Germany’s luxury auto manufacturers Audi showcased three new cars at the Delhi Auto Expo 2012. The new cars, which will be seen, are the Audi A3 e-tron concept, Audi S6 and Audi Q7 V12. Audi has seen tremendous success in the Indian auto sector and during 2011 sales increased by 84% with sales of 5511 vehicles as against 3003 cars sold in 2010. In fact, Audi received more accolades than even Mercedes Benz and BMW during the last year.
Mr. Michael Perschke, Head of Audi India has likened the Indian auto market to that of China and USA and is sure that in the years to come, this market will reach even greater heights. Offering new vehicles to the Indian auto sector goes to show Audi’s commitment to increasing sales and presence in the Indian auto market.
The AudiQ3 is a sporty premium compact SUV. The Audi pavilion has highlighted three technology domains, Audi e-tron, Audi ultra and Audi connect, highlighting urban mobility solutions of the future. Member of the Board of Management of AUDI AG for Marketing and Sales, Peter Schwarzenbauer had this to say.
“India is a key strategic market for Audi and we are making a clear long-term statement in the country with ambitious expansion plans. Audi has seen phenomenal growth since its inception in India five years ago and today is the fastest expanding premium brand in the market. Now we are starting the next chapter of our success story: As a true premium SUV, the Audi Q3 leads the way for the Four Rings to enter a new segment in India, with ever increasing customer groups demanding for premium mobility in a compact form.”
