Audi India has officially announced and confirmed that its upcoming electric SUV, the Audi e-tron, will be available in 3 variants - 50, 55, and 55 Sportback.

Commenting on the announcement, Mr Balbir Singh Dhillon, Head of Audi India, said:
We believe in India’s long-term goal of electric mobility and at the same time in giving an array of choices to our customers. It is with this belief that we have decided to launch the entire range of the Audi e-tron SUV in the form of two variants, along with the Audi e-tron Sportback 55. Between this trio, we aim to quickly get India’s most discerning first movers and early adopters plugged into our premium electric SUVs and subsequently usher in the new era of electric luxury mobility in the country.
