The VW AG luxury brand has managed to continue its strong pace for the year, with another double-digit sales increase for the month of November to the record-breaking figure of 146,250 autos.
While the second-largest premium automaker in the world saw growth across all regions, the company was especially buoyed by the Asia Pacific region – with China, the world’s biggest auto market, in particular. For the January to November period, the carmaker managed deliveries of 1,591,100 vehicles, rising 10.1% from the same period of 2013 and already reaching last year’s full tally (1.575 million cars).
Back in China, its single largest market, Audi sold more than 52,544 units, an increase of 18.5%. For the 11-month tally, Audi has already moved a total of 516,356 vehicles – crossing the half a million milestone for the first time. In the United States, the four rings brand continued its very strong results with the 47th record?breaking month in a row – 16,640 units, up 22% from the same month last year.
In Europe, the home country of Germany proved a little difficult in November, with sales dropping 4.3% to 19,901 cars. For the period so far, sales are positive though, growing 2.8% to 240,849 units. The United Kingdom also proved particularly successful – with deliveries last month at 11,295 units and for the period since January crossing the 150,000 mark for the first time.
