Audi’s 11-month sales in 2010 have already exceeded record sales in 2008

Article by Christian A., on December 9, 2010

With one month left in 2010, Audi said that it has already surpassed the record full-year sales figure that was set in 2008. From January to November 2010, Audi has sold 1,003,900 vehicles, which is 500 more than what Audi sold for the entire 2008. This sales figure is 15.3% higher than 2009 sales.

Peter Schwarzenbauer, Audi member of the board for Marketing and Sales, said that the orders in Germany continue to increase, more so in the fleet customer market.

Private customers are also showing a lot of interest in the Audi A1. Schwarzenbauer revealed that Audi may have had some high sales growth recently in China but Germany is expected to still be its biggest market in 2010.

Like other German carmakers, Audi has experienced both exponential increase and high volumes in China. For the first 11 months of 2010, Audi has sold a record 200,000 vehicles in China.

Audi has maintained this positive trend in Europe, where Audi reported increases in most markets, except the Western part of the continent. Here, the 3.7% drop has put a damper on its excellent global performance. This decrease is believed to be due to the poor performance in the UK, where Audi posted a 13.3% drop in November.
