“We have thus strengthened our position as the leading premium brand in China,” stated Luca de Meo, Member of the Board of Management for Sales at AUDI AG: “We are well on the way to achieving our target of delivering significantly more than half a million cars to customers in China this year.”
An important factor behind this success in the first half of the year was the production of cars locally in China: 224,666 deliveries represent growth of 21 percent. The Audi Q3* and Audi Q5* SUVs produced for the Chinese market confirmed their clear position as market leaders in their segments with deliveries of 35,140 and 52,216 units respectively. Amongst the imported vehicles, deliveries of the Audi A8L* in China increased by 36 percent to 10,951, those of the Audi Q7* by 47 percent to 10,743 units.
Audi delivered a top performance in China also in terms of customer service: In the J.D. Power China Sales Satisfaction Index (SSI) measuring the satisfaction of premium-car customers, the brand with the Four Rings took first place for the fifth time in succession.
