You’ll Have to Wait a Bit Longer for the 2016 Audi A3 e-tron Plugin

Fans of electric cars were really excited when Audi released information about their 2016 A3 e-tron plugin. The vehicle is supposed to provide effective hybrid performance that gives it ample power while keeping it pretty fuel efficient in the process. It’s equipped with a 204 HP engine, and is expected to travel from 0 to 60 in just 7.6 seconds. The little speedster will be able to hit 80 MPH in electric-only mode and tops out at 138 in hybrid mode. The car was originally announced back in April of 2014 at the New York Auto Show, and nobody has heard much about the vehicle since then. This is a bit troublesome, since it was originally scheduled for release in Summer of 2015. Now according to industry experts that release date is being pushed back a bit, and the car can be expected in the fall instead.


The proof

The website cites an Audi document that says when different new 2016 models will arrive in U.S. ports. There is no way to verify if the claim is real or not, but AutoSpies has provided reliable information in the past and it’s possible that the release date will fall in October.

The classy car sports a tiny plugin out front just behind the grille. It benefits from all the luxury of a standard A3, but performs more highly thanks to all the electric tech under the hood. It’s understandable that so many people are impatient for the vehicle to be released with such an interesting blend of features being a first for Audi.

If you’ve been waiting for one of the revolutionary vehicles you’ll have to continue waiting just a bit longer. If the vehicle does begin showing up in early October it will hit showrooms a couple weeks after that point and likely won’t be sold until you get into November. If you’d like to learn more information simply keep your eyes on local dealerships. As soon as the new cars start to come in they’ll make an announcement and you’ll have your chance to get in and see the new cars before they are sold in most areas around the country.
