Audi Bucks Trend Reports 0.4% Rise in Sales

Dec. 8, 2008
Company credits its range of models

Demonstrating that the Volkswagen division had bucked the prevailing sector slump,sales by Audi rose 0.4% in November, the company said on Dec. 8.

For the January-November period, the high-end unit of Europe's largest auto company, said sales rose 3% from a year earlier to 920,700.

Board member Peter Schwarzenbauer said that Audi had coped well "thanks to its young and attractive model range," while noting that "unfavorable background conditions in all sales regions are presenting a great challenge."

Audi has recently revamped models like its A4 and has a relatively small presence in the U.S., which has helped it to weather a debacle there better than many rivals.
