Audi A3: The most powerful electric car in the world
Audi A4, the all-electric sports car that launched this summer, has a 1,900-horsepower (1,600kW) V8 engine and 0-60mph (0-100km/h) in 5.7 seconds, according to a new study.
That’s not quite the fastest speed for a fully electric car, but the A4 is much more powerful than a diesel, and much more affordable than a gasoline-powered model, according to Alfa Romeo Automobiles.
That’s what makes it so appealing.
The new study, published in the journal Transport Research Letters, found the Audi A2, A3 and A4 are the best-selling cars in the U.S. with a combined sales of just under 1 million each, with a total of 4 million vehicles worldwide.
“This research is a step forward, but still very early,” said Alfa Romeo CEO Sergio Marchionne.
“Our goal is to create an electric car that is as affordable and practical as possible.
Our customers have given us their trust and we’re hoping that by sharing this information, the public will learn more about electric cars and how they can be used to help us deliver on our promise to deliver an affordable electric car to the masses.”
“The Audi A1, the fastest electric car ever, is a car we all know and love, but its only just now being made available to the public,” said Marchionnes CEO Stefano Domenicali.
“This research shows that the A1 is more affordable and can be easily installed on new vehicles.
It will become the standard for the masses and the electric vehicle will become a reality.”
The A4 and A3 are the only three models in the Audi family to have a V8, and the new study found that Audi models with the highest output of the V8s have been the most popular with consumers.
The Audi A6, A7 and A8 are the other two models that have a big V8 but also a small gasoline engine.
To test the new research, the researchers tested the performance of all three electric cars on four different types of roads, and found that the most efficient electric car on each test was the Audi S4, which is the Audi Quattro.
This is a bit of a surprise to some people, since the Audi RS5 and RS6, the two electric models with a smaller gasoline engine, have been selling well for the last few years.
As for how many people own electric cars, the new A4 model has the highest share of owners with an estimated 7.7% of total U.K. car owners in the 2023-25 year period.
In the U, where the new car is based, there were more than 2.5 million electric vehicles registered in the first quarter of 2019, according the U-K.
The new report comes as Audi has been pushing to make the new cars more fuel-efficient by increasing the size of the batteries that power them.
Audi says it has reduced the battery size in the A3 from 13.6 kWh to 9.1 kWh, which should make it much easier for the A5 to compete with other electric cars.
Volkswagen is a big fan of the new engines and says the car will reach 60 mph in 7.6 seconds and will have a top speed of 155 mph.
The new car will be priced at around £29,000 ($37,000).
