Audi’s All-Electric E-Tron SUV Will Allegedly Be Unveiled This Fall 14

Audi may have started taking reservations for the all-new E-Tron SUV, but, according to reports, it won’t be revealed until this fall, probably at the Paris Auto Show in October.

Ingolstadt’s challenger to the likes of the Tesla Model X and Jaguar I-Pace is an important step in the Volkswagen Group’s push for electrification, and it also represents Audi’s answer to falling diesel sales.

Previewed by the concept car shown originally in 2015, the Audi E-Tron SUV is believed to get a more toned down styling for production, similar to that of the upcoming Q6, and to be underpinned by a modified version of the MLB architecture that’s also used by the Q5 and Q7.

No details about its zero-emission powertrain have been released so far, but the show car had three electric motors that worked together to produce 429hp and more than 800Nm (590lb-ft) of torque, which allowed it to sprint from 0 to 100km/h (62mph) in 4.6sec, and up to a top speed electronically limited at 210km/h (131mph). The electric motors will get their juice from a large capacity battery, which should give it a total range of 500km (311 miles) on a single charge.

Inside, the Audi E-Tron SUV is believed to offer seating for up to 5 and sport an interior design inspired from the latest A8, with the Virtual Cockpit taking center stage at the front. Finally, just like the flagship saloon, the zero-emission SUV is expected to feature Level 3 autonomous driving capability.

New Renault Clio Reportedly Coming To Paris Show, Diesels Are Uncertain 6

Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Autonomous, Hybrids, Paris Auto Show, renault, Renault Clio, Reports on 01 6th, 2018


The current Renault Clio has been in production since 2012, making it one of the oldest cars in the supermini segment, but the French brand will introduce the fifth generation later this year.

Coming as early as the 2018 Paris Auto Show in September, prior to its on sale date scheduled for 2019, the B-segment car will basically be an evolution of the fourth generation model, says AutoExpress. Visually, it will be inspired by the Symbioz Concept and its larger sibling, the new Megane.

Looking to keep production costs as low as possible, Renault will continue to offer the next Clio based on the CMF-B architecture, albeit with a few modifications, which will give it access to a variety of petrol engines, including the turbocharged 0.9-liter three-cylinder, and the new 1.3-liter unit.

It’s unclear at the moment whether any dCi diesel mills will make their way into the car, as the French manufacturer is still weighing in on this decision as the market is moving away from oil burners.

While diesels may be uncertain, the 2019 Renault Clio will get the 48V hybrid technology, paired to a small petrol engine, which will lead to lower emissions and improved fuel consumption. A plug-in hybrid variant has been apparently ruled out, though.

Moreover, the publication reports that the French brand’s next-gen supermini will play its part in their electrified future, so we’re probably looking at a new Zoe too, in the coming years.

The 2019 Renault Clio is also expected to adopt basic semi-autonomous driving, which will allow it to steer, accelerate, and brake on its own, raising the bar for other cars in the subcompact sector. Nevertheless, don’t expect to read the paper behind the wheel, because drivers will be obliged to keep their hands on the steering wheel at all times.
