The plug-in hybrid force hooked up in each fashions promises a machine output of one hundred eighty kW (245 PS), and each compact SUVs can cowl a distance of as much as sixty one km (37.nine mi) withinside the NEDC powered in simple terms through strength. In the WLTP, the gap is fifty one km (31.7 mi) for the Audi Q3 forty five TFSI e and 50 km (31.07 mi) for the Q3 Sportback forty five TFSI e. The Q3 forty five TFSI e expenses EUR 46,000 (along with 19 percentage VAT), the Q3 Sportback forty five TFSI e EUR 1,four hundred extra. Customers can declare a subsidy of EUR 6,750 in each cases.

The aggregate of an electric powered riding experience, easy charging, and excessive stage of suitability for normal use makes Audi's plug-in hybrid fashions specially appealing. The Q3 forty five TFSI e and the Q3 Sportback forty five TFSI e entire the variety of plug-in hybrids that Audi has introduced onto the marketplace for the reason that center of 2019. At the identical time, those compact SUVs mark step one into the sector of electrified Q fashions.

245 PS of machine output, thirteen kWh of strength capacity: the force and the battery

The Q3 fashions each encompass a 1.four TFSI because the combustion engine. This four-cylinder promises one hundred ten kW (a hundred and fifty PS). The force is finished through a completely excited synchronous machine (PSM), which affords eighty five KW of strength. The PSM is included withinside the housing of the six-pace S tronic collectively with the setting apart grab. This dual-grab transmission, which transfers the strength to the the front wheels, integrates an electric powered oil pump. This guarantees the deliver and as a consequence the feature of the clutches and with that the tools choice even if the TFSI engine is switched off.

Great riding delight and excessive efficiency - the powertrain of those new fashions gives each. The 1.four TFSI and the electrical motor collectively generate one hundred eighty kW of machine output (245 PS) and machine torque of four hundred Nm (295.02 lb-ft). Both the Audi Q3 forty five TFSI e and the Sportback take 7.three seconds to burst from zero to a hundred km/h (62.1 mph), and each attain a pinnacle pace of 210 km/h (130.five mph). In the New European Driving Cycle, the intake of the Q3 forty five TFSI e is 1.7 to 1.four liters of gasoline in line with a hundred km (138.four to US mpg) (39 to 32 grams of CO2 (62.eight to fifty one.five g/mi)). The Q3 Sportback forty five TFSI e facts the identical values of 1.7 to 1.four liters of gasoline in line with a hundred km (138.four to US mpg) (38 to 33 grams of CO2 (sixty one.2 to 53.1 g/mi)). The general variety carried out through each fashions is about 710 km (441.2 mi) - attesting to their first rate suitability for normal use.

The excessive-voltage battery is placed beneathneath the automobile ground in the front of the rear axle. Its ninety six prismatic cells keep kWh of strength. It owes this excessive price to the compact and comparatively light-weight battery of a brand new mobileular generation. The battery machine has its personal cooling circuit, which may be coupled to the air con machine's circuit to make certain powerful cooling even if necessities are at their highest.

Focus on efficiency: the force control machine

The force control machine of the compact SUV fashions is designed for excessive efficiency. Except in extraordinarily bloodless conditions, the SUVs are usually began out in electric powered mode. Both plug-in fashions can cowl as much as sixty one km (37.nine mi) with 0 neighborhood emissions withinside the NEDC (fifty one km (31.7 mi) for the Q3 and 50 km (31.07 mi) for the Q3 Sportback withinside the WLTP). The most pace they may be pushed at right here is one hundred forty km/h ( mph). At low speeds, the AVAS (Acoustic Vehicle Alert System) generates the legally prescribed e-sound to warn different street users.

In "Auto-Hybrid" mode, the principle running mode, the force control machine divides the responsibilities among the 1.four TFSI and the electrical motor intelligently and efficiently. The electric powered motor helps the four-cylinder engine in lots of situations, as an instance whilst passing. When accelerating from low rotational speeds, as an instance, it applies the excessive torque that it generates because of its running precept to bridge the few tenths of a 2nd that the turbocharger wishes to accumulate pressure - its deployment is imperceptible, however efficient. Drivers can prioritize electric powered force with the EV button. The force control machine continuously evaluates severa statistics points, along with the course statistics from the navigation machine and the statistics approximately the close to environment from the automobile sensors. This lets in it to discover whilst the automobile is drawing near a metropolis sign, a pace restriction or a roundabout, or getting too near the automobile ahead. When the foot is taken off the accelerator, the Audi Q3 forty five TFSI e and the Q3 Sportback forty five TFSI e begin to coast with the TFSI switched off in maximum situations.

