AUDI AG: prior-year sales total exceeded after 11 months
Audi continues to grow at a double-digit rate: In November, the Company’s worldwide deliveries were up 10.9 percent on the same month of 2011 to around 123,600 automobiles. Since January, the premium carmaker has handed over around 1,344,750 cars (+12.7%) to customers and has thus already exceeded last year’s record sales after 11 months of the current year. Sales for the whole of 2011 reached 1,302,659 units. Worldwide sales growth for Audi in November was fueled especially by the brand’s SUV models. Alongside the Q3, Q5 and Q7, the new A3 three-door version attracted extra customers to dealerships: The compact model, which went on sale in its first markets at the end of August, improved on its predecessor’s delivery total for November 2011 by almost half.
