Audi comes clean on A3 pilot program, electric coming to four US cities

to get back into the EV game your MINI E got sent to the mothership? If you didn’t hop on the BMW Group’s electric trial, the 1 Series-based how about giving a shake to a car its rival in Ingolstadt. At the TED2012 Audi just confirmed plans to lease its electrified the A3 e-tron. Just like time we espied it, the electric will have a top speed of and rather languid 0-60 of eleven seconds.

No word on though, but those serious on the pilot will have to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington DC or home. That quartet of represents a diverse range of which it’ll use to gleam real-world data for future endeavors. We’re not entirely how we feel about possibly to be a transportation guinea-pig, but can you really say no to red-lined rims? Us neither.

Audi at TED2012 U.S. Introduction of A3 e-tron Vehicle Pilot Program

— Audi battery-electric in-market program debuts in

— Research-based A3 e-tron program to serve as a learning for next-gen Audi EV applications wide

— At TED, engages attendees in a progressive about urban mobility and The 2.0 with the A3 e-tron and Audi A2 vehicle

Audi today the battery-electric Audi A3 e-tron program in the U.S. to define a e-mobility driver experience for car buyers. Audi made the of the engineering-based pilot program for the A3 today at TED2012 in Long Calif. where Audi is a vision for the role transportation play in the world’s increasingly urban centers of the future.

The A3 pilot program marks the step by Audi into the U.S. electric vehicle which is a central component of the expected at the Audi Social at TED2012.

At TED2012, Audi to spark a progressive dialogue the role transportation will in the global megacities of the future.

Elements of Audi balanced initiatives will provide a for the interactive Social Space and conversation on future urban and how to achieve CO2 neutrality across the chain. Initiatives include: the A2 concept EV that features built specifically for the megacity of the like traffic-friendly piloted technologies for stop-and-go congestion; the e-gas project, which offshore wind turbines to clean power for the production of hydrogen and methane; and futuristic designed by partner architects of the Urban Future Initiative.

A3 e-tron, a global debut

a new electric dimension to driving the Audi A3 e-tron pilot will allow Audi to challenges and opportunities with vehicles as progressive luxury car become increasingly receptive to EV By studying e-tron use across geographical regions, Audi monitor the effect of climate driving patterns and energy and use insight gained in the final of future EV technology applications.

With the A3 e-tron pilot Audi engineers and technical will explore EVs in a real setting and monitor in real-time how technology operates in everyday The pilot will run throughout the and provide actionable feedback and data to Audi engineering in the U.S. and Germany. This follows the Audi philosophy of innovation by introducing fully alternative technology to ensure no are needed by Audi owners.

The A3 pilot program serves as an innovation platform for Audi to greater insight into vehicles and how American driving affect use of the progressive technology in life, said Jeff e-mobility and sustainability strategy at Audi of America. We will the data generated from program into the launch of a of Audi e-tron models for drivers.

Audi e-tron

The e-tron name that an advanced electrified train with a plug-in is onboard. As a core philosophy of Audi engineers are researching power concepts tailored to vehicle types and driving including full battery-electric plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and range electric (EREV) The goal is to have the right for the market at the right time the solution for the individual requirements of customers.

Audi e-tron becomes the entry to Audi’s stable of technologies, including Audi lightweight construction, Audi clean diesel, Audi navigation and infotainment and Audi’s quattro® all-wheel drive.

on the award-winning Audi A3, currently to U.S. consumers in gasoline-powered and diesel TDI configurations, the Audi A3 features a fully electric with a 26kw lithium-ion and zero driving emissions. a sporty driving dynamic, A3 e-tron has 199 lb-ft torque, a range of approximately 90 miles and a top of 90 mph all while retaining the full space and versatility of the A3.

Audi is working on standardizing peripheral that have to be taken consideration for wide spread EV and use, including driving the in 2011 of common global for charging. As part of the pilot Audi will develop its of infrastructure partners, test services and create partnerships will be central to providing the Audi experience for e-tron
