    Three years ago, Audi launched a hybrid version of the A6, and the company hinted strongly that it would be sold in the U.S. as well. But those plans never materialized and now it is too late: The A6 hybrid has departed this world after just 4000 units built. Requiescat in pace. Back in 2011, we spent considerable time behind the wheel of the A6 hybrid. Powered by a 2.0-liter TFSI four with 211 horsepower and a 54-hp electric motor, it produced combined system power of 245 horsepower.

    BMW and Audi want to cut carbon-fiber production costs by up to 90 percent within six years—and they’re already halfway there.

By 2020, the group, dubbed MAI Carbon, hopes Germany will be the center of carbon-fiber research and development; the group also wants to drive down the material’s cost so that automakers…
