Audi Kills Plans for Hybrid Q5

According to Autocar, the Q5 hybrid is out indefinitely. Audi has been reluctant to get into hybrid cars and now it's telling people they are out until 'we can make nickel metal hydride batteries safer in crash situations.'

Now, that may be a reason, but really, Audi doesn't want to spend money to develop this fuel saving technology when they can go for other options, like diesel. Or they can use cheaper options like simple start/stop solutions or aluminum chassis.

Audi had previously thought of implementing a hybrid Q7 and a hybrid A4, but both measures were eventually killed off.
