The growth in Audi demand was led by the locally built stretched A4 sedan whose deliveries surged 33% from a year earlier to 13,985 last month.

BMW brand sales rose 8.3% to 44,135 in the same period. In the first 7 months, Audi still trailed Mercedes: Audi registrations jumped 17% to 359,781 while Mercedes sales advanced 15% to 392,780. BMW brand rose 4% to 330,671. Audi remained the best-selling luxury brand in China last year.
