Cadillac And Audi Bringing New Technology To The States In 2015

Cadillac is introducing a new stream rearview mirror in their all-new flagship luxury sedan,  the CT6, when its released late next year. According to the chief engineer of the CT6, the standard rearview mirror is, "“The closest comparison to this kind of rear vision would be driving a convertible with the top down.”  
The streaming technology eliminates any rear seat, rear pillar and passenger obstructions. The driver's vision is no longer impeded by traditional blind-spots. Drivers will have the ability to disable the mirror's video streaming function, flipping the toggle switch.

In other news, Audi is coming to the market with America's first plug-in diesel. According to my automotive sources, the Q7 will get the new technology. Yes, we're all familiar with plug-in hybrids, which runs off of regular gasoline and an electric charge. However, this will be the first vehicle in the states to run-off of both diesel gas and an electric charge. The technology currently exist in one of the Volvo's over in Europe. This technology is expected to arrive in the states soon!
