Porsche and Audi`s Greener Vehicles

While Volkswagen will lead the global effort to mass-produce electric cars, the company's other brands, Porsche and Audi, are also launching hybrid and electric vehicles.

Audi will start selling a Q5 hybrid at the end of 2010 and this will be followed by the launch of a hybrid version of its flagship A8 sedan.

Audi's first all-electric car, the e-tron, will be launched at the end of 2012. This high-performance sports car generates 150 kW of power, and has a 0-60 MPH time of 5.9 seconds. What makes the Audi e-tron truly amazing is that it has a 250 kilometer range on a single charge.

The Porsche Cayenne Hybrid is already on the market and the 918 Spyder (with lithium-ion battery, three electric motors and V8 engine) is the fastest plug-in hybrid. The 320 km/h car has a fuel consumption rating of 3.0 l/100 km and 70 g/km CO2. In fully electric, E-Drive mode, the 918 Spyder moves without emissions.
