Audi A6 e-tron
The concept A6 e-tron, unveiled at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show, paired a long-wheelbase version of Audi's A6 sedan with a 2.0-liter direct-injected gasoline engine and an electric motor rated at 70 kW (94 hp) peak output, for a total powertrain output of 306 hp.
Now, Audi has confirmed a production version of the model--though the plug-in hybrid luxury sedan will only be sold in China. It's being built with FAW, Audi's Chinese joint-venture partner. We're still awaiting details of the A6 e-tron's production powertrain.

We're tentatively placing the R8 e-tron supercar in the "production" column right not, because at last count, Audi said it planned to build a limited run.
That may be subject to change, though, as the R8 e-tron has been slated for production then cancelled more times than we can count.
An electric R8 was first unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show all the way back in September 2009, and since then Audi has gradually developed it into the car we see today. Click on any of the links below to follow the car's progress so far.
