That's why German carmaker Audi has drastically raised its standards for car horns built for export to India. Audi representative Michael Perschke explained:
“You take a European horn and it will be gone in a week or two. With the amount of honking in Mumbai, we do on a daily basis what an average German does annually.”
Perschke said the horns are specially adapted for driving conditions in India, a booming market where Audi is one of many foreign car brands competing for increasingly wealthy customers.
“The horn is tested differently – with two continuous weeks of only honking, the setting of the horn is different, with different suppliers,” he said.
Can anyone who has been to Mumbai confirm what this article says about the use of car horns in that city?
