New hybrid Audi to be on display

Audi has announced that it will be previewing a new gasoline-electric hybrid wagon at the 2013 Geneva motor show. The car is called the A3 E-Tron and will feature 201 hp gasoline-electric power plant. Audi says that the new hybrid vehicle is a glimpse into its future automobiles.

The A3 hatchback uses a modified version of the Volkswagen EA211 1.4-liter four-cylinder direct-injection gasoline engine producing 148 hp. The car has an electric motor mounted to its six-speed dual clutch gearbox developing up to 101 horsepower. Combined the electric and gasoline engines provide 201 hp and 258 pound-foot of torque.

Audi says that the powertrain is capable of operating in three modes including engine only, electric motor only, and combined. Details on the battery pack for the vehicle are unavailable so we don't know how long it needs to charge or how long the vehicle can go on battery power alone. The car is able to hit 62 mph in 7.6 seconds and has a top speed of 138 mph.

Jaguar Land Rover wants to colonize South Carolina, or at least a few hundred acres of it, for its first-ever U.S. factory. The U.K.’s Sunday Times reports that the automaker has been “talking to several southern states, including South Carolina” about plans to open a facility that could churn out up to 200,000 cars per year. The Times said the Indian-owned British manufacturer also is considering s ...

Oct 22 2014 3:33pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

BMW and Audi want to cut carbon fiber production costs by up to 90 percent within six years—and they’re already halfway there. The two automakers, bolstered by funding from the German government and working with 86 other partners including Airbus and ZF, are part of a $102 million research consortium whose goal it is to make still-exotic carbon fiber more viable for mainstream manufacturing. By 2020, the group, dubbed MAI Carbon, hopes Germany w ...

Oct 22 2014 2:20pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

  The new-for-2014 Mini Cooper grew in size versus its predecessors, but some of its fuel-economy ratings are now getting the chop.

First Drive: 2016 Audi A6/S6

Oct 22 2014 10:49am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

DRESDEN, Germany — As with all of Audi’s products, the A6 has morphed from a pedestrian-looking ride to a sophisticate in short order. For 2016, it takes another step forward. The bolder lines and LED daytime running lights aside, it is the optional LED headlights that are the defining touch. In a sad move, the full-on matrix LED headlights are not coming here because Canadian law lags the rest of the world. The A6/S6 rework sees a new face, bolder lines through side profile along with more e ...

EPA: Four 2014 Mini Cooper models need to drop mpg numbers

Filed under: MPG, BMW, MINI, Legislation and Policy After the huge problems that Hyundai/Kia experienced with its mislabeled fuel economy labels, you'd think that any time an automaker has to adjust its mpg numbers, heralds would be shouting from the rooftops. But, after Ford admitted to three big mistakes with its numbers for the 2013 C-Max Hybrid and Mercedes-Benz had to lower the fuel economy rating for the C-Class, we unders ...

Takata Recall Update: Defective Airbags Being Disabled, “Do Not Sit Here” Stickers Affixed to Dashboards

Oct 22 2014 10:13am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

This is a disaster. The giant Takata airbag recall affecting more than 7 million U.S. passenger vehicles from a variety of auto manufacturers is proving difficult to combat. To briefly recap, there’s an issue with the airbag propellant that, in high-humidity states, can lead to shrapnel being fired into passengers when an affected airbag detonates. This has led to injuries that can present like stab wounds. This morning on NPR’s Morning Edition, Detroit News Correspondent David Shepard ...
