Audi sets half-year record sales with 869,350 deliveries

Audi is proud to announce that in the first six months of the year they were able to deliver approximately 869,350 cars which means they have taken down their half-year record sales. Last month they sold around 155,450 units all over the world which represents a significant 10.8 percent increase compared to the same period of 2013. North America was one of the largest contributing factors with a 21.2 percent year-on-year increase.

Back in June in Europe, Audi’s sales went up by 6.4 percent to 69,250 cars while in China they sold more than 50,000 vehicles, representing the first time when Audi reaches this mark. As far as North American sales in the first half of the year are concerned, United States saw a 13.6 percent increase to 84,349 units while Canadians bought 8.8 percent more cars.

Audi’s record sales were also helped by customers in Mexico who purchased 10.4 percent more cars compared to the first half of 2013. We’ve looked over Audi’s sales figures in June across various countries and all of them saw an increase, except for Russia where sales decreased by 3.3 percent to 3,000 units and by 1.2 percent to 17,996 units in the first half of the year.

Popular models in United States were the Q5 (+15.2 percent), A3 Sedan and A8 while in China the most popular model was the Q3 (+61.3 percent). In Spain, the A3 Sportback sales increased by 18 percent while in Germany, UK and Italy sales also went up between January and June compared to the same period of 2013.
