AUDI AG sold approximately 893,600 cars worldwide between January and November, a rise of 7.3 percent on the prior-year period (2006: 833,021). In November itself, more than 75,600 cars were handed over to their new owners (up 0.5 percent; 2006: 75,258). Audi enjoyed further growth particularly in the intensively competitive European markets.
Ralph Weyler, Member of the Board of Management at AUDI AG for Marketing and Sales, commented: “We will end this year having sold more than our anticipated total of 950,000 vehicles. Despite the end of production of our highest-volume model and the difficulties experienced by the German market in 2007, we will notch up our twelfth record year in a row.”
