The Audi Q3 range will have a plug-in hybrid as a car leasing choice.
For those drivers wanting a stylish and compact SUV as a plug-in hybrid, then the Audi Q3 45 TFSI e could be for you.
The new offering will go on sale next Spring and will also be available as a car leasing opportunity.
It's taking on the likes of the Volvo XC40 Recharge T5, which is also a great contract hire car.
Audi's new hybrid will use a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine with four cylinders, along with a 13kWh lithium-ion battery and a 114bhp electric motor.
The combined output for the SUV is an impressive 242bhp with torque of 400Nm.
The all-electric range for the Audi Q3 45 TFSI e is 31 miles at speeds of up to 87mph.
While Audi has yet to reveal the car's emissions and economy figures, the 0 to 62mph sprint time is 7.3 seconds and the SUV has a top speed of 130 mph.
Every model will come with a Type 2 charging cable so the battery will be recharged in less than four hours.
The new powertrain is also offered for the Q3 Sportback and there are four trim levels to choose from.
The equipment for the Q3 plug-in hybrid contract hire car includes LED headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 10.1-inch infotainment display and there's a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster.
Opt for the S line, and the Q3 comes with 19-inch alloy wheels, a dashboard featuring piano black trim inlays and there's rear privacy glass.
There are also some styling tweaks including a rear diffuser, side skirts and a new front bumper.
The top model is the Vorsprung which features adaptive dampers, a panoramic glass sunroof, Matrix LED headlights and 20-inch alloy wheels.
Options include electric seats, a larger 12.3-inch display and a top-end stereo system.
There's a lot to like about the new Audi Q3 TFSI e PHEV as a car leasing opportunity and the deals should be checked out on the Tilsun Leasing website when the car appears in showrooms.
Green Cars’ is the term used for zero, low and ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs) - with pressure being applied to lower global emission levels, the need for “eco-friendly” vehicles is on the rise. Many countries now have plans in place to abolish the use of combustion engines before the turn of the century and so more and more vehicles we see on the roads will be Electric, hybrid or very low emission petrol and diesels.
Although beneficial to the environment, ‘Green Cars’ are also beneficial from a taxation view. The lower a vehicle’s emissions banding, the lower the taxation placed against it. Many manufacturers have tapped in to this ever-growing market with their own offerings, however, Volvo were the first manufacturer to state that every one of their models will be either electric or hybrid options from 2019.
