The next round of bookings for a limited number of just 500 units will start by the end of June.
We knew this was coming ever since Audi India launched their much awaited crossover, the Q3 on June 6, with an attractive price tag of Rs 26.21 lakh (ex-show Maharashtra). Packaging the renowned Quattro four-wheel drive system and a capable 2.litre TDI diesel - putting out 177PS of power and 380Nm of torque - the Q3 is one highly impressive car to drive. What’s more, the Audi Q3 competes with the Range Rover Evoque in size, but costs a tad more than the BMW X1. Which is why we are not surprised that the German brand today announced that all of the 500 units allotted for the Indian market in the first round have been sold out.
Potential buyers looking to get their hands on the new Q3 will now have to wait for some more time as the second round of bookings for the next 500 units of the compact crossover will begin by the end of June, 2012.
Commenting on the success, Michael Perschke, Head, Audi India, said, “The success of Audi Q3 is setting the speed for us to race ahead towards our next level of growth in India. This year, we have already surpassed our expectations in the Indian luxury car market and now we are even more confident of maintaining the momentum as the Audi Q3 invites new customers to our family. Our confidence that Audi Q3 will repeat the success of Audi Q5 and Audi Q7 and further consolidate our leadership position in the luxury SUV segment has been reiterated. We will open the next round of bookings for 500Audi Q3’s by the end of June, 2012 and expect a similar response from our customers.“
