Audi India will increase the price across its entire model range from January 1, 2022. The company’s current Indian portfolio includes the likes of Audi A4, A6, A8 L, Q2, Q5, Q8, all-electric e-tron range, and more.

German luxury car manufacturer Audi’s Indian subsidiary Audi India has today announced that the company will be increasing the prices across its entire model range by up to 3 per cent. As per the carmaker, the rising input and operational costs is the primary reason for this price hike. However, it must be mentioned that increasing the prices of cars and bikes in January every year has been a common practice in the Indian automotive industry since ages and all OEMs follow the suit.
