Audi India head Balbir Singh Dhillon said, “In terms of what has come in the Budget, I don’t think it is going to impact our plans. There is no doubt that we are going to move towards electrification. We will bring e-Tron. This will come sometime later this year.”
The import duties on fully imported commercial EVs will increase to 40 per cent from 25 per cent. Whereas the semi-knocked down electric passenger vehicles will increase up to 30 per cent from 15 per cent.
“In any case, we are going to bring (e-Tron) 100 per cent imported. The segment that we belong to, the duties are already very high,”
The company is also saying that it will not sell it in thousands unless there is a very substantial effort by the government where the import duties are substantially reduced.
Speaking about the production of EV in India he said that it is difficult to manufacture in India till we reach a minimum mass to manufacture in India. Till that time it will be fully built and imported in the country with of course high duty.
