Audi in November: Deliveries remain down on last year due to exceptional situation

In China, the company set a new record-breaking figure.
The brand’s current model range posted sales of 57,721 units in China in November, surpassing the same month of the previous year by 2.7 percent. In the middle of the month, the Ingolstadt-based automaker celebrated its 30th anniversary with local partner First Automotive Works (FAW) and set out joint plans for the future: Audi wants to increase its local portfolio to more than ten models through 2022.
  • Around 132,650 deliveries in the month, down 16.7 percent
  • Highest November sales ever in China, exceptional effects continue in Europe
  • Audi interim CEO Bram Schot: “Laying down markers for the future in challenging phase”

Global deliveries of the Four Rings in November fell by 16.7 percent year-on-year to around 132,650 automobiles. In Europe, extraordinary effects due to the switch to the WLTP test cycle along with the challenging phase-in and phase-out scenario as part of the Audi model initiative continue to affect sales. As a result, the company delivered 33.9 percent fewer units in Europe last month than in the same month in 2017. Deliveries from the Ingolstadt-based automaker also fell 9.1 percent in North America on account of imminent model changeovers. By contrast, China continued to grow (+2.7%). Cumulative global sales since January were down 2.4 percent on the corresponding period of 2017 at around 1,657,950 units.
