Audi: On course for new records

Audi is on course for new records with record figures for market shares in Germany and Western Europe.
• Worldwide sales to Sept. up by around 11.2 percent on last year
• Sales in Germany up to September up by 13.0 percent on last year
• USA in September 34.6 percent up on last year

Sales worldwide
Audi was able to set a new record for worldwide sales in September: with around 77,600 vehicle sales (September 2004: 69,317), 11.9 percent more vehicles were handed over than in the same month last year. This meant that total worldwide sales for the first nine months climbed to around 631,600 vehicles, an increase of 11.2 percent on the corresponding prior-year period.

The number of markets achieving historic record figures went up from 35 to 39. This also includes the USA, where 7,854 vehicles were sold (Sept. 2004: 5,835, 34.6 percent), the best-ever figure to be achieved in September.

"In the coming 36 months – in addition to our existing model range – we will present six completely new models for market introduction. This will give Audi another clear boost“ said Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of the Management Board of AUDI AG.

“We are certain to significantly exceed the sales target of 800,000 vehicles which we set ourselves for this year”, stated Ralph Weyler, Member of the Board for Marketing and Sales at AUDI AG. “Our success has been based on record sales in an increasing number of markets and is quite clearly a result of our young and attractive model range. This can be seen above all by the development of the market shares – with 7.7 percent in Germany and 4.3 percent in Western Europe, we have achieved the highest figures in our history as a premium supplier.”*
