The most expensive electric cars for sale in India right now

Two days ago, Telugu movie star Mahesh Babu added an all-new SUV to his garage – the Audi e-Tron. Of the electric cars for sale in India, this car is priced at Rs 1.18 crore (ex showroom), why not? The German SUV comes with all the amenities you could ask for, including a 360-degree camera, a B&O 3D sound system, LED digital headlights, a head-up display and a panoramic sunroof!

In the event that you are in the market but confused which one to choose from the list of electric vehicles and money is not a limitation, we have compiled a list of some of the best and most expensive electric vehicles available in India

7) Audi e-tron (1.01-1.19 crore)

Audi’s first all-electric offering in India, the e-Tron SUV is available in two styles – standard (SUV) and sportback (SUV-coupe), and in three variants – e-Tron 50, e-Tron 55 and e-Tron 55 Sportback.

As suggested by the variant name, EVs have different power outputs. For example, the standard e-Tron 50 gets a 71.2 kWh battery pack, helping the two electric motors put out 312 hp and 540 Nm. Meanwhile, the e-Tron 55 gets a larger 95 kWh battery and more power and torque at 408 hp and 664 Nm respectively. As a result, the e-55 is much faster than the e-50, accelerating from 0 to 100 km / h in just 5.7 seconds, compared to 6.8 seconds for the last. Speaking of features, standard equipment here consists of a 10.1-inch Audi MMI infotainment system with smartphone connectivity, wireless charging, and a panoramic sunroof.

6) Mercedes-Benz EQC (Rs 1.04 crore)

Retailing for Rs 1.04 crore, the Mercedes-Benz EQC has earned its asking price somewhat. We had the chance to take the electric SUV for a spin around Lonavala, and here’s what we thought. The EQC comes with the features expected of an SUV, which include a power sunroof, 64-color ambient lighting, and smartphone connectivity.

Under the hood, it combines two electric motors, which generate 408 horsepower and 760 Nm of torque. Powering the two motors is a generous 80 kWh battery pack with a claimed range of 450 km with a 0-100 percent charge time of just 90 minutes (with a 50 kWh fast charger). In case you want to put the EQC through the steps, the SUV does the job well as it can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.1 seconds and can reach an electronically limited top speed of 180 km/h.

5) Jaguar I-Pace (1.05-1.12 crore)

If you’re not too interested in Mercedes offerings, how about owning a Jag. At about the same price as the EQC, the Jaguar I-Pace offers a few extras over the German car. It sits on a longer wheelbase which means more comfortable seating, and a couple of extra features, like a head-up display, climate control and a 16-speaker Meridian audio setup.

It is powered by a larger 90 kWh battery pack, which brings back the claimed range of 470 km. On the other hand, its twin electric motors produce 400 horsepower and 696 Nm of torque, mated to Jaguar’s all-wheel drive system. It’s also faster to park, rising from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds, and a top speed of 200 km/h! Looking at the package offered and the “small” premium on the Merc, we can say that it’s a very tempting bargain.

4) BMW iX M60 (Rs. 1.15 crore)

If a Merc or Jag doesn’t catch your fancy, how about a Beemer instead? For an asking price of around Rs 1.15 crore, you can drive BMW’s first ‘M’ electric SUV, the iX M60. To get straight to work, the “M”-branded SUV packs a serious spec sheet, and that includes a twin-engine setup capable of 619 hp and 1,100 Nm of torque.

Put these numbers to the test and you should see 100 km/h come to a standstill in 3.8 seconds. To make sure you don’t fly, the German automaker has limited the electric SUV to 250 kilometers per hour. All this works despite the presence of a 76.6 kWh battery pack, which provides a range of 425 km. BMW claims that the battery can be charged from 0-80 percent in 73 minutes using a 50 kW DC charger.

The feature list here consists of all the bells and whistles you’ve seen in the first three entries. However, BMW does offer some extra goodies, including four-zone climate control, wireless charging, and ADAS (Advance Driver Assistance System) features like automatic vehicle braking, lane departure warning and blind spot detection.

3) Porsche Taycan (1.50-2.10 crores)

The words “Porsche” and “electric” may sound a little strange together, but the result is anything but amazing. Last year, Porsche launched India’s first all-electric car, the Taycan.

Starting at Rs 1.50 crore, the Taycan SUV not only looks the part but also offers a performance package worthy of its badges. The best-in-class Turbo S engine produces a whopping 751 hp, which can propel it from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds!

As expected, the equipment list is impressive with a dual 10.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, 16.8-inch instrument cluster, and 8.4-inch center console on display. It also equipped the Porsche Taycan with adaptive air suspension, electronic damper control, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control and many other features.

2) Audi e-Tron GT (Rs 1.79 crore)

Along with the e-Tron SUV, Audi also launched the performance-focused e-Tron GT last year. Priced around Rs 1.80 crore, the large Tourer offers the best of both worlds in terms of performance and functionality.

Staring at performance, the e-Tron GT gets two electric motors, powered by a 93.4kWh battery pack. It generates 530 horsepower and 640 Nm of torque, mated to the Audi quattro all-wheel drive system.

Thanks to these numbers, the GT can go from 0 to 100 km / h in just 4.1 seconds. As far as range is concerned, Audi claims the e-Tron GT is capable of doing up to 500 kilometers on a single charge. Charging options here include a 22kW AC charger and a 270kW DC charger that can boost the vehicle’s power from 5-80 percent in 23 minutes.

Being an Audi on the top shelf, the e-Tron GT is packed with features like the 10.1-inch MMI infotainment system, adaptive cruise control, a panoramic glass roof and climate control.

1) Audi RS e-Tron GT (Rs. 2.04 crore)

If the regular e-Tron GT isn’t for you, the folks at Audi also brought us an RS version of the Grand Tourer. As the badge indicates, the focus here is on performance.

It gets the same dual electric motor setup, but it produces 646 horsepower and 830 Nm of torque. Audi claims that the RS can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds, and reach a top speed of 250 km/h! All this is powered by a 93.4 kWh battery with a claimed range of 500 km on a single charge. And like the standard e-Tron GT model, the RS can also be charged from 5-80 percent in 23 minutes via a DC charging unit.

While the list of features shown here is the same, the RS model comes with a sportier-look bumper, larger alloy wheels, and brake calipers bearing the RS badge.
