Audi maintains growth trend in May

Audi is one brand on which the mother company Volkswagen strongly relies on, continues to confirm the 2018 world domination goal, as in May, it registered a double digit growth of its worldwide sales. 113,400 cars were sold last month, which represents 19.5 percent more than in the same month of last year. The increase has been of 17.5 percent since the beginning of the year, as the famous German brand sold no more than 535,400 units. 65,400 cars were sold in Europe, which implies that it remained the most important market for Audi and for the first time in their history, China was outpaced 108 percent to 44.6 percent by India, announcing that it no longer posts the biggest scores. However, it continues to represent one of the most important car markets for Audi, many enthusiasts seeing it as more important than Volkswagen's new preference, the US. Peter Schwarzenbauer, Audi member of the board for Marketing and Sales stated that they had completed the capacity extensions to their production line in Changchun and were able to build 300,000 cars locally there each year, adding that their growth strategy for imported models was also bearing fruit as from January through May they had sold 21,817 imported cars in China, showing an increase of 76.7 percent on the prior-year period. The usual As used to be the best-selling models in the line-up, but the SUVs or the Qs from the line-up proved to feature a strong recovery, which gave them reasons to be optimistic about the prospects of the Audi Q3, which is planned to hit the market in the fourth quarter of the year.
