The Top Electric and Hybrid Vehicles Changing The Luxury Market

Audi A3 Sportback e-Tron


Audi’s entry to the Hybrid marketplace comes in the form of this redesigned A3. Hitting dealerships with a relatively low price point of around $40,000 for the base model, this luxury hybrid is in direct competition with the Chevy Volt and BMW’s i3. The hatchback design is both sporty and practical, while the 1.4 liter DOHC engine and electric drivetrain push this car from zero to sixty in 7.4 seconds. While the A3 Sportback e-Tron doesn’t try to compete with the ultra-luxury vehicles, its modest price combined with Audi styling, make this hybrid a surprising competitor for those looking to enter the hybrid market on a budget.
