Audi Achieves Strongest Starting Quarter with Over 450,000 Deliveries

Audi has released their first quarter results for 2016, and so far, things are looking quite good.  After achieving their best month in company history in March, Audi has delivered more than 450,000 vehicles so far this calendar year, up 4 percent over 2015’s first quarter numbers.

This growth in demand is a result of strong sales for the all-new Audi A4 and Q7, seeing a 14.6 percent jump in deliveries for the A4 and a massive 93.1 percent for Q7 worldwide.  Audi’s A3 saw impressive growth in China, up 34.7 percent in March.

Individual markets also saw noteworthy increases, with Germany (+10.8%), Italy (+28.7%), Spain (+14.4%) all achieving double-digit growth year-to-date, and Canada seeing an incredible 42.9% increase in March.

  • March as best month in the company’s history, up 4.6 percent to 186,100 cars worldwide
  • Sales chief Dietmar Voggenreiter: “Record start to the year demonstrates Audi’s brand strength”
  • Strong demand for the new Audi A4 and Audi Q7

Double record for the brand with the four rings: Audi concluded the best first quarter in the company’s history along with the most successful sales month. In March, Audi increased global sales by 4.6 percent to a monthly high of around 186,100. That brings cumulative deliveries since January to around 455,750 cars, 4 percent more than in the same quarter last year. Growth during the first three months was mainly driven by strong demand in Europe and America. Audi has also seen increases in China since the beginning of the year.
