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."

The electricity grid mix can change, your ICE car will always burn the same.
It's also been shown that even the dirtiest grid charging EVs is cleaner than ICE cars...
I think EVs have a long way to go (better batteries, lower cost, faster charging), but this old argument is plain nonsense.
Charging cars at night is actually GOOD for the grid, because it levels out demand.
