AUDI AG: Sales in the Americas increase 11 percent in May
- Deliveries worldwide reach around 153,850 in the month – up 1.2 percent
- Sales chief Luca de Meo: “Launch of the Q7 in Europe will provide positive momentum”
- Audi TT sales doubled in May
At around 153,850 cars, Audi’s worldwide deliveries in May were slightly above the figures from the same month last year (+1.2%). In addition to the upcoming model changes for the Audi Q7 and the A4, the brand’s top-selling model, the current reticence to buy in the Chinese luxury segment was particularly noticeable. The picture in the Americas is, however, very different: here sales of the four rings continued to increase sharply, up 11.1 percent to around 24,500 vehicles. The Audi TT, whose global sales doubled in the month (+96.6%), also helped drive the company’s sales. Across all models, Audi has delivered around 744,900 cars to customers since January, an increase of 4.3 percent.
