This had to happen! In a country obsessed with diesel sipping luxury SUVs, Audi Q3 was bound to get successful. Further, an aggressive marketing campaign targeting the young and the affluent, seems to have paid off well as the Q3 has bagged 500 bookings within merely 5 days of its launch! Achieving a response like this for a vehicle that is positioned on the wrong side of INR 25 lakhs price range is no easy task and as we had predicted, Audi Q3 might really turn out to be a game changer for Audi India and BMW better beware. It may be noted that as we had earlier reported, bookings were available only for the first 500 units of the new car and this latest news means that Audi will surely have to work overtime to meet the huge demand for this new vehicle. While the Audi Q3 is not positioned bang on in the BMW X1 territory, it is for sure that the latest from Audi will have a negative impact on the Bimmer. However, it remains to be seen if the BMW X1, which currently does anything between 500-800 units per month, will face enough heat from the new Audi to get a revised price tag. The German auto major has stated that the next batch of 500 Q3 crossovers will come next month and deliveries for this should begine by August.
