Audi India has confirmed that it will return its ninth launch Q5 in 2021. Yes, the Audi Q5 Facelift will finally launch in November and reservations for the locally assembled SUV are set to open in the next two weeks. When the BS6 emission standards went into effect, a number of SUVs, such as the Q3, Q5 and Q7, were discontinued and the company decided to withdraw all diesel-powered vehicles from the market. The Q5, an essential product for Audi in India, will be back soon with a new look and more features.
“We plan to launch the domestically produced Q5 in November. We have been waiting a long time for this. So far we have been doing very well despite some volume models in our Q model. It is not at full capacity,” said Audi India Chief Balbir Singh Dill said PTI.
With the launch of this Q5 next month, he added, “We are now looking at the next stage of our category and I am quite sure it will come soon. Q5 has been our successful model ever since. We have been in India.”
Audi India, which shares only its annual sales numbers, has sold 1,639 units by 2020. However, in the first eight months of 2021, it has already shown a growth rate of 115 percent.
“In terms of volume, we have already achieved three-digit growth for this year and I expect it to go up with the Q5 and other models expected later,” Dillon said.
In the absence of popular high-end models like the Q3, Q5 and Q7 SUVs in the Indian market, Dillon said the company also decided to move from Petrol Plus when India’s emission standards shifted from BS4 to BS6 last year. Diesel Strategy for Petrol and Electrification “.
The homogenization of new vehicles to comply with Indian regulations was delayed due to the corona virus epidemic.
“Homosexuality is a long process and the epidemic did not help.
Noting that all of those issues are behind it now, he said, “We will start making new Q5 bookings in a few weeks and start delivery next month.”
“We have fulfilled our promise to bring in the largest number of electric cars. No other manufacturer in the volume segment has brought in five electric cars. Our promise of five electric cars in India has now been fulfilled,” he said. We keep our promise to keep cars going. ”
He said that new petrol versions of other popular models Q3 and Q7 will also be launched in India.
