Audi shows near-production spec E-Tron in Geneva


The e-tron prototype is powered by three electric motors with a total output of 320 kW (about 429 hp).

Built on a modified OMEGA (Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced) EV architecture, the "E-Vision Sedan Concept" is capable of attaining a top speed of 200 km/hr.

It shares its platform with the LR-based H5X SUV concept. Since the Omega architecture is not an all-electric platform, the concept sedan could also form the basis of Tata's first-ever future D-segment sedan that could go up against the likes of the Skoda Octavia, Toyota Corolla Altis and the Hyundai Elantra.

Tata Motors claims that the E-Vision concept comes with connected vehicle technologies such as cloud computing, geo-spatial mapping, increased human-machine interface, analytics, live traffic updates give it predictive energy management systems and more. The front end styling is similar to the 45X hatchback with slim LED headlamps, wraparound LED tail lamps and brushed aluminium grille. The interior is finished in beige leather upholstery with wooden trim pieces on the dashboard and door panels. Further details are still hidden, but look for more news later this summer.

The 2019 A6 borrows the 10.1-inch MMI infotainment screen from the A7, along with a second 8.6-inch display used for climate control function and other convenience features.

A digital instrument cluster behind the flat-bottomed steering wheel and a third LCD screen in the top section of the dashboard can not go unnoticed. Think, Indian Tesla. Well, that's how sharp the auto looks, and if Tata manages to put this into production as is, it'll probably be the classiest design that's come out of Tata Motors, ever!

It also gets connected technologies such as cloud computing, analytics, geospatial mapping and increased human-machine interface.

The concept packed a 96 kWh battery, contributing to an all-electric range of over 500 km on a single charge.

While Tata is tightipped about the eVision's mechanicals, er electricals, the vehicle is said to pack enough punch to hit a top speed of 200 Kph, with the nought to 100 sprint coming up in just 7 seconds.
