The rise in input cost, depreciating rupee as well as continuous increase in fuel prices have made us re-evaluate our pricing strategy in India and increase the prices of the entire range,” said Michael Perschke, Head, Audi India.The company sold 850 cars in October this year as compared to 482 units in October 2011. From January to October this year, 7,267 vehicles have been sold as compared to 4,692 units sold in the year-ago period.
