Travelling a total of 3,543 km from Darwin to Adelaide, the official results published by the organisers saw the new A3 1.9 TDI e achieve an average result of 3.3l/100km. At times, fuel consumption dropped as low as 2.6l/100km on the journey. Average C02 emissions were just 98g/km.

The A3 Sportback 1.9 TDI e was presented to the public in Australia for the first time at the Australian International Motor Show on 11 October 2007. It will go on sale in Australia later this year.

This is a bit late but worth a mention anyway. 3.3L/100km in the old money is 85 miles per UK gallon. Whichever way you look at it the numbers are impressive for a production vehicle.
