Audi to assemble upcoming Q6 e tron in India

The Audi Q6 e-tron will be the brand’s third EV in India and is expected to be available by the end of 2024. The best news, however, is that it will be assembled in India from CKD kits at the Skoda Auto-VW Aurangabad facility.

This is Audi’s first locally assembled electric vehicle and it marks a significant turning point in the company’s long-term India strategy in addition to promising a possibly aggressive pricing point. As a matter of fact, the Q6 e-tron has been seen testing in India before its official launch.


The Audi Q6 e-tron will be priced below the Q8 e-tron (Rs 1.15 crore) and above the Q4 e-tron, which is sold overseas. Since other luxury brands haven’t yet entered this market, it doesn’t have any direct competitors in India. It is expected the Q6 e-tron to be smartly priced at about Rs 85 lakh.

Larger electric SUVs such as the Mercedes EQE SUV, BMW iX and Q8 e-tron are all priced well over Rs 1 crore, while smaller premium EVs such as the Mercedes EQA and EQB, Volvo XC40 and C40 Recharge are priced between Rs 55 lakh and Rs 75 lakh.

Audi has unveiled a dual-motor Quattro AWD variant with 285kW (388hp) and 326hp that can travel 625 km (WLTP certified) on a 100kWh battery. Additionally, there is a single-motor variant with 2WD and 326hp that can go 641 km on the same battery. It is also rumoured that a version with a smaller battery—roughly 80kWh in capacity—will be released later.
