The Geneva Motor Show has seen it’s fair share of hybrids, but Audi has made a splash with it’s reveal of the A8 Hybrid. In standard trim the A8 is already an impressive vehicle, with big power numbers, and luxury to spare. The new hybrid should appeal to those looking to stay green and powerful.
Combined, the 2.0 liter motor and electric motor provide over 240 horsepower. Impressive numbers, especially when you consider that the A8 will be available in v6 versions with similar horsepower and no hybrid power train.
Don’t go rushing to your Audi dealers just yet, the Audi A8 should not be available until sometime in 2011. By then I’m sure we will see plenty other luxury hybrids on the market, including those from Porsche and even Ferrari. Depending on how deep your pockets are, the sky is the limit on horsepower and luxury in a green wrapper.
