After a slow start at the beginning of the year, 2017 has turned into a banner year for car manufacturer Audi, with high sales through the latter part of the year and record breaking numbers for the month of November. So far this month, , with a total of nearly 1.7 million deliveries since January.
North American Sales
Sales in North American have been the highest, with a total of 23,650 vehicles sold. The majority of those were in the United States, where sales increased an astonishing 12.1% with a total of 19,195 Audi models making their way off the lot.
November was a good month for the A5 Sportback, with more than 1,100 of them going to customers in the United States. This marks the 83rd record month in a row for Audi in the United States.
Canada’s sales grew dramatically as well, with sales growing by 19.3%.
While the North American sales were fantastic, the sales in China accounted for most of the record breaking month. Their overall sales only increased by 6.5%, but in the overall scheme of things, that accounted for 56,208 sales.
Sales of Audi vehicles in China have grown since the this past May, but it has also created the best new market for sales growth in the company’s history. Since January, more than 500,000 vehicles have been sold and delivered in the country.
Europe has always been a great market for Audi sales, and since the launch of the new A8, sales have taken off. Italy’s sales for November increased by 4.2%, while Spain increased by 1.6%. Sales have dropped slightly in the UK and France, with a decline of 6.1% and 1.4% respectively. German sales haven’t really gone up or down much in the past year, with a slight drop of less than 0.6%.
Who do we thank for this? Perhaps the advertising, or the economy. Or even women, as this year . We won’t have the final sales tally for the year until after the New Year, but if the trend continues, Audi should prepare itself for some good years to come.
