e-tron sports hybrid to be at CES
I have been saying for a long time now that cars and tech are dovetailing very nicely. Not only is a lot of tech finding its way inside cars to day with all sorts of voice control and entertainment capability, but the tech that actually makes the vehicles run is getting more and more complex too.

Audi has tweeted that it will be on hand at CES 2011 alongside Ford and other major brands showing off its tech. Audi hints that it will be showing of its hybrid sports car called the e-tron Spyder. If you have missed this car so far, the thing is epic. It reminds me a lot of the other Audi sports cars and it looks really good.
The hybrid has a 300hp twin-turbo TDI V6 along with dual electric motors. The power plant has 479 pound-feet of torque and uses a 9.1-kilowatt hour battery. The car is 3,196 pounds with batteries and all is promises a 31 mile all electric driving range if you keep the speedo pegged at 37mph.
