Audi sales advance 13% on demand for locally built A4 sedan
Automotive News China | 2018/10/9

Audi is maintaining robust sales and outpacing the overall China market with September deliveries rising 13 percent year on year to 65,767.

The growth was led by the locally produced, stretched A4 sedan. Sales of the upgraded A4L surged 42 percent to 17,199 last month.

Deliveries of the imported A8 sedan also jumped 66 percent to 1,426 in the month. Audi didní»t disclose sales results of other models for September.

In the first nine months, the German luxury brandí»s China sales advanced 15 percent to 483,001.

The Volkswagen Group in April launched a plant in the northeast China city of Changchun to produce the stretched Audi Q5 crossover only. 

In the past few months, the German auto giant opened new factories in the east China city of Qingdao, South China city of Foshan and north China city of Tianjin. The Foshan and Tianjin plants build Audi models as well VW brand cars.

The elongated Q2 crossover went on sale in late September. It is the fifth product and the third crossover Audi produces locally, following the A3, A4 and A6 sedans and the Q3 and Q5 crossovers. 

Audií»s two archrivals, Mercedes-Benz and BMW, have not released China sales results for September.
