2 million cars sold by Audi in US

Audi said yesterday that it has crossed a very important milestone: over two million vehicles sold in the United States. The milestone came in late June with the sale of an Audi A3 TDI, the reigning 2010 Green Car of the Year, to a customer at Keyes Audi in Van Nuys, California. The car is part of a new Sportback model line by Audi, with the A7 aiming to go against the Mercedes-Benz CLS in the "four door coupe" segment.

Audi first entered the U.S. market 40 years ago with the Audi Super 90 and Audi 100, and it plans to hit the three million mark in fewer years. Since 2000, Audi has doubled its model count in the U.S. market and tripled the number of variants it offers.

The 2 million Audis sold in the U.S. include breakthrough models, such as the Coupe quattro, the Audi 5000, the Audi V8, the Audi A4, the Audi TT, the Audi R8, the Audi Q5 crossover, the Audi Q7 TDI clean diesel and the all-new Audi A8 flagship coming out in November.

Audi concept cars suggest there are indeed more progressive innovations and designs to come from Audi, including the e-tron electromobility studies.

To celebrate the achievement of reaching 2 million U.S. sales, Audi invites auto enthusiasts to imagine how Audi vehicles and personal transportation will appear when the brand reaches 3 million in sales. That discussion can be found at facebook.com/audi under "Driver's Spotlight" and Facebook fans are encouraged to submit renderings depicting their visions of the future.
