Audi A3 Sportback TFSI e home charging guide

The Audi A3 Sportback TFSI e is the name for the long-awaited refresh of the very popular A3 e-tron released back in 2016. Equipped with a new 13kWh battery, the A3 Sportback TFSI e shares the same combination of performance (0-62 mph is still 7.6 seconds), economy and practicality that made its predecessor popular, but with an improved all-electric range of up to 41 miles.
Charging the Audi A3 Sportback TFSI e takes about four-and-a-half hours when using a dedicated 7.4kW home charger - perfect for taking advantage of off-peak electricity prices. There is no DC rapid charging available on the A3 e-tron, but the petrol engine means long journeys won't be a problem.
