Audi sees May sales record
ABJ - June 13 - AUDI AG achieved an all-time sales record for May with around 128,900 cars delivered and a 13.7 per cent gain compared with the same month last year. The company sold around 600,200 cars worldwide in the first five months (12.1 per cent) and has now set itself a target of 1.4 million cars by the end of the year.
“The current order intake proves that the first half of the year will exceed our expectations in all regions. We have therefore now set ourselves a new target of 1.4 million deliveries for the year as a whole,” said Peter Schwarzenbauer, Member of the Board of Management for Marketing and Sales at AUDI AG.
In the United States, sales of ‘cars with the four rings’ increased in May by a considerable 10 per cent, to 11,503 deliveries. Gains mainly achieved by the new A6 Sedan and both the Q5 and Q7 SUV models more than offset the effects of two major model changes: the imminent U.S. introduction of the new generation of the A5 as well as of the A4, Audi of America’s top-selling model. Since January, Audi has sold 52,494 cars in the United States, 14.5 per cent more than in 2011.
