Audi Q3

Audi Q3, Q3 Sportback Local Production Commences

Earlier, Audi brought both the Q3 and Q3 Sportback models to India as completely built units (CBU), which is often also referred to as direct imports. However, to reduce tax impositions and boost local operations, the carmaker has now started bringing the kits to India and producing the Q3 SUV and Sportback locally at the SAVWIPL plant in Aurangabad, Maharashtra.

While Audi haven’t shared any price revisions for both these models, we expect the prices to go 

down a notch owing to the lower tax impositions on locally-produced vehicles over direct imports. It is worth mentioning that Audi India recently hiked the prices of their entire model range by up to 2.4%. Read more about the Audi India price hike by clicking the link below.
