  • Vice President Global Marketing and Sales Martin Sander: “Expect positive momentum in the second half of the year”
  • Model changeovers have adverse effect on business in United States and China

AUDI AG delivered around 151,900 premium automobiles to customers worldwide in May. As such, deliveries were down 5.4 percent year-on-year. In Western Europe, the company closed the month over last year (+1.5%); the increase in demand in the domestic market Germany (+3.5%) and in France (+12.2%) made a positive contribution. In China (-7.4%) and North America (-5.7%) the model changeovers of important high-volume models continued to have a detrimental effect on deliveries. In the first five months the Four Rings handed over 5.8 percent less than in the same period in 2018.
