Earlier, Audi had announced that it aims to have 15 per cent of its sales to be electric vehicles globally in the next three years. Dhillon had said, "By 2026 onwards, all new generation cars will be electric. If we get reasonable volumes, we can start assembly of EVs in India only."

Dhillon said Audi is taking utmost care about safety of EV batteries amid several EV fire incidents across India. The Centre has recently issued notices EV manufacturers whose vehicles were reported have exploded due to faulty batteries. At Audi, all components for the battery are brought individually and assembled at its facilities by trained professionals, clarified Dhillon.

On the back of its EV launch spree last year, Audi India reported a massive 101 per cent jump sales in 2021. The increase in sales is compared to the previous year. Even during the first six months of this year Audi has witnessed a jump of 49 per cent in sales.
