Audi Sets New Sales Record Selling 1 Million Cars in 11 Months

Dec. 8, 2010
Strong demand in China, U.S. and Germany

Luxury car maker Audi, which is owned by Volkswagen, said on Dec. 8 that it set a new sales record with deliveries of more than one million vehicles in the first 11 months of the year.

Audi has sold 1,003,900 cars since January 1, beating its former annual record of 1,003,469 that was set in 2008.

Growth has been driven by strong demand in China, the United States and Germany, the company said.

Earlier on Dec. 8 BMW posted an annualised 19.8% jump in November sales to 129,014 vehicles, its "highest percentage monthly growth of the year so far," according to a statement.

Luxury car makers missed out last year when governments enacted a raft of cash for clunker subsidies that helped drivers trade in old cars for new ones, but have made up for lost time this year amid a global economic rebound.
