Karthik H, A bit of a car freak and a bike nut, and a fan of trucks and technology too. Expect sharp stories that focus on those four fronts. As always, stay tuned to IndianAutosBlog.com for quick and unassuming updates from across the world.

Battle for the top spot for FY2016 heats up.

Audi India pipped Mercedes-Benz India to the top selling luxury brand post by a mere 79 units. While the former sold 11,292 units between April 2014 and March 2015, Mercedes-Benz sold 11,213 units. The other member of the German trio, BMW India, hasn’t yet shared its sales figures for the fiscal.

The A3 Cabriolet was one of the 4 launches for Audi India last fiscal. 2015 will see the company launching up to 10 models.

The previous fiscal, however, saw a wider gap at the helm between Mercedes and Audi. While Mercedes had sold 9,548 units, Audi India became the first of the three to cross the 10,000 units per year figure to finish the 2014 fiscal at 10,126 units. Mercedes-Benz has recovered to register a growth of 17.5 percent to have its best-ever year and Audi has managed to record a growth of 11.51 percent. To be noted is the fact that Audi India had only 4 launches in the entire fiscal, compared to a flurry of models launched by Mercedes-Benz.
