Audi is continuing its electrification offensive in the compact class: Advance sales of the A3 Sportback 45 TFSI begin this week in Germany. The brand with the four rings is thus providing the A3 Sportback 40 TFSI e with a sporty model - with more power and extensive equipment. Its plug-in hybrid drive offers 180 kW (245 hp) system output and 400 Nm system torque. Like its sister model, the new A3 Sportback 45 TFSI e uses a 1.4-liter as its combustion engine. It delivers 110 kW (150 hp) and 250 Nm of torque. The electric drive is provided by a permanently excited synchronous machine delivering 80 kW and 330 Nm. The higher system output of 30 kW (41 hp) and 50 Nm torque compared with the A3 40 TFSI e3 is generated by control software: it regulates the optimum interaction of both drives at maximum power demand. The electric motor supplements the combustion engine in the appropriate speed ranges. The electric motor is integrated into the housing of the six-speed S tronic transmission, which transmits the power to the front wheels. In the lithium-ion battery, a pack of 96 prismatic cells stores 13.0 kWh of energy. The A3 Sportback 45 TFSI e charges with a maximum power of 2.9 kW. An empty battery can be refilled in about five hours at a standard household outlet.
