Here’s another proof that Audi is on its way to become the no. 1: for the first time in history it has been outselling Mercedes worldwide! Have a look at BMW numbers later, maybe there’s another surprise?
Audi sold 264,100 vehicles worldwide between January and March while Mercedes sold 248,500 units over the same time period. For what it’s worth, BMW has yet to release its final first-quarter sales figures.
Audi has repeatedly signaled its desire and intent to become the world’s leading luxury car brand by 2015, which would mean passing both of its German rivals, the aforementioned Mercedes-Benz and BMW, along with Japanese automaker Lexus. Plus, Audi offers a pretty compelling lineup of vehicles with which to do battle with those formidable competitors.
