Audi A3 Sportback G-tron With Bi-Fuel Power Revealed

Audi has unveiled another variant of the new A3 Sportback, called the g-tron, which will debut next week at the Geneva Motor Show along with the A3 e-tron plug-in hybrid.

The A3 Sportback g-tron is powered by a modified 110bhp 1.4 TFSI engine with 200 Nm of torque. The car can drive on petrol or Audi’s carbon-natural compressed natural gas called e-gas. 0-62 mph comes in 11 seconds and the top speed is 118 mph with both fuels.

There are two tanks under the luggage compartment floor, each holding seven kilograms of CNG at a maximum 200 bar pressure.

The CNG provides a range of around 248 miles, with petrol providing another 560 miles, for a total range of more than 800 miles.

The CO2-neutral e-gas from Audi’s Werlte plant will provide enough gas for around 1,500 vehicles to travel around 9,320 miles every year.
