Audi displayed a sedan concept in China at the 2011 Shanghai Auto Show named the A3 e-tron.

The four-seater takes it chassis design from the RS 3 Sportback and aims to demonstrate an Audi sedan which is both sporty and fuel efficient. Its body measures 4.44 meters long, 1.84 meters wide and 1.39 meters high and features a frame made of carbon fibre-reinforced polymer (CFRP) and ‘floating’ LED headlights. The A3 e-tron’s curb weight is 1,720 kilograms.

On the inside, the A3 e-tron is claimed to feature ample room thanks to its 2.63 meter wheelbase. Styling is minimalist and standout features include airplane turbine-style vents, a multifunction steering wheel, infotainment system with eight-inch display and internet connectivity, iPad holders and a 410 litre luggage compartment.

The A3 e-tron is designed to be a plug-in hybrid and features a 155 kW 1.4 TFSI four-cylinder turbocharged engine and a 20 kW electric motor. When working together the A3 e-tron can crack 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds and motor onto a top speed of 231 km/h. However the electric motor can also fly solo giving a range of up to 54 km. Power output can be monitored via a 3D display located where the tachometer would normally be, allowing the driver to know exactly where the e-tron is drawing its power from.   

The engine hooks into a seven-speed, dual clutch S tronic gearbox which can be operated either in automatic mode or via steering wheel mounted paddles. Other highlights are a five-way Audi drive select handling system, launch control and 20 inch alloy wheels.
