Kolkata, Jan 3 IBNS | 2 years ago

Audi, the German luxury car manufacturer, on Friday said it has become the first-ever luxury car manufacturer in India to sell more than 10000 units in a single year.

The brand with the four rings crossed this historic milestone by registering a sale of 10002 units in the period January - December 2013, a growth of 11 percent (January - December 2012: 9003 units).

December 2013 was a landmark month with bookings of more than 1340 units - highest ever bookings in a month in India, said the company.

However certain supply constraints have resulted in delayed delivery of 450 odd vehicles to January 2014.

"As a goodwill gesture Audi India is providing these customers with the price protection and will be delivering these cars in January 2014 with December 2013 prices," said the company in a release.

"We are resolute as we enter a new year that we will also make 2014 a landmark year for us in terms of new achievements and memorable highlights in enhancing customer delight," said Joe King, Head, Audi India.
