  • Increasing demand in all regions, continued positive extraordinary effects in Europe
  • Interim CEO and Sales chief Bram Schot: “Ushering in new era with first fully electric Audi”

The Audi brand beat its 2017 results by 10.9 percent in August with around 153,900 premium automobiles sold. Among the core regions the number of deliveries grew most strongly in Europe (+21.5%). Here the deliveries of models in stock as part of the switch to WLTP and model changeovers continued to have a positive effect on the sales figures. North America (+5.1%) and China (+6.0%) also saw positive growth in the past month. Audi delivered more than 1,268,550 automobiles to customers (+5.5%) since January.

“The renewed increase in deliveries underscores the Audi brand’s appeal. At the same time, we continue to focus on the difficult next few months with the switch to WLTP and the model initiative,” says Bram Schot, interim CEO and Board member for Sales and Marketing at AUDI AG. “In addition, we are ushering in a new era for our company with our first fully electric car, the Audi e-tron.” The Audi e-tron will be celebrating its world premiere on September 17 in San Francisco. Through 2025 more than 20 new electrified automobiles will be augmenting the portfolio of the Four Rings.
