Audi A3 e-Tron

Everyone’s going green, and car makers are no exception. Audi has just shown off their latest green vehicle called the Audio A3 e-Tron. Powered completely by electricity (like the Nissan LEAF), the Audi A3 e-Tron is based on the Sportback version of the A3 and is touted to provide an acceleration of 0-60mph in 11.2 seconds, with a top speed of 90mph. It is powered by a 300kg lithium-ion battery pack and provides 26.5kWh of energy at 380 volts. Recharging takes 9 hours on a 230V socket but if you can find a 400V socket it will only take half the time. No word on when this green vehicle will hit the streets or how much it will be priced, but expect it to be soon if Audi wants to be one of the forerunners in the electric car race.
