Article by Christian A., on September 9, 2014

There is no secret that Audi sales are up in China and United States but the German manufacturer is not confident that it can sell even more cars this year and it raised its full-year global forecast to 1.7 million vehicles. Thanks the Q3, Audi managed to increase its sales by 40 percent compared with the same month of the previous year.

In addition, the Q3 is expected to get even more popular as it has been available in the United States since the end of August. Audi sold 1.58 vehicles in 2013, while in the first 8 months of this year the German carmaker, owned by the VW Group, 1.13 million vehicles left the showrooms.

The Audi Q3 wasn’t the only vehicle that improved sales, as the A3 compact and A6 midsize models also helped the company achieve the record numbers. Despite the decline in Europe, sales in China increased by 10 percent in August, while the United States saw a record of 22 percent to 17,101 vehicles delivered.

“Worldwide demand for our automobiles continues to develop positively even if the economic environment in certain markets remains challenging. Regarding our deliveries total, we are confident of selling 1.7 million cars by the end of the year,” remarked Luca de Meo, Member of the Board of Management for Sales at AUDI AG. “As well as the A3 family, the popular A6 derivatives in particular and also the successful Q model are providing steady growth rates.”
