With a growth of 15.4 percent, German car maker Audi delivered 1,70,450 cars to its customers in March, highest ever in a single month. Fuelled by demand for the expanded A3 line, Audi's European sales, accounting for almost half of its global deliveries, went up by 7.2 percent in the month, led by double-digit growth in Germany and the UK. This result also made March the 51st consecutive month with global sales growth for the four ring brand. Audi’s cumulative sales increased by 11.7 percent in the first quarter to around 4,12,850 units. This was the first time that the company has exceeded the mark of 4,00,000 vehicles in the first three months.
“In March we achieved a double best figure, completing the most successful first quarter in our company history with the strongest sales month ever,” said Luca de Meo, Member of the Board of Management for Sales at AUDI AG. “With new models like the A3 Sedan the internationalization of our business is gaining momentum. In the first quarter we achieved substantial growth in all regions around the world and grew more strongly than the market in Europe."
