BMW has fallen and Audi is the number-one car in the Indian luxury market in Q1 2013, reports The Economic Times. New of the change of guard stemmed first from auto-blogger Rushlane.
While BMW tumbled to third place in the standings, as Mercedes-Benz ranked second for the quarter, the automaker remains confident that its business in India is headed in the right direction. Audi has similar sentiments toward its position and feels that it will be number one in the nation’s luxury auto market for 2013 when it is all said and done. Sparks are flying.
"The BMW Group is a very successful global company and continues to strive for a worldwide balance in sales. We will continue to our success story in India in 2013 due to the availability of new models such as the BMW 1 Series in the third quarter and a full year availability of the BMW 3 Series this year," the BMW spokesperson added.