The proper mode for the proper necessities: "Hold", "Charge" and dynamic

Regardless of the intelligence of the force control machine, the motive force usually stays in manage. By pushing the EV button, they are able to transfer among vehiclemobile hybrid and electric powered-powered riding, whilst a menu opens withinside the MMI running machine on the identical time that gives extra unique riding modes: "Battery Hold" and "Battery Charge". These serve to preserve the battery price on the modern-day stage or to growth the nation of price. What's extra, the motive force can have an effect on the person of the force the use of the Audi force pick out dynamic coping with machine. By deciding on the dynamic profile right here, placing the S tronic to "S", and floors the accelerator, they get the overall torque of the electrical motor of 330 Nm (243.four lb-ft) to be had to them for up to ten seconds. As quickly as they take their foot of the gas, the electrical motor switches to healing and recovers strength in generator mode. In this way, the automobile also can slow down speedy way to its electric powered motor.

Irrespective of the riding profile, each fashions usually recover whilst the motive force steps at the brakes. Up to round zero.three g - i.e. withinside the full-size majority of brake operations in normal riding - the electrical motor plays the deceleration alone. It is handiest whilst the brake pedal is carried out extra closely that the hydraulic wheel brakes come into play, activated through an electric powered brake servo. Thanks to the right blending, the transition is almost undetectable, and the healing stays active. During braking, the machine can get better as much as forty kW of strength thru the electrical motor and keep this withinside the battery.

With its balanced person, the suspension of the compact SUVs affords an remarkable associate for the force. The trendy Audi force pick out machine provides even extra aspects to the riding experience - because it accesses now no longer handiest the engines however additionally structures consisting of S tronic and strength steerage. In addition to dynamic mode, it additionally gives the consolation, vehiclemobile, and person profiles. The plug-in hybrids force on 17-inch alloy wheels as trendy, however wheels 18, 19 and 20 inches in diameter also are to be had as options. The frame of those SUVs is 10 mm (zero.four in) better than that of the Q3 fashions with traditional force structures - this means that the floor clearance stays the identical regardless of the duvet plate for the battery.

Fully charged in three h forty five min: charging at domestic and at the go

The Audi Q3 forty five TFSI e and the Q3 Sportback forty five TFSI e may be charged the use of alternating modern-day (AC) at a four hundred V socket with an output of three.6 kW. An empty battery may be recharged in three h forty five min the use of the usual strength charging cable on this way. The loose myAudi app lets in the purchaser to manipulate the charging, the timer and the pre-access weather manage remotely from their smartphone. Audi clients can select to deliver their residence and storage with strength from Volkswagen Naturstrom, that is generated absolutely from renewable sources. The compact plug-in hybrids require a style three cable for charging at public AC charging terminals. The e-tron Charging Service, which covers the bulk of nations in Europe, gives first rate comfort right here: With a unmarried card, the purchaser profits get entry to to extra than 155,000 charging points.

Sporty and versatile: layout and indoors

Both the brand new Q3 fashions provoke with a effective and sporty stance at the street. The indoors is beneficiant and variable. The the front seats provide remarkable consolation and a sporty seating function. The rear seats may be moved lengthwise as trendy; their backrests are divided into 3 sections and recline at seven special angles. The baggage compartment has a primary quantity of 380 l (thirteen.four cu ft), which will increase to 1,375 l (48.6 cu ft) withinside the Q3 forty five TFSI e and 1,250 l (44.1 cu ft) withinside the Q3 Sportback forty five TFSI e whilst the seats are folded down. As an option, Audi will supply an electric powered tailgate that also can be opened with a foot motion.

Two presentations shape the idea of the running and show concept. The MMI contact with a 10.1 inch display takes up a primary function withinside the device panel and presentations the strength flows of the hybrid force and extra. The driving force can appearance both at a virtual device cluster or on the Audi digital cockpit, that is to be had in sizes. A powermeter presentations the machine's output, the fame of the force, the healing, the battery's nation of price, and the variety. Many features may be operated thru a natural-language voice manage as a similarly enter stage, which additionally gives the choice of getting access to the understanding of the cloud.

Highly networked: Audi join

Together with the one of the best MMI Navigation plus infotainment machine as an option, the net offerings of Audi join also can be accessed on board. They encompass the Car-to-X offerings, which employ the precept of swarm intelligence: Information on roadside parking spaces, hazards, pace limits and site visitors mild levels is exchanged thru the networking of the Audi fleet. The myAudi app tightly connects the automobile with the purchaser's smartphone. Hardware modules consisting of the Audi telecellsmartphone container and the Bang & Olufsen Premium Sound System with digital 3-D sound entire the infotainment program.

The driving force help structures come from the top rate class. They encompass the adaptive cruise help (optional), which assists the motive force with longitudinal and lateral manage - considerably improving consolation on lengthy trips in particular. In order to preserve lateral guidance, the motive force wishes to use only a mild contact to the capacitive steerage wheel, that is a part of the machine, to show that they're paying attention. The Audi pre feel the front, lane departure warning, flip help, and swerve help structures come as trendy.

Prices from EUR 46,000: The plug-in Q3 may be ordered from January 2021
