Its no easy task to build a car that will please the market and conserve the health of our planet. However, Audi came out with their latest A1 Sportback Hybrid and presented it during the Paris Motor Show last month. Based on the A1 project Quattro concept that the Germans announced last year in Tokyo, the 5-door plug-in hybrid does 72.4 mpg and goes up to 60 miles with a single charge. With a 1.4 TFSI petrol engine and an electric motor that adds some 27 hp to the total, the luxurious looking A1 Sportback Hybrid plans to take on the renowned MINI Cooper. [BusinessWeek via Inhabitat]
