Audi India has said that petrol power will play a bigger role in its Indian operations in the near future. The company has witnessed a notable increased in demand for its petrol powered models and saw their share jump from 15 per cent in 2015 to 30 per cent this year.
Its latest addition, the Q7 40 TFSI, has come on the back of this demand and is likely to boost this number further. If its plan to bring electric cars here bears fruition then it will place a lower emphasis on diesel models and instead have a larger range of alternate powered vehicles in its line-up.
However, if the electric car plans do take longer than it aims to, by 2020, we shall have a 50 per cent divide in terms of petrol and diesel models.
