We guess that together with a few new plug-in hybrids (A7, A8, Q5), Audi has noticeably expanded its plug-in position in the U.S., but as long as the manufacturer does not report the exact number of PHEV sold, we will not be able to fully evaluate the changes.

Anyway, it's still a long way for the e-tron and other Audi plug-ins to catch with the best selling ICE models.
