With 438,250 units sold in 2015, Audi’s global sales increased in the first quarter by 6.1 percent compared with the same period 2014 – with growth in all regions. With a plus of 4.4 percent to around 177,950 cars, Audi delivered more automobiles in a single month than ever before. This means that the German manufacturer has registered an increase in sales for 63 months in a row.
“Our new record in the first quarter makes for a successful start into the new year, and we intend to continue this trend throughout the rest of the year,” says Luca de Meo, Board Member for Sales and Marketing at AUDI AG. “In the second half of the year our new Audi Q7 will also start contributing to these figures in Europe. The initial response by customers and dealers has been very good, and orders are already exceeding our expectations – even before the model has hit the showrooms.”
