tron can even operate as a fully electric car on shorter journeys, thanks to its high-storage lithium-ion battery. And with an 8-year battery warranty as standard*, you can be confident it will continue to perform as you’d expect, long into the future.
