    by Saransh Goyal on Thursday, Mar 11 2021

    Audi first showcased the etron SUV in India back in June 2019 and it was expected to go on sale in 2020 but the launch was delayed due to the covid-19 outbreak in the country. Now, the carmaker has confirmed it will launch the etron SUV in India by June 2021. Along with the etron, Audi will launch the etron Sportsback SUV in India. While the etron is an electric SUV, the etron Sportsback, as the name suggests, is a coupe-SUV version of the etron.
