With Audi’s global focus towards electric mobility, our project ‘Electrified India’ is already underway and we are in a position to launch the ‘Audi e-tron’ as soon as 2019-2020, subject to conducive market conditions. Additionally, we would like to ask the Government to support the luxury car makers through reduction of taxes so that they are more accessible to customers. Higher sales will mean further investment in the business, the launch of new products, expansion of our network and in the process creating more jobs. This will also benefit the Government in terms of increased tax because of increased sales volumes.”
