For now, Audi seems to be more interested in introducing plug-in hybrids then all-electrics, because the automaker strongly believes that the PHEV setup eliminatescompromises.

The A3 E-Tron, which will be available in U.S. in 2015, was recently shown at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. The price still remains an uknown at this time, but with reviews trickling in, we start to get a sense of what to expect from Audi's first US-bound plug in.

Here's the video description uploaded by Translogic:

"We get an early drive of Audi's first plug-in vehicle for the U.S. market, the A3 Sportback E-Tron PHEV. Part of Audi's all-new A3 lineup, the Sportback E-Tron boasts an estimated electric driving range of about 30 miles at speeds up to 80 miles per hour. Does Audi's first ever production E-Tron deliver the same performance and technology that the luxury German automaker has become known for? Watch to find out!"
