The all-electric Audi E-tron will be about a month late at the showrooms than planned because of adjustments to the software for the car.
A spokesman stated to Reuters that the software would be re-approved, as adjustments were made during the development phase.
Previously, Bild am Sonntag reported that, in addition to software delays, Audi may also have problems with the supply of the battery packs for the E-tron.
The supplier, LG Chem, would have wanted to raise prices up to 10 percent during the negotiations with the German brand. The South Korean company would have pointed to the high demand for the E-tron as a reason for the price increase, according to Bild.
Audi has reportedly received 15,000 orders for its first fully electric car.
