Audi Delivers 50,000 To China
Audi achieved new record figures in the Chinese market in the first half of the year, increasing unit sales in China including Hong Kong and Macau by 17.8 percent to 268,666 automobiles. In June, the company for the first time passed the mark of 50,000 deliveries in one month (50,756, or plus 14.1 percent compared with the 44,479 deliveries in the prior-year month).
An important factor behind this success in the first half of the year was the production of cars locally in China: 224,666 deliveries represent growth of 21 percent. The Audi Q3 and Audi Q5 SUVs produced for the Chinese market confirmed their clear position as market leaders in their segments with deliveries of 35,140 and 52,216 units respectively. Amongst the imported vehicles, deliveries of the Audi A8L in China increased by 36 percent to 10,951, those of the Audi Q7 by 47 percent to 10,743 units.
Audi delivered a top performance in China also in terms of customer service: In the J.D. Power China Sales Satisfaction Index (SSI) measuring the satisfaction of premium-car customers, the brand with the Four Rings took first place for the fifth time in succession.
