Audi posted its second- best month ever in May 2014 when it sold 16,601 vehicles in the United States. It also marked the carmaker’s 41st month of record US sales in a row. For the first five months of 2014, the German carmaker logged an 11.4-percent jump in US sales to 67,482 vehicles.

Mark Del Rosso, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Audi of America, remarked that the carmaker’s growth in the US was thanks to the demand for the all-new A3 sedan, which was able to contribute within a few weeks of its launch.

He noted that Audi’s most exclusive models still account for one-third of overall demand. Sales of the A6, A7, A8 and Q7 models represented around 46 percent of the overall Audi sales growth to account for 33.4 percent of Audi’s US sales.

Audi launched the A3 this spring, and the sedan has quickly become one of the three in-demand models, with sales of 2,261 cars in the US. The Audi A6 grew 21.7 percent in the month to 2,151 vehicles and 20.8 percent to 9,719 in the first five months of 2014.

The Audi A7, meanwhile, surged 22.8 percent in May to 861 vehicles and 10.3 percent to 3,783 vehicles in the first five months of 2014. Luxury SUVs like the Audi Q5 and Q7 also helped the carmaker post strong results in May.

The Audi Q5 crossover logged a jump of 13.5 percent in May to 3,836 units and 7.3 percent in the year to date.

The Audi Q7, meanwhile, recorded a leap of 14.7 percent in sales to 1,455 vehicles in May and 30.9 percent in the first five months of 2014. Sales of Audi Certified pre-owned vehicles sales posted an 19.8-percent jump to 4,162 CPO vehicles in May and a 15.2-percent hike in the January-May period. [source: Audi]
