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."

I really don't see the upside in using natural gas for power generation. It's a natural non-renewable resource and thus would be better used for heating homes and appliances (stoves water heaters etc etc). Something we can't really do with coal.
It's 2013, seriously, it's embarrassing we're still burning things to generate power. Just make with the nuclear already for all's sake. And shoot down anyone who has a problem with it.
