  • Qualification confirmed for participation in the electricity balancing market

July 15, 2015 – The Audi e gas plant in the city of Werlte in Lower Saxony produces CO2 neutral fuel, and it also contributes toward stabilizing the public power grid. After successfully completing a test sequence, the plant is now qualified for participating in what is known as the electricity balancing market.

Consumption data:
Audi A3 Sportback g-tron

CNG consumption in kg/100 kilometers: 3.5 – 3.3
Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 5.4 – 5.1 (43.6 – 46.1 US mpg)
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km (CNG): 96 – 89 (154.5 – 143.2 g/mi)
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km (gasoline): 126 – 117 (202.8 – 188.3 g/mi)
(Figures on the fuel consumption and the CO2-emissions vary in case of given ranges depending on the used combination of wheels/tires.)

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions data as well as the efficiency classes are dependent on the choice of wheels and tyres.
