Volkswagen Group has announced a carbon-offset program for the upcoming 2016 Audi A3 e-tron plug-in hybrid.
Audi and Volkswagen will partner with 3Degrees to invest in carbon-reduction programs to offset production of the cars, as well as the estimated emissions of recharging for up to 36,000 miles for the e-Golf or 50,000 miles for the A3 e-tron (in both electric and gasoline operation).
Audi will invest in two unspecified projects, one in the U.S. and another in Africa.
In addition to the carbon offset program, both Audi and Volkswagen will offer home solar systems through SunPower. This will offer the e-Golf and A3 e-tron owners a renewable energy source for their home charging.
