Speculations in the air say that the Audi plans to roll out small cars to India, however the official announcement regarding the launch is not made. According to Martin Birkner, Vice President, Audi India ‘we have no plans to roll out Audi A3 to India, Tata’s ultra-cheap car Nano has created a new class in small cars and it is not possible to  hold on to that price  for the company’.
