Audi hasn't had the best of luck with their hybrid and electric vehicles, but that isn't going to stop them from introducing an A3 plug-in hybrid at the Geneva Motor Show.

Audi hasn't had the best of luck with their hybrid and electric vehicles, but that isn't going to stop them from introducing an A3 plug-in hybrid at the Geneva Motor Show.

Autobild says the model will be based on the A3 Sportback and feature a turbocharged 2.0-liter petrol engine, an electric motor and an 8 kWh lithium-ion battery. This setup could enable the model to have a combined output of approximately 237 HP (174 kW). Furthermore, the car is expected to average 2.0 l/100km (117.6 mpg US / 141.2 mpg UK) and have a 50 km (31 miles) electric-only range.

Pricing is expected to start at roughly €35,000 with an eye-watering €11,600 premium over the standard model.
