Audi AG delivered around 164,000 premium automobiles to customers in June. In the United States, sales of the Four Rings were up 0.3 per cent, on a par with the prior-year level. As a result, Audi of America achieved its 90th consecutive record-breaking month. In China, deliveries failed to reach the record-breaking level from 2017 (-7.2 per cent) due to the announced tariff reductions. In Europe too, Audi sales were down 1.8 percent on last year. Worldwide and across all Audi models, deliveries increased by 4.5 per cent since the start of the year. Cumulative sales total around 949,300 units. “Despite the difficult environment, we performed well thanks to the positive development in Asia and North America in the first half of the year,” says Bram Schot, interim CEO and Board Member for Sales and Marketing at Audi AG. “We expect a challenging, but also exciting second half of the year with further model changeovers and the presentation of our first all-electric model, the Audi e-tron.” In the United States, the number of deliveries in June was up 0.3 per cent, on a par with the prior-year level.
