Audi Q8 e-tron electric SUV launched in India, priced from ₹1.14 crore


The new Audi Q8 e-tron SUV and Sportback are essentially facelifts to the e-tron SUVs already on sale. Not only do they get cosmetic and feature upgrades but also get the Q8 name attached to them this time around. Exterior revisions include new bodywork with a reworked grille, lights, bumpers and tailgate. The SUV looks sharper and sportier than before.
