Audi India to focus on digitisation | Online sales and service initiatives introduced
Audi India takes big steps towards digitisation to make the car buying experience not only hassle-free, but also fun thanks to the AR and VR technology
Audi India today announced a vital step in digitisation with the introduction of digital sales and after sales offerings. The German carmaker has also integrated Augmented Reality, a 360-degree product visualiser and online bookings on the Audi India website to digitise car buying experience.
Buyers can now familiarize themselves with features, configure their Audi, explore finance options and place an order, all online, from the comfort of their home. Audi is the first luxury carmaker in India to introduce Virtual Reality (VR) to further engage their Q8 and A8 L buyers.
Commenting on the announcement, Mr. Balbir Singh Dhillon, Head, Audi India, said, “Digital customer-centric initiatives are a key focus area for Audi in India. We have been at the forefront of enabling and introducing future technologies for our customers – including Augmented and Virtual Reality elements. While our belief in a digital future is already profound, the advent of Covid-19 has only made it stronger as to how we interact with our customers going forward. With the initiatives announced today, we are taking digital experiences to the living rooms of our customers and offering them the flexibility to purchase their preferred Audi of choice and even book their next service appointment online.”
