The e-tron GT could be offered in two variants: Standard and RS

  • Audi’s second electric offering in India is expected to be launched in September.

  • The e-tron GT will be powered by a 95kWh battery pack with a WLTP-claimed range of up to 487km.

  • Audi is expected to offer it with a digital driver’s display and powered front seats.

  • Expect it to be priced over Rs 1 crore (ex-showroom).

It looks like India is about to get its first all-electric sedan soon. Nope, we are not talking about the Mercedes-Benz EQS, but the Audi e-tron GT, as hinted by the carmaker in one of its recently released teasers. This will be Audi’s second EV model for India following the e-tron SUVs.

While Audi offers the e-tron GT in two variants globally -- Standard and RS (performance version) -- we do not know which variant it plans to bring here. The electric grand tourer shares its underpinnings with the Porsche Taycan.

The e-tron GT’s cabin is expected to get a digital driver’s display, Audi’s latest MMI touchscreen infotainment system (as seen on A6, A8L, and Q8), physical knobs for climate control, and ambient lighting. Audi is also expected to equip it with powered front seats and some RS-specific bits such as sportier seats, instrumentation, and red stitching for the RS variant.
