Audi e-tron E1  (Source: Motorauthority)
Odd looking EV seats two

A very odd-looking car was spied in Berlin this week. The tiny car was wearing wild camouflage that new models are often seen in to hide their dimensions from spy photographers. 

The vehicle in this instance was a peculiar, very small car wearing the linked rings of the Audi brand on the grill. Audi has since confirmed that the camouflaged car that was seen in Berlin was actually the e-tron city concept car.

This e-tron city car isn't to be confused with the much larger, and more likely to hit the roads, e-tron A3 car from April. This little city car is dubbed an "urban concept" according to Audi. The car looks to have just one seat based on the photos, but it will actually hold two people. The passenger sits to the right and a bit behind the driver for more shoulder room. The narrow tires will help reduce rolling resistance and presumably increase the driving range.

The fully electric car produces no emissions and will officially debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show.

The e-tron city is expected to be the smallest in the Audi eco range sporting EV, gas, and diesel models. There should be more information on the vehicle when the Frankfurt Auto Show kicks off in September.

Too bad this won't be cheap (no electric car will be for quite a while).

this looks like a 4~500kg car whit even less drag.

So you properly can do with a battery that's only 30% in size of a leaf.

Ofc this are guises but think I will not be far off.
