Audi

Being part of the Volkswagen Group, Audi has slowly begun a move toward more electrified models, beginning with the Q5 Hybrid announced in 2012.

The company is more intent on clean diesel variants of its popular upscale cars and SUVs.

We expect to see more hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and all-electric vehicles from the automaker as the decade progresses, and federal and European regulations come into greater force.
