Audi reaches top spot in the Indian Luxury Car Market. In June, car maker Audi edged out market leader BMW in sale of Luxury Cars in India to gain the top spot. According to SIAM (Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers) Audi had a sale 759 units vs 750 units by BMW for June,2012. The surge in Audi's sales are mainly attributed to the newly launched Audi Q3 in India. BMW however has disputed these numbers claiming that Audi has submitted wholesale & not retail numbers to SIAM and that its actual retail sale has been 718 units vs 750 of BMW. Nevertheless Audi has shown tremendous growth in India and has doubled its sales figures since the same time last year. BMW on the hand, which has been the market leaders for over two years, has seen its growth stunted by its aging portfolio but plans to refresh promising a launch of 4 models this year.
