Electric Mobility Showcase to include forty Audi A3 Sportback e-tron units

Audi has announced the Electric Mobility Showcase will feature no less than forty units of the Audi A3 Sportback e-tron. This is a support program in which the fleet will embark on three different projects about electric driving on public roads. Last Saturday, Ulrich Hackenberg presented all forty cars to the testers at the Audi Training Center in Munich in the presence of Secretary of State Rainer Bomba from the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure.

15 units of the Audi A3 Sportback e-tron will be used to commute between home and the test participants’ workplace in an urban area while 10 of the cars are going to be used for emphasizing the publicly accessible charging points in the city. The remaining 15 cars will be used in private households as well as for delivery services.

The aforementioned Electric Mobility Showcase support program is the result of a joint initiative of the automotive industry and the German government. The main objective is to turn the country into the lead market and leading provider of electric mobility. Each year, the projects conducted receive cross-departmental support from the Federal Ministries of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, Economic Affairs and Energy, Education and Research, and Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety.

Back in 2012, Audi provided the A1 e-tron for several Electric Mobility Showcase projects in Berlin, Munich, Stuttgart, Nuremberg, Ingolstadt and Garmisch?Partenkirchen.
