Semi-official BMW tuner Alpina has unveiled a new B3, in wagon form. The BMW 3-Series-based B3 packs an impressive 462 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, making it an alternative to BMW's M3. Sadly, we won't see it in the United States.

Jaguar has released a teaser shot for its redesigned XJ. The new flagship sedan debuts next year and will feature a battery-electric powertrain. Gas-powered versions should also be in the pipeline.

The A7 Sportback is the latest model in the Audi lineup to be fitted with a plug-in hybrid powertrain. The car combines a 2.0-liter turbo-4 with an electric motor for a combined 361 hp and 368 lb-ft of torque. Not bad.
