This is going to be priced close to 2 crores. In the UK itself, the Audi e-tron GT comes in at around 100,000. Considering India's insane import duties, I'll be surprised if it comes in any lesser than 2 crores. Audi is certainly not going to assemble the car in India so will definitely bring it in CBU format. Personally I don't see the business case behind its introduction considering the Mercedes EQC and Jaguar I-Pace all costing a crore by themselves. In the UK, they are priced lower than the E-Tron GT.

The Audi is brilliant on its own, but I don't see the point in them bringing it to India.

Audi is not at all worried with lack of models to compete with BMW and Merc.
Nobody in India is waiting for these E-Tron models which may hardly sell 1 or 2 pieces a month.
Its very disappointing to see Audi India not making any efforts to bring in their most successful model Q3.
They keep postponing the launch dates. Its highly unlikely they will launch the Q3 this year.

The competition for EQC and I-Pace from Audi is the Audi E-Tron Quattro SUV. E-Tron GT has its own niche market and Porche will be bringing Taycan to India soon as well.

Man, Audi sure knows how to design ! This is the best looking electric car I've seen till date, better even than its sibling the Porsche Taycan (same platform). Variant to variant, this will be far cheaper than the Taycan too.

VW's Porsche & Audi are coming hard at the upper end of the EV market and we'll see this technology then taper down to their more mainstream cars. The E-Tron GT's charging speed, performance & range are all .

See what I meant about EVs democratising performance? The acceleration difference between the RS & regular version is just 0.8 seconds. The regular will be plenty fast for 99% of folks out there. And I'm telling you, it is electric cars that will bring 0 - 100 in 6 seconds to the sub-15 lakh segments. Something petrol & diesel engines could never do.

They may be waiting for clarity on CBU duties on Electric vehicles. Will love to have something like this but for me, the "sound" is also an integral part of the overall feeling one gets by driving V8's.

Metro also has a quick acceleration but is there any fun?

How do these go with Taycan, variant vice? Won't the Turbo-S Taycan at 2,34 be more VFM considering Porsche Brand, even if the cars are similar?

Or does, Audi MUST Discount everything and has to factor that while launching products?
