Audi is on course to bring its all-electric grand tourer, the e-Tron GT to Indian shores. The news regarding the launch of the Audi e-Tron GT in India came via a teaser released by Audi India.
Underneath, the Audi e-Tron GT is essentially a redesigned Porsche Taycan with very similar specifications.
However, Audi has slightly changed few specifications to make sure that the e-Tron doesn't overshadow the Taycan. While this might be irksome to a few, both Audi and Porsche are owned by Volkswagen, and it wouldn't be good business for Porsche if Audi gets better it better than Porsche.
Coming back to Audi e-Tron GT, it is available in two variants; the standard and the RS. While the former is what it sounds, the latter focuses on performance. According to Audi, both the standard variant and the RS variant utilise an identical 95kWh battery pack and dual-motor set-up, but the RS uses more powerful electric motors to produce a combined output of 598PS and 830Nm of torque.
The standard variant of the Audi e-Tron GT on the other hand uses a comparatively less powerful set-up with 476PS and 630Nm of torque. However, the Ingolstadt based automobile giant has not yet revealed any details regarding the variant of the e-Tron GT that will make its way to the Indian market.
Though Audi will launch the standard variant in India, we suspect the German brand to launch the e-Tron GT in the RS variant initially for image building purposes. This will make Audi the first brand to introduce an all-electric performance car on Indian soil.
Design-wise, I believe Audi e-Tron GT is one of the best looking electric cars out there in the market today. While most electric cars look like the designers are working overtime to make them look futuristic just because it has an electric powertrain, the Audi e-Tron GT looks conventional and easy on the eye.
We expect Audi to price the e-Tron GT above the Rs 1 crore mark, and it will be the brand's second EV after the e-Tron SUV for India.
Thoughts About The Audi e-Tron GT India Launch Teased
Audi e-Tron GT is a Porsche Taycan with Audi clothing. This essentially means that the vehicle will be dynamically very capable. However, the success of the e-Tron GT in India will highly depend on how Audi plans to support Indian consumers in their transition to all-electric cars.
