The 2014 Audi A3 E-tron plug-in hybrid will launch in 2014, but will make an appearance at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show

Audi revealed its 2014 A3 E-tron, which is the automaker's entry into the plug-in hybrid market.

The 2014 Audi A3 E-tron plug-in hybrid features a 148-HP 1.4-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine and an electric motor that offers 100 HP. It gets 188 MPG on the European cycle, and can run 31 miles on electric alone at speeds up to 80 MPH.

Audi also mentioned a new six-speed e-S tronic transmission, which transfers the power to the front wheels. The car can go from zero to 62 MPH in 7.6 seconds.


"The electrification of the drivetrain, above all using plug-in technology, will play a decisive role in the model strategy of (Audi)," said Audi in a statement. "This latest development is designed to give some insight into how the technology will take shape in the Audi models of the future."

Don't forget the concerted effort in the Northwest US to remove all hydroelectric dams.

All dams? There are 79000 significant in the US, over 2500 producing power.

Removing a few to restore fish populations isn't a concerted effort to take them all down. Take off the tin hat.

Well unless you live in the Portland area, I would doubt that you have heard this, but it is about more than fish populations.

The Spotted Owl was not about the bird, it was about stopping logging, all logging. The Sierra Club, WWF, plus several other environmental organizations have publicly that their goal is to remove all damns from the Columbia/Snake river system and restore the habitats that were originally there. The fish are just a pretense.
