German luxury car maker Audi on Thursday launched three all-electric SUVs under its e-tron range with prices starting from Rs 99.99 lakh kicking off its electrification journey in the country. The three all-electric SUVs — e-tron 50, e-tron 55 and e-tron Sportback 55 — are priced at Rs 99.99 lakh, Rs 1.16 crore and Rs 1.18 crore respectively (all prices ex-showroom), Audi India said in a statement.
Commenting on the launch of the e-tron brand in India, Audi India Head Balbir Singh Dhillon said, “we are launching not one, but three electric SUVs that begin our electrification journey.”
The three electric SUVs are “the perfect confluence of luxury, zero emissions, performance and everyday usability”, he added.
“With the three offerings, we have a proposition for every type of EV customer in the small but growing luxury SUV space,” Dhillon said, adding that to ease the transition to electric mobility, Audi India is offering several benefits and packages including after-sales, charging and ownership.
To take it a step forward, he said, “We are also offering a best-in-class 3 year buyback.”
Stating that this is just the start of Audi India’s electric journey, Dhillon said very shortly the company will also announce its next EV offering.
The e-tron 55 and e-tron Sportback 55 have dual electric motors that deliver up to 300 kW of power with 664 Nm of torque, and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds. These are equipped with a 95kWh lithium-ion battery that enables a 359-484 km range (WLTP – Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure) on a single charge.
