Audi launches Q7 SUV in two variants

Luxury carmaker Audi on Thursday, 3rd February announced the launch of the next-generation Q7 SUV in India. Price starts at INR 79,99,000 (ex-showroom). The locally assembled vehicle will come with eight airbags and is available in two variants of Q7 Premium Plus and Q7 Technology priced at INR 79.99 lakh and INR 88.33 lakh (exshowroom), respectively.

The Audi Q7’s versatile performance, both on and off the road, is a key trait that makes it stand apart from all others,” Dhillon said.

“The year 2022 will see the launch of high-volume models, in addition to some top-end products. With a diverse product portfolio, we are looking forward to a strong sales performance during the year 2022,” he said. During the last year, the carmaker launched five electric models in the country. Talking about them, Dhillon said there was an encouraging consumer response to its products and that all EVs models are sold out till March this year.
