New Delhi: In a surge of updating the style quotient of the SUV in the Indian market, Audi has also joined the bandwagon. The Audi Q7 Black Edition gets updated exterior for the price of Rs 82.15 lakh (ex-showroom India) and will be limited to 100 units in India.

As the name suggests, the Audi Q7 Black Edition gets a blacked-out grille along with the air intakes in the front. The sides display the gloss black finished door trims. A similar finish can be seen on the B and C pillars along with the wing mirrors. The roof rails and the alloy wheels are also finished in gloss black while the alloy wheels get a matte black finish. The updates are limited to the exterior only, while the cabin and the mechanicals of the SUV stay the same.

The Audi Q7 Black Edition gets the same petrol and diesel option as before – 3.0-litre diesel engine and a 2.0-litre petrol engine. The former produces 249PS while the latter puts out 251PS. Both the engines come mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

Commenting on the announcement, Balbir Singh Dhillon, head of Audi India, said, “Audi has been a pioneer in the luxury SUV segment and the Audi Q7 particularly has maintained competitive advantage ever since its launch. At the top of luxury, our customers want to showcase their individuality and exclusivity; the new Audi Q7 Black Edition will offer our customers just that – great features and innovative accessories in a limited-edition model. We are selling only 100 units of the Audi Q7 Black Edition and are confident that Audi family members and luxury aficionados will grab the opportunity to own this attractive car. To uplift the consumer sentiment this festive season, Government of India’s initiative of 30 per cent depreciation will act like a booster.”


Tesla bags 200,000 orders for its futuristic ”Cybertruck”




New Delhi: Elon Musk is back with a bang with his all-new “Cybertruck”. Irrespective of the controversies the all-new Tesla Cybertruck has gathered, it is one of the most radical wheels that has gone on sale in recent times and is becoming quite popular by the day.

Elon Musk took to Twitter to share that Tesla has already received 200k orders since the launch of the “Cybertruck” which was actually 3 days ago(22 November).

Tesla Cybertruck’s production is expected to begin in late 2020. The electric pickup truck is available in three trims — single motor RWD with a range of over 250 miles, dual-motor AWD with a range of more than 300 miles and tri-motor AWD with a range in the north of 500 miles.

The single motor RWD variant of the Cybertruck can go from 0 to 60 mph in below 6.5 seconds and has a towing capacity of over 7,500 pounds, while the dual-motor AWD trim can make 0-60 mph in under 4.5 seconds and boasts of a towing capacity of more than 10,000 pounds. Tesla claims that the tri-motor AWD variant of the vehicle is good for 0-60 mph in less than 2.9 seconds and gets a towing capacity of 14,000 pounds.

Given its relative performance and price, the Cybertruck could be a massive success for Tesla as it enters into the largest segment in the US market. Almost three million pickups were sold to consumers in 2018. If Tesla can carve off a tiny sliver of that, it’ll go a long way toward taking Tesla’s annual sales to the next level.
