This concept from Audi is probably the coolest looking hybrid vehicle concept out there. The Audi A1 Sportback is powered by a 1.4 liter TSI gas burning engine equipped with both a turbo and supercharger (INSANE RIGHT!) and a 20 kw electric motor. In Hybrid mode the 2 engines propel the A1 from 0 to 60 in like 8 seconds. Now that isn’t blistering fast but for a hybrid that is peppy. There is an all electric mode too that can drive for 60 miles without using gas. Not bad! All that and it looks pretty freakin’ hot. It’s slated for a 2009 production and should be hitting the US market for sure. I can’t wait personally, this could be my next car.
