When the individual parts are installed in one of the Audi models in Aurangabad, they have a long journey behind them. They are first transported by train from the European production sites to the port in Hamburg, Bremerhaven or Antwerp; the Audi Q3* comes directly from Barcelona, Spain. From there, the individual parts are transported by ship through the Mediterranean Sea and the Suez Canal to the port of Nhava Sheva in Mumbai-covering a distance of about 11,000 kilometers (6,835 miles). They are transported the last 480 kilometers (298 miles) from Mumbai to Aurangabad by truck.
With the development of the Indian market, Audi is continuing its success story and growth trend, and is investing in an automobile market with very high potential.
