Alpina: Electric power unlikely for foreseeable future

Alpina isn't in any hurry to adopt electrified powertrains, arguing its customers want big-capacity engines from their cars rather than plug-in hybrids or battery-electric vehicles.

Volkswagen T-Roc R spied again

A development prototype believed to be an early Volkswagen T-Roc R has been spied again, indicating the company's small performance SUV project is still in the works. Snapped leaving the Volkswagen and Audi test facility at the Nurburgring, the T-Roc R prototype looks very much like the blue example spied last September, though the LED daytime-running light strips in the front bumper aren't present on this black vehicle.
