Best of Geneva Motor show 2018

The E-tron SUV will be the first of three all-electric Audi models rolling out by 2020, including the four-door Gran Turismo based on the E-tron Sportback concept, and a compact model.

We can only assume the all-new sedan will look even better in person. The overall styling is a typical Four Ring with cascading grille, Q3-like headlights, and sleek single strip LED tail lights. The E-Vision's front-end looks more premium as compared to that of the 45X concept. The sedan's smoothly surfaced front bumper, replete with its L-shaped elements and brushed aluminum chin, do suggest as much. The use of a thick C-pillar further adds character to the design. Surfacing is crisp and clean throughout and you wouldn't be wrong to think the concept is from a premium European carmaker; the execution is that good. Hyundai will be introducing its highly anticipated, redesigned new 2019 Santa Fe, while the global unveiling of the Hyundai Kona electric vehicle will delight those looking for a practical all-electric auto: the automaker is promising a range of 470 km (for the long-range model). The dashboard is a floating type one. The company aims to make most of its vehicles electric by 2022. Can't keep in mind to be honest, but that's the case with Renault's big Geneva show noise, the EZ-GO concept, which is both vehicle and service. Instead, there is a retractable central infotainment screen. "It gives you a complete new play there". The dashboard contains two hidden displays that pop out only when required. The rear seats are fully adjustable, including recline.

E-Vision is based on the new-generation Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced Architecture (OMEGA), coupled with the company's Impact Design 2.0 which brings the new sporty look to the Tata cars with sharp lines and minimal curves.

The concept comes with both slow charging (AC) and fast charging (DC) options.

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

"We are committed to the mission of electric mobility and are working to build sustainable future", Tata Motors CEO and Managing Director Guenter Butschek said at the world premiere of the model here.
