Thanks to strong demand in Germany, China and the USA, VW subsidiary Audi once again posted a strong sales surge in September.

In Germany, the rate of increase was also 16 percent. Audi recorded the greatest growth in the A6, as demand from corporate customers increased significantly again. The Ingolstadt-based company is also satisfied with the A1's first month of sales. "The A1 is extremely well received: more than two thirds of the vehicles that we can still deliver this year have already been pre-ordered," said Sales Director Peter Schwarzenbauer. “In the fourth quarter, this new volume model will give us additional tailwind in Europe. For 2011 we have already increased the production capacities of the A1 by 20 percent.”As Schwarzenbauer said in an interview with the Autogazette on Wednesday, the original plan was“100,000 cars, now we are assuming 120,000 cars for the coming year”.
Audi continues to be successful on the Chinese market, which saw an increase of 45 percent in September. In the first nine months, Audi delivered 829,300 cars worldwide, 17.6 percent more than a year earlier. For this year Audi is planning a new record year with 1.080 million vehicles, Schwarzenbauer said in an interview with the Autogazette. (AG / dpa)
