Geneva Motor Show 2018: Tata Motors unveils E-Vision concept sedan

This puts it in the same league as some of the popular electric cars like the Hyundai Ioniq, Chevrolet Bolt and the Tesla Model 3 that can cover as much 300 kilometres on a full charge.

"We will be launching more than 20 electric cars and plug-in hybrids by 2025", says Audi AG management board chairperson Rupert Stadler. "The e-tron is a key model for the Audi model range and we're excited to have it here in New Zealand in 2019", says Sheed.

As promised, Audi brought along several e-tron prototypes to this year's Geneva Motor Show, giving the world its first official look at the all-electric SUV model.

It shares its platform with the LR-based H5X SUV concept. This platform has been modular and scalable to accommodate a wide range of electric cars in future.

Tata has not revealed details of the E-Vision's electric powertrain save for mentioning that it will have a sub-7 second 0-100kmph sprint time and a max speed of 200kmph. Well, that's BMW 3-Series territory, and a place where no Tata vehicle has ever been before, and for just this, the eVision has our full attention.

Audi has unveiled its e-tron prototype at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, in Switzerland. The automaker is also presenting the all-new Vision Concept, which will unveil the company's future design language, as well as its new NEXO fuel cell vehicle, first unveiled in Las Vegas earlier this year.

Like the other two concepts, the EVision also looks like a design study at the moment.

When was the last time that we got excited about a concept vehicle that was limited to 50km/h? The all-glass panoramic sunroof adds to the roomy feel.

The E-Vision's elegant exterior design complements its interior, which has an air of minimalism about it. It's also working, with its alliance partner Nissan, on a "mission control" system for autonomous ride-hailing, which uses professionals who can monitor the progress of a self-driving cab, and take remote control if the auto encounters a problem with which its software can't cope.

Connected technologies such as cloud computing, analytics, geo-spatial mapping and increased human-machine interface.
