Expressing his views on these brilliant sales figures, the Head of Audi India, Michael Perschke was quoted as saying, “2013 is proving to be a great year for Audi in India. Not only are we achieving spectacular growth month on month, we also achieved market leadership in the luxury car segment in India. It is now important to sustain this momentum to reinforce our leadership and I am confident that we will achieve our sales target of 10800 units (+20%) by the end of this year. At Audi, we have demonstrated over the past 6 years how to delight customers through technology and highly innovative concepts that are in line with our philosophy of ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’. Today, we have emerged as a dynamic and visionary brand with cars that exemplify sportiness, progressiveness and sophistication. All this gives us the confidence to continue to expand our innovative product range, dealer network and introduce some unique engagement initiatives for our customers and prospects.”

After Delhi and Mumbai, we rolled out the Audi sportscar experience in Pune and Goa this month where our customers got an opportunity to experience the sporty range of our cars. Audi sportscar experience will now travel to Bhubaneswar and Delhi.”
