The A3 e-Tron has an available ‘e-tron plus’ option package that includes a charging dock, a cable for public charging points, MMI navigation plus, Audi connect and phone box.
The Sportback e-Tron is priced at €37,900 in Germany, and is also available for lease at €319 a month for 36 months. In Germany, Audi also has an interesting program called ‘Audi Energy’. The program allows owners of the e-tron to purchase environmentally friendly electricity. All electricity in the Audi Energy program comes from hydroelectric power stations in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. There was no indication of whether or not there is a cost involved to be part of Audi Energy.
