Underpinning further indications that the luxury segment is climbing off its death bed, Audi just announced amazing numbers for the first quarter of 2010. Audi just had the best quarter in recorded Audi history. Audi’s worldwide sales climbed by 26 percent in the first three months of 2010, writes Das Autohaus [sub]. In March, the four-ringed daughter of Volkswagen sold 110.400 – never had Audi sold so many cars in a single month. And who’s buying all those Audis?
You guessed it. “Drivers on the growth in March and the first quarter again were China and the complete Asia-Pacific region,” reports Das Autohaus.
Audi’s Q1 sales by region:
Europe up 12 percent
U.S.A. up 34.8 percent
Argentina, Brazil up 70.5 percent
China up 77.3 percent
Africa, Mid-East up 40.2 percent
