Audi, in its search for alternatives to conventional propulsion, has finally nailed its colors to a mast--and that mast is plug-in hybrids. In addition to the A3 Sportback e-tron later this year and plans for a plug-in hybrid version of the A4, the German automaker could develop plug-in hybrid variants of the A6 and A8 sedans and the Q7 SUV, too.
