Using the Euro-spec model as a reference, Audi’s flagship all-electric grand tourer could be offered in two variants: Standard and RS


  • Essentially a Porsche Taycan underneath the skin, the e-tron GT gets some Audi flair in design.

  • Cabin is in line with modern Audi offerings but gets physical knobs for features like the climate control.

  • Delivers up to 646PS and a WLTP-claimed 497km range out of a dual-motor all-wheel drive powertrain in the RS variant.

  • Prices could exceed Rs 1 crore.

We’re just a little over a week away from the September 22 launch of the Audi e-tron GT in India, and things are beginning to take shape. The all-electric grand tourer has landed in India for the first time, albeit hiding under covers. Bookings for the e-tron have already commenced.

While the car is covered in wraps, we already have an idea of what it will look like. The silhouette is reminiscent of the Porsche Taycan since it shares its underpinnings with it. That said, there is some Audi flair thanks to a large inverted front grille, and the trademark haunch above the rear wheels which gives it a muscular look.


The cabin is more in line with the Audis of today, as the steering wheel has been lifted from the RS7 Sportback, while the infotainment system has been taken from the A6. But the e-tron GT has physical knobs for features like climate control instead of the touchscreen setup in cars like the A6, A8L, and Q8.

While the variants for the India-spec model haven’t been revealed, if we’re going by the one sold in Europe, it will be offered in two variants-- Standard and RS. Both get a dual-motor all-wheel-drive powertrain setup and a 95kWh battery pack. Here are the detailed specifications:
