In March, Audi delivered more cars to customers than ever before in a single month with around 170,450 deliveries worldwide, a 15.4 percent year-on-year increase. This result also made March the 51st consecutive month with global sales growth for the four rings. China (+36.6%), Germany (+10.2%) and the United Kingdom (+12.7%) achieved particularly high growth in the past month. Audi’s cumulative sales increased by 11.7 percent in the first quarter to around 412,850 units. This was the first time that the company has exceeded the mark of 400,000 vehicles in the first three months.
In March, the convertibles with the four rings played an important role in the successful start to the spring season with the A5 Cabriolet (+8.3%) and the TT Roadster (+22.6%) achieved a significant global increase year-on-year.
In addition, the new A3 Cabriolet arrived at dealers in the first markets.
The A3 Sportback g-tron also celebrated its premiere at dealers in March, paving the way for CO2-neutral mobility with Audi e-gas. For the entire A3 family, sales figures climbed by 52.5 percent to around 28,750 cars last month. The Audi Q7 (+39%) and the A8 (+49%) achieved the strongest growth among the flagship SUV, saloon Audi range.
