Now, each is investing heavily in new electrics and plug-in hybrids that should appeal to the market that Tesla pioneered by selling the Model S as hip, green and technologically advanced. Audi fielded several concept electric and plug-in hybrid cars in recent years but stopped short of building them over concerns about their range on a single batter charge. Advances in battery technology at Audi -- along with Volkswagen's experience producing well-received electrics like the e-Golf and eUp -- resulted in range increases to 280 miles per charge for the R8 and about 250 miles for the Q8.
