Audi also revealed that the A3 E-tron is likely to cost around 38,000 when it goes on sale in Europe, which is 32,500.
E-tron technician Oscar da Silva Martins, said: 'The E-tron will sit in the range as its own trim level, and will get a good level of standard kit.
'The latest MMI system is standard along with the panoramic sunroof. The paint, wheels and interior will all be customisable.'
