Audi Australia has announced a new online purchasing platform and delivery service for every model in its range, joining sister company Volkswagen and a growing list of Australian brands offering some form of contactless sales solution during COVID-19.
Audi’s online system – which the brand says does not require buyers to leave their home at any stage – allows selection and configuration of a dealer stocked model, a ‘virtual walkaround’, payment of a refundable $500 deposit to reserve a car, and home delivery of the new vehicle when the transaction is complete.
Home test drives are also offered, with an Audi representative bringing the vehicle to a potential buyer’s home to conduct the test drive.
Financing and vehicle trade-in are also available during the online process. CarAdvice understands the trade-in process can also be done from buyers' homes, though the process for assessing the trade-in vehicle may vary depending on which dealer is carrying out the inspection.
