Audi wants to be clear: Just because the Tesla Model S is outselling Audi's flagship A8 in the U.
S. luxury sedan market, it does not mean Tesla Motors is beating Audi.
In a blog post today on Audi of America's official news channel, the company says it has a problem with recent news reports praising Tesla. Why? Headlines such as this one, from CNNMoney.com: "Tesla sales beating Mercedes, BMW and Audi."
"Some reports are giving Tesla too much credit," Audi says. "The fact is that Tesla's reported sales of 4,750 units of its Model S electric car in April were less than half of Audi of America sales of 13,157 vehicles in the month, which represented a 16-percent rise from a year earlier. BMW and Mercedes-Benz sold even more than that."Read Article
