Record sales for Audi

Audi reported that the firm sold 516,000 autos worldwide between January - June, meaning a rise with 1.4 percent that's compared with the first 6 months of the last year and the best first half-year also in the firm history.

Audi expects also 2008 to be that year when they will reach record sales of more than 1 million vehicles for the first time in history.

“In 2008 we will achieve record sales of more than one million cars for the first time in our history,” said Rupert Stadler Audi Chairman. “The first half of the year was marked by major model changes for us, yet we’re already two percent above target.”

“We will launch the updated Audi A3
in July. For the A4 important new engine versions in the mid-performance range are on their way and in September sales start on the US market,” said Peter Schwarzenbauer, a Member of the Board of Management for Marketing and Sales of AUDI AG. “We will reap the rewards of this product initiative in the fourth quarter,” continued Schwarzenbauer.
