Audi India has announced that it had started the local production of its 2022 Audi Q7 at the SAVWIPL (Skoda Auto Volkswagen India Private Limited) plant situated in the Aurangabad city of Maharashtra. Audi is resuming the production of the 2022 facelifted Audi Q7 after it discontinued the previous variant of Q7 in April 2021, given the changed pollution control regulations and the implementation of BSVI norms.
2022 variant of Audi Q7 is expected to be available on sale anytime in the first month of 2022. The upcoming variant of Audi A7 will be only available in the petrol version, while the discontinued in April Audi Q7 was available in both petrol and diesel options. Audi, a German car manufacturing company, has been advocating electric vehicles to curb pollution since last year. However, Audi chose to retain the traditional form of fuel – crude oil.
2022 Audi Q7 ranks second on the company’s SUV (Super Utility Vehicle) lineup after Audi Q8, which entitles the first position. Audi Q8 was launched in January 2020 at the starting price of Rs 98.98 Lakh. The top model of Audi Q8 called RS Q8 is priced at Rs 2.08 Crore and comes with Turbo Petrol Engine.
Facelifted 2022 Audi Q7 will be produced in Aurangabad and the newly launched Audi Q5. According to Audi India, Audi Q5, starting at Rs 58.95 Lakh, accounted for 45 percent of India’s sales. Audi has yet to disclose the official launch date for the 2022 facelifted model of Q7.
