Audi revealed its first all-electric SUV in September 2018. Ever since then, the German brand has been working hard to make sure the electric SUV comes to India. The E-Tron is Audi’s answer to the Tesla Model X and Jaguar I-Pace. It is one of the most feature-loaded and futuristic cars on sale globally. In terms of design, the Audi E-Tron looks similar to its IC engines powered siblings like the new Q7 and Q5. It gets a similar design for the headlights and tail lights. However, it does get several unique elements to differentiate it from the regular bunch of Audi SUVs. The most prominent of these are the exterior ORVMs on either side.
The electric SUV packs a 95 kWh battery pack that can be juiced up to 80 percent within 30 minutes using a 150kW DC fast charger while the normal AC charger takes 8 hours for the same. Powering the electric SUV are twin motors placed on either axles for a total system output of 408 PS of peak power and 664 Nm of torque. The 0-100 km/hr sprint takes 5.7 seconds, while the top speed is electronically limited to 200 km/hr. The SUV will be brought to India via the CBU route. The Audi E-Tron will be launched by the first half of 2020 and will cost above Rs. 1 crore when launched.
