Audi is happy to announce their recent August sales were the best ever in the company’s long and prolific history.

Compared to August 2014, the company delivered last month 2.7% more cars, bringing the grand total to 128,650 vehicles even though orders from China dropped by 4.1% while deliveries in Russia collapsed by 15.4%. The good news for the company with the four ring logo is those poor results were offset by the European market where deliveries jumped by 6.9% while in the Americas sales rose by 10%.

Since the start of the year, Audi sold 3.4% more cars compared to January – September 2015, thus delivering a total of approximately 1,777,100 units.

United States posted some solid results last month when 18,794 cars were sold, representing a hike of almost 10% while Brazil posted a massive 20.3% increase to 1,410 units. As for Mexico, they were also big fans of Audi as sales went up by 14.9% to 1,258 units.

Moving to Western Europe, Audi enjoyed a 7.7% increase thanks to boosted sales of the A6, A7, Q7 and A8 which combined accounted for about 7,250 cars. Germany was a solid market for Audi in August as sales increased by 13.5% to 15,394 cars.
