Audi July unit sales up 16%, driven by China

Aug 23, 2011 3:57:17 PM - www.ft.lk

Volkswagen’s premium car brand Audi sold 16 per cent more cars in July than a year earlier, thanks mostly to growth in China, Audi said on Friday.

July sales in China were up 35.2 per cent at 27,767 vehicles, accounting for more than a quarter of group sales, it said.
German makers of high-end cars such as Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz have benefited from wealthy Chinese consumers’ appetite for luxury goods.
Audi’s group vehicle sales grew 17.4 per cent in the first seven months of the year, helped by 29.2 per cent growth in China, a 25.2 per cent gain in France and a 15.4 per cent gain in its German home market.
