Audi India is all set to launch the new 2021 Audi e-tron GT electric four-door coupe today, and we’ll be bringing you all the live updates here. It’s the third electric vehicle from the company after the e-tron and e-tron Sportback electric SUVs, which were launched a few months ago. In fact, the e-tron GT comes to India with seven months of its global debut. Globally, the e-tron GT is offered in two options – Audi e-Tron GT quattro and a sportier, RS e-Tron GT, and we expect both of them to be launched in India.

You get three sound modes – Efficiency, Comfort and Dynamic.
