1st place finish for Audi A3 Sportback g-tron in Auto Bild continuation test

The tip ranking of a Audi A3 Sportback g-tron (CNG expenditure in kg/100 km: 3.6 – 3.3*; combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 5.5 – 5.1* (42.8 – 46.1 US mpg); sum CO2 emissions in g/km (CNG): 98 – 89* (157.7 – 143.2 g/mi); sum CO2 emissions in g/km (gasoline): 128 – 117* (206.0 – 188.3 g/mi) ) in a continuation exam conducted by automotive announcement Auto Bild resulted from a editors’ day-to-day knowledge with a indication and their dimensions values, a trustworthiness of a exam car, and not least, a final investigation that enclosed disassembly of a automobile and complete evaluations of all tools and components by technical experts. In a end, a reward compress indication and a CNG expostulate came out on tip in a continuation exam ranking, that Auto Bild editors have been conducting for many years. Since 1986, a year a repository was founded, a sum of 246 automobiles from several automakers have been subjected to a test, that customarily covers 100,000 kilometers (62,137.1 mi).

“The outcome of this continuation exam not usually shows that we build advanced, arguable cars – it also substantiates a peculiarity of a innovative Audi g-tron expostulate and all of a components,” said Werner Zimmermann, Head of Quality Assurance during AUDI AG, about a superb performance.

The Audi A3 Sportback g-tron (CNG expenditure in kg/100 km: 3.6 – 3.3*; sum fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 5.5 – 5.1* (42.8 – 46.1 US mpg); sum CO2 emissions in g/km (CNG): 98 – 89* (157.7 – 143.2 g/mi); sum CO2 emissions in g/km (gasoline): 128 – 117* (206.0 – 188.3 g/mi)), that done a marketplace entrance in Apr 2014, is powered by a bivalent 1.4 TFSI engine. It delivers 81 kW (110 hp) of appetite and can run on gasoline, hoary healthy gas (CNG) and renewable Audi e-gas. To capacitate a four-cylinder engine to run on these fuels, Audi engineers mutated a cylinder head, turbocharging, fuel injection complement and catalytic converter.

Under a five-door model’s luggage cell building are dual additional tanks that any store around 7 kilograms of gas during a vigour of 200 bar. They revoke luggage space only marginally and are assembled from a combination material, creation them really lightweight.

With Audi e-gas, a A3 Sportback g-tron (CNG expenditure in kg/100 km: 3.6 – 3.3*; sum fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 5.5 – 5.1* (42.8 – 46.1 US mpg); sum COemissions in g/km (CNG): 98 – 89* (157.7 – 143.2 g/mi); sum CO2 emissions in g/km (gasoline): 128 – 117* (206.0 – 188.3 g/mi)) is really climate-friendly on a road. The synthetic fuel is constructed regulating renewable appetite from H2O and CO2 or from organic residual materials like straw and plant clippings. During a production, Audi e-gas binds accurately the amount of CO2 issued by a car. Audi and a partners are producing e-gas with several processes and comforts in Germany as good as in a series of other European countries. The brand is therefore personification a pivotal purpose as a pushing force behind a appetite transition in mobility.

Audi is providing business who sequence their A3 Sportback g-tron (CNG expenditure in kg/100 km: 3.6 – 3.3*; sum fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 5.5 – 5.1* (42.8 – 46.1 US mpg); combined CO2 emissions in g/km (CNG): 98 – 89*** (157.7 – 143.2 g/mi); sum CO2 emissions in g/km (gasoline): 128 – 117* (206.0 – 188.3 g/mi)) by May 31, 2018, with access to their supply of this fuel for 3 years as partial of a customary package – and these business will compensate usually a unchanging cost for CNG during a fueling station. By feeding the calculated volume of Audi e-gas into a healthy gas grid, Audi is operative to safeguard a analogous rebate of CO2 emissions. The German contrast and investigation classification TÜV Süd is certifying this balancing method.

The e-gas offer also relates to a Audi A4 Avant g-tron (CNG expenditure in kg/100 km: 4.4 – 3.8*; sum fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 6.5 – 5.5* (36.2 – 42.8 US mpg); sum CO2 emissions in g/km (CNG): 117 – 102* (188.3 – 164.2 g/mi); sum CO2 emissions in g/km: 147 – 126* (236.6 – 202.8 g/mi)) and Audi A5 Sportback g-tron (CNG expenditure in kg/100 km: 4.3 – 3.8*; sum fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 6.4 – 5.6* (36.8 – 42.0 US mpg); sum CO2 emissions in g/km (CNG): 115 – 102* (185.1 – 164.2 g/mi); sum CO2 emissions in g/km (gasoline): 144 – 126* (231.7 – 202.8 g/mi)) models, additions to a g-tron swift that can be systematic commencement in early summer of 2017. Compared to a gasoline-powered automobile in a same opening class, a Audi g-tron models furnish 80 percent reduction CO2 emissions**.

** In pristine e-gas mode (CNG) in a well-to-wheel research (a life cycle comment that includes a fuel prolongation and normal pushing of a vehicle) in comparison to a Audi A3 Sportback 1.4 TFSI with 110 kW: As a g-tron customer, we can fill adult your tank during any CNG fueling station. AUDI AG ensures that Audi e-gas will reinstate a volume of gas used, formed on calculations according to a NEDC/ WLTP authorised standards for measuring fuel expenditure and emissions, and on statistical information frequently collected by Audi to establish a annual mileage of Audi g-tron vehicles systematic between Mar 7, 2017 and May 31, 2018. This will be in outcome for 3 years, commencement with registration of a new vehicles. The Audi e-gas is fed into a European healthy gas network, so replacing hoary healthy gas. The CO2 assets (also dynamic on this basis) might be less, depending on tangible pushing character and use. To find out more, visit audi.com/g-tron.
