Audi A6 Hybrid footage

Audi will begin series production of the A6 hybrid, its second hybrid model after the Q5 hybrid quattro. The A6 hybrid employs an efficient parallel hybrid concept:

Its combustion engine, a 155 kW (211 hp) 2.0 TFSI, works together with an electric motor that delivers 33 kW (45 hp) and 211 Nm (155.63 lb-ft) of torque.

The electric motor sits directly behind the TFSI, occupying the space of the torque converter upstream of the modified 8-speed tiptronic. The transmission sends torque to the front wheels.

Although a very cautious start, in terms of electric motor and battery, this is a begining.
This looks like a small leap of a thoroughbred to becoming hybrid.
Who knows if, in a few years, we will don't see an authentic electric thoroughbred ?
