I never understood the gayness of hybrids, when diesels spank hybrids in performance and fuel economy without all that Chinese plated nickle lithium stuff to pollute the world.

Agreed. Unfortunately the stigma of diesel still exists in the US.

Great video!
As an A6 Avant owner I too wish more than you can think that the 3.0 TDI was offered in Canada and the US. If it was I would definitely be driving an Avant with the 3.0 TDI as opposed to the 3.2 petrol.
Every time I see a hybrid I throw up in my mouth a little bit :)

Got a link to the vid?

And +1 on the diesel being better than hybrids [:D] But propaganda is a strong tool.

Yup, not only is a diesel quicker and more responsive, it's more efficient, and pollutes less in the total life span. I still enjoy reading the LCA's on Prius's, not so green when you have to get rid of a big nasty battery every ten years.

Imagine how much fun that avant would be if mated to a 6spd manual? I would love to have the new C6 TDI allroad.....sigh.

It's available - pretty sweet in the A4/A5 cars.

Although the 7-speed DSG does a better job of keeping the TDI in the sweet spot.

I know it is available, but not in Canada/NA. As for the auto trans, defeats the whole purpose of "driving" in my opinion. Call me old school or something, but I only "drive" a manual vehicle.
