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. It's called the Tata EVision and is clearly the sharpest-looking of the three. It gets a fastback-kind of a rear that will remind some people of the Aston Martin Lagonda.

In the last 20 years, Tata Motors has been consistently bringing out new vehicles at the Geneva Motor Show. The chiselled headlamps and tail lights look modern and futuristic with the front grille giving away the now familiar broad smile that sweeps into the the LED headlamps. And with minimal curves on the bonnet, the sedan gives a close look to the one seen on the Tata H5X concept vehicle, showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo.

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. Tata Motors also showcased the H5X and 45X at Geneva Motor Show 2018. Tata's new Impact 2.0 design language promises "segment-leading wheel sizes" and "strong fenders" for an enhanced road presence and you can expect to see the same on this new vehicle.

The vehicle rides on 21 inch wheels, features flush-fitting door handles, futuristic wing mirrors and uses plenty of brushed aluminium to to really stand out on the showfloor. Further details are still hidden, but look for more news later this summer. 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). It depicts the prowess of the company to build electric cars in the future, based on this platform. Tata's subsidiary Jaguar Land Rover has already announced that it will electrify most of its vehicles by 202o.

Inside the Tata E Vision Sedan Concept, the dashboard and the centre console are premium-looking with lavish use of high-quality wood and premium materials.

The E-VISION Sedan Concept comes with predictive energy management systems that are based on live traffic information and routes.
