Reports Say The German Automaker Has Plans For A Range Of EVs

Audi may be looking to get seriously competitive in the electric vehicle market, according to a report from Reuters.

Tesla isn't holding its Detroit Auto Show press conference until tomorrow, but there's a new Model X on the stand today.
