Audi has set a new global sales record in September 2013 after posting a 10-percent year-on-year surge in deliveries to 150,300 vehicles. The German carmaker particularly posted strong sales growth in China with 28.2 percent and in the United States at 6.2 percent.

The German carmaker likewise posted positive deliveries in its home market Europe, where it grew by around 3 percent.  The carmaker also posted a 7.6-percent increase in global sales in the first nine months of 2013 to around 1,180,750 cars. Audi has also delivered about 150,400 units of the entire A3 family in the January to September period.

The German carmaker recently launched the latest member of the A3 family – the A3 sedan – in Europe. Audi will roll out the A3 Sedan in China next spring.

Audi’s sports utility vehicles were particularly strong in September, posting a double-digit growth of 28.2 percent to 45,530 cars in China.

The Changchun-built Audi Q3 and Q5 accounted for around 72 percent of that sales growth. Another locally made Audi vehicle, the A4 L, logged strong growth at 41.1 percent. The German carmaker posted an overall gain of 20.6 percent in China in the first nine months of 2013 to 358,213 units. Audi delivered around 13,065 vehicles in the US in September, reflecting a 6.2-percent year-on-year hike.

The Audi Q5 also proved popular in the US, as the compact SUV gained 44.9 percent to 3,268 units. The Q5 has been available in the US as TDI clean diesel since July 2013. Audi just launched in August a high-performance top model of the series, the SQ5 TFSI.

The carmaker posted an overall 13.6 percent surge in sales in the US in the first three quarters of the year to 114,411 units. [source: Audi]
