AutoComplete: Audi's Q5 gets a plug-in hybrid variant
Here's what's making news on Roadshow.
Audi announced that it would be doing a range of new plug-in hybrids during the Geneva show this year and now we're finally getting some real info on their specs.
The one we're really excited about is the Audi Q5 55 TFSIE Quatro Despite it's somewhat ungainly name, this looks like it will be a real sweetheart on the road with power and torque comparing favorably with the much sportier SQ5, plus it will get great gas mileage.
The US Postal Service is dipping its toe in the world of self-driving trucks with a new pilot program in partnership with a company called Too simple.
Before you get excited, no, you won't be seeing driverless Grumman Elvis puttering around your town.
This pilot is for large longer haul semi trucks and will take place between Phoenix and Dallas over the course of five trips.
These trucks will have human safety drivers and safety engineers onboard in case anything goes awry Chevy's teen driver pack as equipped to the 2020 traverse, is a boon to parents sending their kids out of the road for the first time.
And now it's got a new feature.
It's called buckle to drive and it won't let the driver shift out of park for at least 20 seconds after starting the car.
It also displays a message on the instrument cluster screen that says, buckle seatbelt to shift.
And while it's not clear if the car actually won't shift until the driver buckles up, or if it'll work without seatbelts after 20 seconds.
This is still probably a pretty good way to annoy kids into wearing their safety belts and we're all for that.
