Audi achieved a new sales record in China in 2010, selling more than 100,000 in China (including Hong Kong for the first time ever) during the first half of this year and expects to match this result in the remaining months of 2010. This means a gain of about 64 percent compared to the same period last year.
In June alone, the Company delivered 21,436 cars to Chinese customers.
"2010 will be a record year for Audi in China. We will deliver 200,000 vehicles to customers," sales Chief Peter Schwarzenbauer said in a statment.
The Company achieved a new record figure in terms of deliveries of vehicles built in Changchun – selling a total of 93,993 cars, an increase of 57 percent on the corresponding prior-year period.
59,465 Audi A6L models were sold, meaning a gain of 28 percent, while sales of the Audi A4L almost doubled (up 95 percent), as 26,622 cars were delivered. The Audi Q5, of which production only began at the end of last year, made a successful start with a total of 7,906 vehicles delivered.
For imported vehicles, the brand gains a total of 139 percent to 14,607 cars. With 2,351 vehicles delivered, sales of the Audi A8 (including the S8) were up 26 percent, while deliveries of the Audi Q7o rose by 77 percent to 5,288 vehicles.
Audi has been operating successfully in China for 22 years now, and builds the A4L, A6L and Q5 in Changchun together with its joint venture partner FAW.
