Luxury car manufacturer Audi is planning to launch a few more luxury cars in the Indian market. Audi currently sells five car models in India - Audi A8, Audi Q7, Audi A6, Audi A4 and Audi TT Coupe.

After launching the new A4 sedan, Audi India's Managing Director Benoit Tiers said, “We already have five models in India. We plan to launch more luxury car models in the Indian market, including the small car A3 at an appropriate time”.

He also said, “We are looking forward to sell 1,000 of our cars in the Indian market in 2008, compared to 350 cars last year on the back of growing demand for luxury cars in the market. The new Audi A4 will be a crucial product to help us achieve this goal.”

Apart from a raised sales target for 2008, the company is also planning to set up additional five showrooms in Chennai, Kochi, Ahmedabad, Kolkata and Ludhiana respectively by the end of this year. Currently, Audi has showrooms in Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Hyderabad, Gurgaon, and Chandigarh. At present there are only 7 Audi dealers in India.
