A new record-breaking year for AUDI AG: In 2012 the company sold around 1,455,100 premium automobiles worldwide, 11.7 percent more than in the previous year. The Ingolstadt-based carmaker thus clearly surpassed its annual target announced in summer of 1.4 million cars – above all thanks to strong growth rates in North America and Asia. With deliveries exceeding the previous year's figure by more than 152,000, this was Audi's second-highest jump in sales in the history of the company. Only one year previously, in 2011, Audi had attracted around 210,000 additional customers. With around 110,400 deliveries (+0.8%) in December 2012, Audi reached again the strong sales total of the excellent final month of 2011.
