Audi A3 e-tron home charging guide

The plug-in hybrid version of the Audi A3 Sportback family car is an excellent combination of performance (0-62 mph in 7.6 seconds), economy and practicality. In fact, the Audi A3 PHEV offers around 20 miles of pure electric range which is perfect for short-distance journeys.

Charging the Audi A3 e-tron PHEV takes just under three hours when using a dedicated 7.4kW home charger. Although, most of the time you will just need to "top up" the car's battery so charging times should be shorter. There is no rapid charging available on the A3 e-tron, but the petrol engine means long journeys won't be a problem.
