    Talking about the features, both the SUVs will get an identical feature list. Features on offer include a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, dual central touchscreens, Apple CarPlay and  Android Auto support, powered front seats, four-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof, powered tailgate, a wireless charger and rearview cameras in place of ORVMs. 

    e-tron

    In terms of design, the e-tron looks quintessentially Audi. The front fascia is dominated by the signature Audi grille however, here it is used to cool down the electricals. It is flanked by LED headlamps. The side profile looks clean with flared wheel arches and the two-part shoulder line that runs only over the wheel arches. At the back, like any other modern Audi, the e-tron also gets connected tail lamps. 

    Talking about the Sportback, it looks similar to the e-tron SUV but it gets a sloping coupe-like roofline at the back. The Sportback also gets more aggressive front and rear bumpers when compared to the e-tron SUV. Similarly, on the inside, both the EVs get an identical cabin with a multi-layered dashboard, 4-spoke steering and a central console dominated by two touchscreens. 

    Prices of both SUVs are likely to start around Rs 1 crore. While the e-tron SUV will compete with the Mercedes Benz EQC, the e-tron Sportback will take on the Jaguar I-Pace. Tesla is also expected to make its India debut later this year with the launch of the Model 3.
