The Indian arrival of the Audi e-tron has been on the speculation wheel for quite some time now. Finally, concreting the earlier reports, the pure electric SUV will make its official Indian debut on 27 June.
The Audi e-tron was officially revealed for the first time back in September 2018. Audi's all-electric SUV comes in a five-seater configuration and sits between the Q5 and the Q7, but it hasn't been named accordingly because the pricing doesn't work out the same way. In terms of exterior looks, the e-tron carries a much aggressive and sharp styling as seen on Audi's other high-end vehicles. At the front, it features an octagonal, enclosed grille and LED headlights. The main visual highlight at the rear is LED rear taillights connected via a light strip. Overall, the e-tron is instantly recognisable as a typical Audi SUV, though.
The Audi e-tron comes loaded with two motors which independently power both the ends of the vehicle. The front-end is powered by a 125 kW (170 PS)/247 Nm motor, while the rear-end has a 140 kW (190 PS)/314 Nm motor. This setup provides a maximum system power and a maximum system torque of 408 PS and 664 Nm respectively. The all-electric SUV is capable of covering 400 km on a single charge as per WLTP cycle. It features a 95 kWh battery pack which can be charged via regenerative braking tech and a traditional wall charger.
The Audi e-tron is 4,901 mm long, 1,935 mm wide and 1,616 mm tall and has a wheelbase of 2,928 mm. It can be recharged with AC at up to 22 kW and with DC at up to 150 kW. Using an 11 kW AC charger, fully charging the battery pack takes in roughly eight and a half hours. Fast charging using a 150 kW DC charger from 0-80% takes half an hour. The zero-emission SUV can reach from 0-100 km/h in 5.7 seconds (boost mode timing) and achieve a top speed of 200 km/h.
Expect the Audi e-tron to be priced around INR 1.5 crore (ex-showroom). It will be launched in India towards the year-end and compete with the Mercedes EQC.
