The 2011 Detroit Auto Show is still open to the public, but was over last week for all the media. It was then that we got to learn about some amazing vehicles, such as the 2012 BMW 1 Series M Coupe and the Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid, but it was the 2012 Audi A6 that grabbed much of the attention.
Let us get the bad news out of the way first, there is to be a hybrid version, but it will not be released until 2015 — a lot can change in four years in the motor industry. However, the thought of having a hybrid that can achieve 38MPG and reach 62MPH using its electric motor could be worth the wait.
Autoblog learned from AutoWeek of the projected wait time for the green-vehicle, but they did offer a more positive outlook by saying how much they were looking forward to the supercharged version of the A6 with its 300BHP engine. Audi still has no hybrid on the market, but the Q5 crossover will be their first — maybe they will be able to tell if they can break the hybrid market?
Freep has taken a closer look into some of the interior features of what the standard 2012 Audi A6 will have, and you will be pleased to know that there is to be an updated version of their MMI controller. You also have the choice of different entertainment systems; these are Bose or Bang & Olufsen.
Would you wait four years for the Audi A6 Hybrid?
