India is the fastest growing market, said German luxury carmaker Audi, which saw sales volume jump 63% in 2012 to 9,003 units — higher than the initial target of about 8,000 cars given in the start of the calendar. In 2011, the Volkswagen Group company had sold 5,511 units.
“2012 has been an outstanding year for us. We have not only retained our position as the fastest growing luxury car brand in India but are confident to be the number one luxury car brand in India by 2015,” Michael Perschke, head, Audi India said.
With 24 dealerships across the country, Audi’s success story in the last year was largely scripted by its new entry model – the Q3 compact SUV that it launched in June 2012 starting at R26.21 lakh. Other successful models are the entry luxury sedan A4 and the larger A6.
