European Audi sales up six percent in November

This past November, Audi sales in Europe increased six percent since last November, with Audi selling 62,300 units. This is incredibly impressive considering the change over from the B8 to the B9 Audi A4, Audi’s best-selling model. Even more good news for the four rings, Audi takes up 3.4 percent of the world market share, selling to 1.64 million customers.

“In light of extraordinary effects in China and the model phase-out for the first-generation Q7 in the United States, we are satisfied with our sales performance in November,” says Dietmar Voggenreiter, Member of the Board of Management for Sales and Marketing at AUDI AG. “The sustained high demand for Audi models in Europe and our good global order situation continue to provide momentum for the months ahead.”

The sales in Europe were mostly bolstered by the new models to have debuted this year. Sales of the new Audi Q7 quadrupled in November to the tune of 3,300 units. Sales of the Audi TT are up 83.5 percent to 1,550 units and even the sales of the A3 e-tron are increasing.

I've been in love with cars since I was a kid, specifically German cars. Now I get to drive them talk about them on the internet.
