Today, President Barack Obama visits the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, Audi selects a plant in Belgium to build its new electric SUV, and the Internet offers diesel "defeat devices" for owners looking to mess with their vehicles' emissions controls. All this and more on Green Car Reports.

President Obama visits the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, and checks out the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV electric car.

It's not just Volkswagen. The Internet offers diesel "defeat devices" too.

The Audi electric SUV slated to go on sale in 2018 will be built at an existing plant in Belgium. The plant will be upgraded to handle the electric model, and will build its batteries as well.

[EDITOR'S NOTE: The Audi e-Tron Quattro Concept, first unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, was long expected to carry the Q6 designation when it launched as a production vehicle in 2018 or later. In October 2016, however, Audi said the production version would be called simply Audi e-tron. We have updated this article accordingly.]
