2013 Audi A3 Sportback TCNG e-gas project

Audi A3 Sportback TCNG

Audi has exposed its 2013 A3 Sportback in Munich ahead of the model's official first appearance at the 2012 Paris Motor Show in this week. Like its three-door cousin, the third-generation five-door would wear slightly progressed design in and out as well as a longer wheelbase, more internal space and a extensive weight savings of around 198 pounds over its predecessor. This particular design would wear the line's optionally available LED headlamps and provides a bi-fuel powertrain as aspect of the Audi e-Gas project. The work out uses electrolysis to produce hydrogen, which is then combined with co2 to make methane, or organic gas. The outcome is what Audi is calling a "carbon-neutral" fuel.

Since compressed organic gas stations can be few and far between, however, the A3 also creates use of a 13-gallon gasoline container to help perform an effective range of around 745 miles. The 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine provides injectors for both organic gas and gasoline and can easily change between the two fuels while driving.
