It's had a few hybrids, including the Audi A3 and Q7 e-trons, but it's never had a pure BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle).

Tata has revealed an electric sedan concept at the Geneva Motor Show 2018.

"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. The French auto maker claims that the EZ-GO makes for the flawless city vehicle, not only because it's low-slung, compact, and has big windows out of which its occupants can see, but because it's a zero-emissions electric auto that, thanks to its low, limited top speed, can actually use batteries that have been recycled out of more powerful, private, electric cars. In the interest of being as vague as possible, it claims "in just under 30 minutes, the SUV is then ready for the next leg of the long-distance journey".

Audi also drove several similarly disguised e-trons around the city of Geneva as part of a social-media contest in which everyone was invited to snap photos of the camouflaged cars and post them online with the hashtag #etron.

Though we've already seen the new luxury sedan in the sheet metal, Audi is holding a live press conference at the Geneva Motor Show for all to see.

Resembling the Tesla S-model and about the same size of Jaguar XE, the E-Vision comes with the sleek front to back running LED headlamps connecting the brand's signature grille. The "e" winds its way around the tailgate at the height of the front guard and is literally electrifying according to Audi. It will use a 95-kWh battery pack, good for 310 miles of range on the European cycle. The expressive sills with orange inserts show the location of the battery and therefore the energy center of the vehicle.

Audi is testing the pre-series vehicles for customer-focused operation in all climate zones ranging from below -20 ˚C to above 50 ˚C. The individual charging standards are tested on proving grounds and also in public areas to validate the full range of different charging options.

Until the start of series production, nearly 250 development e-tron vehicles will complete testing under extreme conditions worldwide.
