The bookings of Audi e-Tron GT have commenced in India, ahead of its launch later this month. Following the e-Tron twins (SUV and Sportback) launched in India a couple of months ago, Audi will introduce an all-electric model in India for the third time. A performance-oriented RS version and a standard S version of the e-Tron GT are available globally. Audi has yet to confirm which models will arrive in India.
The standard Etron GT Quattro is powered by an electric motor that produces 238 hp on the front axle and 435 hp on the rear axle. In total, each motor produces 475 horsepower and 630 pounds-feet of torque. It is capable of reaching 0-100 kmph in 4.1 seconds, reaching a top speed of 245kmph. A stronger rear electric motor increases system output on the Audi RS e-Tron GT to 598 horsepower and 830 pound-feet of torque. It is capable of going from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour in 3.3 seconds and reaching speeds as high as 250 kilometres per hour. There are two versions of the E-Tron GT, each with an 85-kWh battery. For the standard e-Tron GT, Audi claims a range of 488 kilometres, while the RS e-Tron GT is said to have a range of 472 kilometres.
The design of the e-Tron GT is stunning, with a heavily sloping roofline, wide track, broad shoulder line, and a low bonnet. Bright LED headlights and taillights with characteristic Audi motifs are some of the most interesting features of the car.
It comes with a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 12.3-inch digital engine display, connect-car technology, shift-by-wire, and numerous safety and driver assistance technologies. However, unlike some of the newer Audi dual-screen models, the E-Tron GT uses traditional physical buttons to control the climate.
Price Details and Rivals:
Consequently, the prices of the e-Tron GT are likely to be considerably higher than those of the luxury EV market, with prices beginning at around 1.6 crores for the regular model and up to Rs 2 crores for the RS version (excluding car dealership).
So, this will be a better EV than the Mercedes-Benz EQC and the Jaguar I-Pace offered in India. The Porsche Taycan will be a tough competitor for the e-Tron GT in India in 2022.
