Audi posted a 12-percent surge in global vehicle sales in January to 124,850 units, boosted by its performance in Germany and China. According to Audi, deliveries leaped in all of its major markets and there is a strong demand for its compact vehicles. The carmaker logged a 67-percent rise in sales of its A3 lineup last month to 17,450 units, a 73-percent jump in sales of its Q3 to 15,000 units.

"We seamlessly built on the 2013 record figures in January and are taking this momentum into the new year,” Audi sales chief Luca de Meo said in a statement, adding that it is aiming to continue its growth this year and “develop more strongly than the worldwide overall car market." Audi said the results built on record sales in 2013 and added that it was confident of future growth in the coming year. 

Audi posted an 18-percent surge in sales in China in January to 44,526 units, and an 8-percent leap in Europe to 53,750 vehicles. The luxury carmaker saw a 19-percent rise in sales in its home market Germany to 17,426 units. In January, Audi grew 9 percent in the United Kingdom to 10,783 vehicles and less than half a percent in the United States 10,101. Audi targets to sell 2 million cars annually around the world by 2020. [source: Audi]
