Audi to debut A1-based e-tron at Geneva?

. Friday, February 26, 2010

French auto blog, Le Buzz Auto is reporting that Audi will debut a third e-tron concept at next week's 2010 Geneva Motor Show. As you may recall, Audi's most recent Geneva-themed press release states that Audi "will be presenting the Audi RS 5, the near-production Audi A8 Hybrid show car and an additional concept car." If "Le Buzz" is correct, that "additional concept car" may be a new, smaller e-tron variant based on the Audi A1 platform.

We can not confirm any validity of this claim, however this rumor makes perfect sense. Considering that both Frankfurt and Detroit were used as an arena to debut different e-tron models, we would not be surprised if next week's buzz will be over the A1-based "Geneva e-tron."
