Have you been keeping up with us on social media this week? If you have, then you already know we've been driving a new 2014 Audi Q5 TDI. Watch this space for our impressions.

In the news this week, we learned that orders for the 261-mpg Volkswagen XL1 have exceeded the 200 scheduled units, and VW said it it believes a million electrified vehicles in Germany by 2020 is achievable.

We learned the Scion iQ mini car might be dead after this year, and Ford priced the new 2014 Fiesta EcoBoost from $17,240 in sedan form. If you opt for the sportier hatchback, you'll need at least $17,840.

Tesla made headlines this week numerous times. The NHTSA said it is done investigating the first Model S electric-car fire, Elon Musk opened a new Tesla store in London, new Superchargers now allow you to take a road trip in a Model S from San Diego to Vancouver, Panasonic's going to expand its battery cell production to meet Tesla's rising production, and Woz bought a Model S.

Meanwhile, Elon Musk's Hyperloop concept might become a reality thanks to a newly formed company. Finally, we dissected October plug-in electric car sales, including Tesla.

If all of this is new to you, then you clearly aren't following us on social media. No worries: you can correct this issue by immediately following us on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and, of course, YouTube.
