201? Audi A6 Hybrid – Click above for high-res image gallery

At last week's Detroit Auto Show, Audi unveiled the 2012 A6, and trotted out a hybrid variant capable of achieving 38 miles per gallon and running up to 62 miles per hour on electricity alone. So when can we buy one? Audi isn't sure.

According to Autoweek, Audi of America President Johan de Nysschen says the timetable for the A6 hybrid is still to be determined. In fact, we may not see the gas- and electron-powered luxury sedan until 2015. In the meantime, we'll be quite happy to spend some seat time with the 300 horsepower supercharged version.

      I wonder if it has to do with battery supply?

        Agreed 240 hp 3.0 TDI for the A6 in North America. Economy would be close to 40mpg on the highway with sub 7 second 0-60 acceleration time..

        A6 Avant TDI, further improvement.

      Uh huh. Looks like it's time for somebody to get stalinized by his own green police.
