Sales chief Luca de Meo: “The A3 family and Q3 and Q5 SUV models continue to fuel growth”
Strong double-digit growth in China
Successful beginning to the second half of the year: AUDI AG delivered around 131,300 cars to customers in July, representing an increase of 9.8 percent year-on-year. Especially the brand’s SUV sales made a significant contribution to this growth. Demand for the models with the four rings made particularly strong gains in China, up 27 percent. Worldwide, Audi sold a total of around 911,800 cars in the first seven months of the year, thereby increasing deliveries by 6.9 percent.
“After a strong first half of the year, we expect to surpass our strategic target of 1.5 million deliveries this year, two years earlier than planned,” says Luca de Meo, Member of the Board of Management for Sales at AUDI AG. “This is also underlined by our deliveries in July, which we were able to increase thanks primarily to strong demand for the new A3 family and our Q3 and Q5 SUV models.”
Following the successful launch of the Sportback version in February, around 113,600 customers received the keys for a model from the A3 family from January through July (+9 percent). In this period, sales of the Q3 compact SUV increased by 61.9 percent, while those of the Q5 rose by 17.1 percent. For both SUV models combined, a total of around 50,900 more units were sold than one year previously.
