Audi e-tron prototype revealed All-electric SUV previewed in Geneva

Geneva: Renault wants to launch an EZ robo-taxi service, while Audi shows off its all-electric prototype

A more coupe-like version of the e-tron is also planned, and both vehicles will be produced at Audi's plant in Brussels, Belgium. It has that hunkered down look with the nose diving in at the front, much like Tata's 45X concept, which in turn pushes its face further down with a relatively elongated bonnet - a design element that can be seen it on the new Volkswagen Polo and Virtus sedan as well.

The distorted e-tron lettering stretches across the new SUV, as if it was charged with electricity.

The upcoming Audi e-tron SUV has been previewed in "prototype" form at this week's Geneva motor show, ahead of a European launch later this year.

The camouflaged exterior conceals a sporty premium SUV with space for five people along with plenty of luggage room - the space and comfort are similar to that of a typical Audi luxury class model.

"Audi will redefine premium electric mobility with the all-new 100% electric e-tron quattro", says Audi New Zealand general manager Dean Sheed. The automaker says that at fast-charging stations the E-tron will be able to charge up for the next leg of a long-distance journey in just under 30 minutes.

Alpine's new A110 is the first proper production model from the brand, though no word yet on when it will be on the road.

Audi wasn't willing to reveal any new specs for the e-tron but hinted at a range of at least 250 miles. Specifically, the orange-and-black trim around the lower part of these prototypes highlights where the battery pack resides, with the color hinting at the colors used to highlight high-voltage cabling. The expressive sills, with their colorful inserts, indicate where the battery and therefore energy center of the vehicle are located.

"It powers our electric aspirations". Audi claims to have completed extreme condition testing across the globe on nearly 250 development vehicles before revealing the e-tron show auto. Audi will publish the best pictures on the website at www.e-tron.audi, without any hide-and-seek. In addition, intensive tests of the charging technology are being conducted worldwide - an important safeguarding criterion for battery-electric models.
