Audi to release fully electric A3

According to media reports, Audi will only offer its compact A3 model in pure electric form for the next generation due in 2027, as part of its accelerated electric vehicle course.

As reported by Auto Motor und Sport, the new A3 e-tron will be based on the Volkswagen Group’s Scalable Systems Platform (SSP) with unit battery cells. There will probably not be an e-model in the “classic” compact car layout based on the MEB from the Ingolstadt manufacturers.

In August last year, Audi boss Markus Duesmann presented the ‘Vorsprung 2030′ strategy. This stated once again that from 2026 onwards new models would only be launched with electric drive and that the production of combustion engines would be phased out gradually by 2033. Accordingly, it is only logical that the 2027 generation of the Audi A3 will only be available as an electric car.

According to Auto Motor und Sport, the electric A3 will be based on the Scalable Systems Platform (SSP). VW presented this last year as part of its ‘New Auto’ strategy. VW gave only few key data on the SSP. As Audi boss Markus Duesmann, who also heads group research, stated, an “800 Volt Flex” system is to become standard for the mechatronic platform. The first vehicle based on the SSP is to come onto the market in 2026. From then on, “all important future models” are to be based on this platform – with outputs from 85 to 850 kW and for all brands and models.
