Audi sold 50,756 cars in China last month

Audi is proud to announce that last month they managed to get beyond the 50,000 mark in China as far as sales in a single month are concerned.  They delivered 50,756 units which represents a 14.1 percent increase compared to the same month of 2013 when they sold 44,479 cars. Moreover, in the first half of the year, Audi’s sales in China (including Hong Kong and Macau) rose by a significant 17.8 percent to 268,666 automobiles.

One of the main reasons for this sales success has to do with the local production of cars as in the first six months Audi produced and sold 224,666 cars, representing a whopping 21 percent increase. Market leaders for Audi where the locally-built Q3 and Q5 crossovers as they shifted 35,140 units of the Q3 and 52,216 units of the larger Q5.

As far as import models are concerned, the Audi A8L was a huge success since sales went up in the first six months of the year by 36 percent to 10,951 units, while the Audi Q7 deliveries increased by 47 percent to 10,743 cars.

On a related note, Audi also managed to make a good impression in China in terms of customer service as in the J.D. Power China Sales Satisfaction Index (SSI) – which measures premium car customer satisfaction – they topped the rankings for the fifth time in the row.
