Audi Convertibles Leading the Way in 400,000+ Sales Quarter
The Volkswagen Group continues to see growth with a fast-paced quarter at Audi AG.
During March, Audi AG saw global sales increase by 15.4% to about 170,450 cars—more cars delivered to customers than ever before in a single month, and the 51st consecutive month with global sales growth. China (+36.6%), Germany (+10.2%) and the United Kingdom (+12.7%) had particularly high growth over the last month. And, sales chief Luca de Meo reported that growth in Europe was actually stronger than the market.
With overall sales increasing by 11.7% in the first quarter to about 412.850 units, this was the first time the company has exceeded the 400,000 mark in the first three months. De Meo, Member of the Board of Management for Sales at Audi AG, explained the significance of the period for Audi AG:
In March we achieved a double best figure, completing the most successful first quarter in our company history with the strongest sales month ever. With new models like the A3 Sedan the internationalization of our business is gaining momentum. In the first quarter we achieved substantial growth in all regions around the world and grew more strongly than the market in Europe.
