Because it’s an EV!!
This is the first sighting for me of the Audi A3 e-Tron plug-in hybrid car. I was surprised to learn they start at $38,900 which is pretty decent for an Audi which one expects to be very pricey compared to an equivalent car from a regular auto maker.
I see Audi have chosen to put the plug at the front of the car like the LEAF. It hides nicely behind the front four circle emblem.
I have seen a wide variety of EV’s at work recently. Here’s a list of what I have spotted.
|Audi A3 e-TRon||PHEV|
|Ford CMax Energi||PHEV|
|Ford Fusion Energi||PHEV|
|Tesla Model S||BEV|
|Tesla Model X||BEV|
|Toyota RAV4 EV||BEV|
I regret not taking a photo of the RAV4 EV, it was bought locally from Carvana, so I might see it again one day. If you are in the market for a second hand EV, buy it from Carvana, they have quite a good stock of EV’s and sell them for less than Carmax.
