Audi AG, the premium luxury automaker wholly owned by VW, has delivered around 132,050 cars to customers worldwide in November, 6.8 % more than a year ago.
Especially in China (+17.9 %), the UK (+13.6 %) and the U.S. (+13 %), the premium manufacturer posted significant growth last month. In the first eleven months of the year, Audi delivered around 1,444,750 cars worldwide, representing an increase of 7.4 %. During this period, the brand registered double-digit growth rates in each of the sales regions Asia-Pacific (+19.4 %) and the Americas (+12.0 %).
“Following November’s good results, we have already these days exceeded the prior-year sales total of 1.455 million deliveries and are on course to reach our target of 1.5 million by year’s end,” says Luca de Meo, Member of the Board of Management for Sales at Audi. “The new A3 family as well as the Q3 and Q5 SUV models have driven this growth in recent months.”
Recently supplemented by the sedan variant, the A3 family continued to show significant growth in November with a 40.7 % increase. At the upper end of the model portfolio, the A8, whose refresh was just launched, gained 10.2 %. Since the beginning of the year, in particular the Q3 (+57.1 %) and Q5 (+14.2 %) have strengthened Audi’s global business. From 2016 on, the Q1 compact SUV model will further expand the successful Audi Q family.
