To any connected reductive group G over a non-archimedean local field F (of characteristic p > 0) and to any maximal torus T of G, we attach a family of extended affine Deligne-Lusztig varieties (and families of torsors over them) over the residue field of F. This construction generalizes affine Deligne-Lusztig varieties of Rapoport, which are attached only to unramified tori of G. Via this construction, we can attach to any maximal torus T of G and any character of T a representation of G. This procedure should conjecturally realize the automorphic induction from T to G. For G = GL_2, we prove that our construction indeed realizes the automorphic induction from at most tamely ramified tori. Moreover, if the torus is purely tamely ramified, then the varieties realizing this correspondence are zero-dimensional and reduced, i.e., just disjoint unions of points.
