Teaser for Audi e-tron Sportback concept debuting at 2017 Shanghai auto showEnlarge Photo
Today, we've got another preview from the important Shanghai auto show, some Eurodiesel news, a first drive of a plug-in hybrid Cadillac, and the audacious idea of an electric airplane All this and more on Green Car Reports.
A new electric-jet startup has some important backers: Boeing and JetBlue, though neither has committed yet to production or sales.
Audi has teased an e-tron "four-door coupe" utility vehicle that it'll show in concept form at this week's Shanghai auto show.
The Chinese show, by the way, is turning out to be a whole lot greener for new cars and concepts than last week's New York auto show.
We weren't there, but we have the first drive reports of the 2017 Cadillac CT6 Plug-In Hybrid luxury sedan.
More on diesels: on the other hand, diesel owners in the U.K. are being offered more than $2,000 to scrap older diesel vehicles (which have remarkably little emission-control gear and would never pass U.S. standards, we should point out).
Finally, we have word that Volkswagen will build a second SUV in the U.S. to take advantage of underutilized capacity in its assembly plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee—and it may well offer a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
