As this year’s Auto China show in Beijing begins to slow down, it’s becoming more and more obvious that the Chinese show is not one to be missed.

Audi is showing another version of its e-Tron electric concept car. Besides a slightly different look, the Detroit showcar is powered by only two electric motors, which power the rear wheels.

In a recent press release, Audi states that the Q5 crossover will be the its first production vehicle to feature hybrid technology when it is unveiled near the end of 2010. A hybrid Q5 will be poised to compete against the Lexus RX450h and the all-new Mercedes-Benz ML450 hybrids. The Q5 is already a hot-selling luxury CUV, and should prove to be a good start for Audi to launch its new hybrid system, though it is unclear if other vehicles in the automaker’s portfolio will receive this technology.
