AUDI has maintained its path of growth worldwide in August: sales rose 5.6 per cent to around 125,300 cars.
This brings the total number of customers who have chosen an Audi since the start of the year to around 1,138,700, an increase of 10.5 per cent.
The four rings grew particularly strongly in North America in August, increasing sales by 22.6 per cent year on year.
“Worldwide demand for our automobiles continues to develop positively even if the economic environment in certain markets remains challenging.
Regarding our deliveries total, we are confident of selling 1.7 million cars by the end of the year,” said Luca de Meo, Member of the Board of Management for Sales at AUDI AG.
“As well as the A3 family, the popular A6 derivatives in particular and also the successful Q models are providing steady growth rates.” In August, most notably the Audi Q3 lifted the sales total with an increase of 40 per cent compared with the same month of the previous year.
There was lively demand for the compact SUV in the UK (+25.3 per cent) and China, where sales of this model more than doubled.
The Q3 has also been available in the US market since the end of August and will further strengthen sales of Audi’s family of SUV models there.
With 17,101 deliveries (+22.1 per cent) in the US, Audi maintained its successful track record on the North American continent in August.
