Audi achieves further growth in Europe and North America

  • Rising demand in Europe (+3.1%) and North America (+11.8%) in January
  • Worldwide deliveries fall by 13.5 percent to around 124,000 units due to temporary extraordinary effects in China
  • Audi sales chief Voggenreiter: “Remain optimistic about our future business development in China”
  • New Audi Q5 and A5 Sportback launch in Europe

AUDI AG delivered around 124,000 cars to customers in January. In particular, demand continued to rise in Europe (up 3.1% to 61,800 units) and North America (up 11.8% to 16,200 units). Sales in China fell by 35.3% to 35,181 cars. In the last month, Audi established a long-term, strategic growth plan for the coming decade together with its Chinese partner FAW. Against this background the Chinese Audi dealers had planned a restrained business volume at the start of the year. This temporary development in China also affected the global sales balance: Worldwide deliveries fell by 13.5 percent compared with the record-breaking figures for the prior-year month.
