Audi E-Tron SUV and the E-Tron Sportback would soon be arriving in India by the first half of this year. This is a confirmed development and also Audi has released a teaser video of the upcoming luxury EVs.
- Audi E-Tron and E-Tron Sportback can also get two electric motors that would make a combined 408hp
- There would be a 95kWh battery pack that would deliver over 400km on the WLTP cycle
- To rival the Mercedes-Benz EQC and Jaguar I-Pace, Volvo XC40 Recharge
Now for the powertrain options, both of these are expected to get an electric motor on each axle, which makes a combined 360hp and 561Nm of peak torque in standard Drive mode, which helps achieve a claimed 0-100kph time of 6.6sec. Whereas in the Sport mode, the electric motors develop 408hp and 664Nm, reducing the time at 0-100kph sprint time to 5.7sec.
It packs in a 95kWh battery pack that weighs around 700kg and comes with a range of over 400km on the WLTP cycle. Audi says a 150kW DC fast charger would charge the battery to 80 percent in just 30 minutes, while using a standard 11kW wall charger would take 8.5 hours to charge to full. Audi says a 150kW DC quick charger would charge the battery to 80 percent in only 30 minutes while the standard 11kW divider charger would require 8.5 hours to charge fully.
The highlights list for the E-Tron and E-Tron Sportback gets two touchscreens – an upper 10.1-inch screen and a lower 8.8-inch screen which is associated with a vehicle tech, grid LED headlights, a bunch of driver help frameworks.
Speaking of the rivals, there is the Mercedes-Benz EQC (priced at Rs 1.04 crore), the Jaguar I-Pace and Volvo XC40 Recharge which is yet to launch. We can expect the E-Tron SUV to be priced somewhere similar to the range while the Sportback would be costing a bit more.
